Did nerves make yon shriek with snob, loudness When Curio's tooth bruised yon in play, Declare yon would hare hydrophobia, And cry nearly all the next day ? Do nerves make yon rosh for the pillows, Whenever a thunderstorm's near, And stop both your ears with your fingers And act almost f rantie with fear ? Do nerves make you fly from a beetle, And yell if a snake's within sight, And not for a million of money, Dare sleep all alone In the night ? Well, Lnoy, your nerves may be fragile ( 1 don't eontradiot yon, my dear But I know a good definition For people who won't conquer fear.
