Hot boiled beans and very good butter.

As the dog went to Dover;
When he came to a stile,
Jump, he went over.

Now they tramp, now they champ, now they stand still.

Turn her face to the wall
Till she comes to.

Read my riddle, I pray.
What God never sees,
What the king seldom sees,
What we see every day.
