When I was one,
I was just begun.
When I was two
I was nearly new.
When I was three,
I was hardly me.
When I was four,
I was not much more.
When I was five,
I was barely alive..
BUT.... Now that I'm six,
I'm as clever as clever,
So I think I'll be six
Forever and ever.

Here is a house built up high,
With two tall chimneys reaching the sky.
Here are the windows,
Here is the door;
If we peep inside
There's a mouse on the floor.
