The following song has been passed down in my family:

OLD MITH HONEYBUTH
(Author unknown)

Old Mith Honeybuth, the'th a proper thwell,
Gueth I'm very fond of her, and thithter Kate ath well,
Thith ith what I thay to her when we go out to tea:
"Oh, Honeybuthy kithy kuthy won't you marry me?"

Chorus
One horthe omnibuth, take a cup of tea,
Two horthe omnibuth, come thit upon my knee,
Three horthe omnibuth, how happy we thall be,
Oh, Honeybuthy kithy kuthy, won't you marry me?

We went down to Gravethend, all in her father'th buth,
In and out and round about, eleven or twelve of uth,
Down into the water Honeybuthy fallth,
I catch her by her thignon - and then I find the'th bald.

Chorus

When I marry Honeybuth there'll be a proper thow:
Forty thouthand bridethmaidth all thitting in a row.
I've got a pint of winkleth, tho bring your appetiteth
For Honeybuthy kithy kuthy everyone inviteth.

Chorus

Does anyone know anything about this song? Spelling is a problem, of course - it could be Old Mith Hunnybuth.

Searching for these words led me to a very strange website called CraigsLisp.
