S was Papa's new Stick,
Papa's new thumping Stick, To thump extremely
wicked boys,
Because it was so thick.
T was a tumbler full
Of Punch all hot and good; Papa he drank it
up, when in
The middle of a wood.
U was a silver urn,
Full of hot scalding water; Papa said, "If that Urn
were mine,
I'd give it to my daughter!"
V was a Villain; once
He stole a piece of beef. Papa he said, "Oh,
dreadful man!
That Villain is a Thief!"
