WHAT has my girlie been doing today 

While mamma has been to the city away? 

"I happied the baby! And, mamma, you see, 

That made the whole morning real busy for me." 

A moment she sat there, the wise little head 

Was busily thinking, then quickly she said,— 

"When he's big as me, what will baby-boy do 

To happy himself? I wish that I knew." 

"Oh! Baby is learning quite nicely to play; 

And you may learn one thing, my daughter, today— 

By happying baby—the dear little elf— 

You have happied your mamma, and happied yourself."
