Every night

Language: English after the English

Every night my prayers I say,
and learn my lessons every day.
And every day that I am good
I have an orange after food.

The boy that is not clean and neat,
With lots of toys and things to eat,
He is a naughty boy, I'm sure,
Or else his dear papa is poor.
