Alderney Cow
First two stanzas from:

The King's Breakfast
by A. A. Milne

The King asked
The Queen, and
The Queen asked
The Dairymaid:
‘Could we have some butter for
The Royal slice of bread?’
The Queen asked
The Dairymaid,
The Dairymaid
Said, ‘Certainly,
I'll go and tell
The cow
Before she goes to bed.’

The Dairymaid
She curtsied,
And went and told
The Alderney:
‘Don't forget the butter for
The Royal slice of bread.’
The Alderney
Said sleepily:
‘You'd better tell
His Majesty
That many people nowadays
Like marmalade
