Little Dicky Dilver

Melody -

Little Dicky Dilver
Had a wife of silver;
He took a stick and broke her back
And sold her to the miller;
The miller wouldn't have her
So he threw her in the river.

Apparently a corruption, and abbreviation, of an earlier poem, describing the fortunes of a grain of wheat, personified as the wife of the farmer.
