Longfellow's first draft:

There was a little girl,
            Who had a little curl,
Right in the middle of her forehead.
            When she was good,
            She was very good indeed,
But when she was bad she ...
threw a fit, cursed her parents, had a heart attack and lay ...
on the floor -- dead.
