Jimmy John Jones.

Jimmy John Jones had hair of red And liked to nap in the flower bed. Mrs. J. Jones would holler and shout For Jimmy John Jones to "Get out, out, out!"

But Jimmy John Jones didn't get upset. He knew Mrs. Jones would soon forget How he mashed the pansies and bent the fern, Making her say he never would learn.

He knew Mrs. Jones didn't mean what she said: That she'd pull him by his tail from her prized flower bed. So he wriggled with joy when she gathered him up, For who could help loving a red-headed pup?
