The Little Mothers of the rich
Are really works of art,
They are dressed up to such a pitch
In frocks so fine and smart.
They do not have to take the charge
Of baby boys or girls;
No, they have dolls exceeding large
With silky, flaxen curls.
Ah, Mothers in Society,
Accept this reasoning sound;
Dolls far less troublesome would be
Than children bothering round.
