Snips and Snails and Puppy Dog Tails…….

What are little boys made of?
Snips and snails, and puppy dogs tails
That’s what little boys are made of !”
What are little girls made of?
“Sugar and spice and all things nice
That’s what little girls are made of!”

    Anyways, Frogs and snails??? I thought it was Snakes and snails!!

    Several interpretations have been suggested but the one with the most credibility is that the original words were in fact ‘snips of snails’ – the origin of snips meaning ‘little bits of’.

    so it just means it is little bits of …..snails and puppy dog tails……got it ; )
