I sent a letter to the fish, I told them, This is what I wish. The
little fishes of the sea, They sent an answer back to me. The little
fishes' answer was We cannot do it, sir, because ... I sent a letter
back to say It would be better to obey. But someone came to me and
said The little fishes are in bed. I said to him, and I said it plain
Then you must wake them up again. I said it very loud and clear,
I went and shouted in his ear. But he was very stiff and proud, He
said You needn't shout so loud. And he was very proud and stiff,
He said I'll go and wake them if ... I took a kettle from the shelf,
I went to wake them up myself. But when I found the door was locked
I pulled and pushed and kicked and knocked, And when I found the door
was shut, I tried to turn the handle, But ... Is that
all? asked Alice. That is all. said Humpty Dumpty. Goodbye.
