Little Children Learn to Curse and Swear

Little Children Learn to Curse and Swear
Pray take pity on me poor servant, I’m in distress,
Will you comfort me for I’ve came to rest?
Don’t let the enemy maintain the will of me,
Be my guide, pray be my guide.
As sung by Lemmy Brazil, Gloucester Christmas 1967. Collected by Peter Shepheard (Springthyme 67.8.2).

Pray take pity on me poor servant, I’m in distress,
Will you comfort me for I’ve came to rest?
Don’t let the enemy maintain the will of me,
Be my guide, pray be my guide.

Little children larns to curse and swear,
Before they larn one of our Lord’s prayers,
Such conversation, God he does not like,
Mark you well you shake just the rod before he strikes.
