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.

No, no, no:

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 was torrid.

(clearly she was over 18 years of age)
