The Peppery Man was cross and thin; He scolded out and scolded in; He shook his fist, his hair he tore; He stamped his feet and slammed the door. Heigh ho, the Peppery Man, The rabid, crabbed Peppery Man! Oh, never since the world began Was any one like the Peppery Man. His ugly temper was so sour He often scolded for an hour; He gnashed his teeth and stormed and scowled, He snapped and snarled and yelled and howled. He wore a fierce and savage frown; He scolded up and scolded down; He scolded over field and glen, And then he scolded back again. His neighbors, when they heard his roars, Closed their blinds and locked their doors, Shut their windows, sought their beds, Stopped their ears and covered their heads. He fretted, chafed, and boiled and fumed; With fiery rage he was consumed, And no one knew, when he was vexed, What in the world would happen next. Heigh ho, the Peppery Man, The rabid, crabbed Peppery Man! Oh, never since the world began Was any one like the Peppery Man.
