Henry had the hiccups
But he didn’t seem upset.
A baby doesn’t realize
How annoying they can get.
He’s too young for the water trick
And much too young to scare,
So he just had the hiccups
‘Til at last they weren’t there.
He cried from hunger and from gas
And maybe lack of sleep;
Though Henry’s hiccups bothered me,
They caused him not a peep.
