~ The Cheerful Cherub ~
I’d never hesitate at risks
I’m eager for a thrill
Life’s always so exciting
When you live it with a will.

~ The Cheerful Cherub ~
My life is made of ups and downs
It’s that that makes it nice
I wouldn’t have an easy life -
The contrast gives it spice!

~ The Cheerful Cherub ~
They told me that fame was a bubble,
They loftily scorned worldly pelf,
And I grant that their words may be true, but -
I’d like to find out for myself!

~ The Cheerful Cherub ~
I try to imagine my menail work
Is really my idea of fun
And I might as well like it as not for of course
I know that its got to be done.

~ The Cheerful Cherub ~
I often fret and worry
And long for wealth and such
What makes me think, I wonder
That I deserve so much?

~ The Cheerful Cherub ~
I lost my garter at a dance
Where every one could see
It didn’t bother them, but ok -
The difference to me!

~ The Cheerful Cherub ~
Just keep trying all the time
Till at last your life is done,
You may never reach the top
but the climbing’s lots of fun.

~ The Best Laxative ~
To keep the bowels regular the best laxative is outdoor exercise. Drink
a full glass of water half an hour before breakfast and eat an
abundance of fruit and vegetables, also establish a regular habit and
be sure your bowels move once each day. When a medicine is needed take
Chamberlain’s Tablets. They are pleasant to take and mild and gentle in
affect. Obtainable everywhere.
