PS 5






Very noble white veil sisters,
Honoring you makes the heart glad.
1 To Sister Marie of the Incarnation
We offer navigation
And this pretty little boat.
Miss Henrietta will think it's pretty.
2 We offer Sister Saint Vincent
This smart little pug dog.
Barking near her garden,
He will be a good guardian.
3 We offer our very dear Martha
This delightful little pig.
He will be her mount
When he's chasing after rats.
4 To honor Mélanie Lebon
It's Baptiste who'll set the tone.
He'll present her with a little cat
To lick the dishes clean.
5 What to say to offer this jug?
Ah! we really don't know.
Papa, here's the Master.
Let's get out of here, he's got that look about him!
