The Boy Who Never Told a Lie

Once there was a little boy,
⁠With curly hair and pleasant eye—
A boy who always told the truth,
⁠And never, never told a lie.

And when he trotted off to school,
⁠The children all about would cry,
“There goes the curly-headed boy—
⁠The boy that never tells a lie.”

And everybody loved him so,
⁠Because he always told the truth,
That every day, as he grew up,
⁠’Twas said, “There goes the honest youth.”

And when the people that stood near
⁠Would turn to ask the reason why,
The answer would be always this:
⁠”Because he never tells a lie.”
