Inscriptions In black ink, center of sheet: It's quite funny, when you're Three, /
That you just begin to see /
Lots of things you never knew /
When you were just One or Two. /

When I was just One and Two; /
Lots of things I couldn't do; /
And now, lots of things I see /
Only since I have been Three /

I'd rather be Three than Four, /
Five or Six, or Seven, or more; /
To be Three is much more fun
Than being only Two or One.
