Goldie Goodwin

My old Uncle Sidney he says it's a sign
All over the Worl', an' ten times out of nine,
He can tell by the name of a child ef the same
Is a good er bad youngun — ist knows by their name! —

So he says, " It's the vurry best sign in the Worl'
That Goldie Goodwin is a good little girl, " —
An' says, " First she's gold — then she's good — an' behold,
Good's 'bout 'leventy- hunnerd times better than gold! "
