Subject: Origins: What Became of the Peas/Five Little Peas

Airymouse asked about this in another thread. I found it in Puck Magazine, Volume 14 & Volume 16, 1884.


In a pretty green pea-pod
Lived five little peas,
Who always said "Thank you"
And "Yes, if you please."

But one pea was naughty,
And cross, and a tease,
And frightened the four
Good little green peas.

They lay there one day,
Those five little peas,
When the naughty one said,
"I'm going to sneeze."

"Oh!" "Oh!" and "Oh!" "Oh!"
Said four little peas:
"It's dreadful to think of!"
"Oh, don't, if you please!"

But he said, "Yes, I will,"
That most wicked of peas:
"I shall do what I choose to,
And you needn't tease."

The pod never saw
Such a very big sneeze,
It split and out tumbled
Five little green peas.

That day there was blowing
A very strong breeze,
And I never could learn
What became of the peas.
