I’ll be your Valentine, if you will be mine. All of my life I’ll be your Valentine. My love is like a cabbage Roses are red, Divided into two. Violets are blue. The leaves I give to others, Honey is sweet But the heart I give to you. And so are you.

If the joke is after 12 o’clock the child will answer “April-Fool-Day’s-past-and-gone-you’re-the-fo ol-and-I’m-none!” Why it should be so remains a history.
