From The Littlest One by marion st.john webb.The squeaky shoes.
There's aunt matilda's child'en
and they're playin' hide-an-seek,
but they sez I mustn't join them
'cos Ive got shoes that squeak.

An' when you're playin' hidin'
you must never make a sound,
or they'll creep along an hear you,
and you're certain to be found

They said," Put on your slippers,
come along an' hide away. "
but I said I'd keep my shoes on
or I wouldn't go an play.

So they've gone to play without me.
they can jus' do what they choose.
'cos I had them new this morning
I shall sit an' wear my shoes.
