Here are the lady's knives and forks

Melody -

Here are the lady's knives and forks,
Here is the lady's table,
Here is the lady's looking-glass,
And here is the baby's cradle.

Infant amusement: The hands are placed back to back; the fingers pointing upwards and interlaced represent the knives and forks. With the fingers still interlaced the hands are turned over, the backs of the fingers forming the table. The two little fingers are then raised to make a looking-glass, and the index fingers are raised as well to complete the picture of an old-fashioned cradle.
