VP_016332 Verse 1When I went to school, We were so very poor I hadn't any coat at all, When it came fall. When the wind would blow, I used to shake and shiver so! From that came the name you recall. Ev'rybody calls me "Little Red Riding Hood" Ev'ry one laughed at me I must confess. Kids well clad rudely would stare For I had nothing to wear Until mother dyed her wedding dress From it made for me my little Red Riding Hood Saying, "One day there'll come, if you are good Fairy Prince with kindly face, He'll embrace, then replace With a wedding veil your little Red Riding Hood". Verse 2People ask my name, And when I tell them just exactly What I was baptized, They seem surprised, It is plain to see Until I'm "Missus Somebody", I'll answer that name they devised. Ev'rybody calls me "Little Red Riding Hood" Ev'ry one laughed at me I must confess. Kids well clad rudely would stare For I had nothing to wear Until mother dyed her wedding dress From it made for me my little Red Riding Hood Saying, "One day there'll come, if you are good Fairy Prince with kindly face, He'll embrace, then replace With a wedding veil your little Red Riding Hood".
