Up the Hill

jack and jill
went up the hill
to fetch a pail of water
jack said “hey jill,
would you like a thrill?”
and then he tried to grab her

jill got mad
she knew that was bad
and hit jack with the pail
jack fell down
and broke his crown
and jill begain to wail

“jack is dead,”
through tears jill said
“but I didn’t mean to murder.
curse this hill,
and jack’s seeking thrills”
and the darkness of the well heard her

jack and jill
went up a hill
to fetch a pail of water
now jack lays slain
jill cured her pain
in the depths of the dark well after
