Ballad - "The Modern Snow White"

Miss White woke up in the morning
To find her handsome prince mourning
She got up and hugged him tight
He told her he was being ordered to fight
He did not want to leave her alone
So he ordered his mother to send uncle Stone
Uncle Stone did not come
His mother came and brought some plums
These were no ordinary plums
These came from the castle scums
One bite could kill you
A bird came down, cou, cou
And snatched a plum
Which was very dumb
Miss White ran down the road
And slowed when she came to a toad
She did not need to be further convinced
So she kissed her prince
