Lisa loves to listen

To a lovely lullaby;

Late at night she lowers her light

And lets it lull her sleepy eyes.

Lovely Layla looks like a lily,

but she says I shouldn't say that,

because it sounds silly.

Lauren had a little lamb

The lamb was light and slow

And everywhere that Lauren led

That lamb was slow to go.
