Bessies song to her doll

Lyrics

Matilda Jane, you never look
At any toy or picture-book
I show you pretty things in vain
You must be blind, Matilda Jane

I ask you riddles, tell you tales
But all our conversation fails
You never answer me again
I fear you’re dumb, Matilda Jane

Matilda darling, when I call
You never seem to hear at all
I shout with all my might and main
But you’re so deaf, Matilda Jane

Matilda Jane, you needn’t mind
For, though you’re deaf and dumb and blind
There’s some one loves you, it is plain
And that is me, Matilda Jane
