Translation:French Nursery Rhymes/Oh! Sweet Mother

French Nursery Rhymes  (1881) 
C. B., translated from French by Wikisource
Oh! Sweet Mother

OH! SWEET MOTHER

Oh! sweet Mother,
If you love me well,
Take a whip,[1]
Flog me well,
For I assure you
That small children
Are full of malice
Until they grow up.



  1. Verge (s.f.), rod, whip.
