THERE WAS AN OLD MAN WITH A BEARD (WHO FED THE BIRDS)
Original Limerick by Edward Lear
Additional Words by Emily Leatha Everson Gleichenhaus
Traditional Tune

There was an Old Man with a beard,
Who said, “It is just as I feared!
Two owls and a hen,
Four larks and a wren
Have all built their nests in my beard!”

He gave them a nice bit of dinner
He noticed they’d gotten much thinner
They dined on bird seed
A suitable feed
At cooking he was a beginner.

Together they all took a class
They craved a more-tasty repast
Though birdseed was fine
They sought meals divine
They were hungry and had to learn fast!

Then the Old Bearded Man and the fowl
Filled their dishes with food cheek-by-jowl
The food was delicious
And also nutritious
Their tummies would no longer growl!

There was an Old Man with a beard,
Who said, “I’m no longer a- feared!
Two owls and a hen
Four larks and a wren
Share dinner with me in my beard!”
