There once was a girl, there once was a boyAnd each one has a brand new toy.
He didn’t want his, she didn’t want hers,She’d rather have his, he’d rather have hers.
But they both were too stingy to figure it outThey argued and tussled and began to shout.
They quarreled and crumbled and started to fightThen Momma walked and set things right.
She picked up both toys as quick as a winkAnd then they were gone in one quick blink.
Now here is the girl and here is the boyAnd neither of them has even one toy.
For Momma said fighting, you must not doFor it only results in both of you blue.
So come now my children and follow this rule,You must not fight, you must never be cruel.
