Little Red Hood is back

Hey there little red riding hood
You sure are looking good
You're everything a big bad wolf could want

Little red riding hood
I don't think little big girls should
Go walking in these spooky old woods alone

Once upon a time, there was a little darling damsel, whom everybody loved that looked upon her,
but her old granny loved her best of all, and didn't know what to give the dear child for love. 

 Once she made her a hood of red samite, and since that became her so well, and she, too, would wear nothing else on her head,
people gave her the name of  "Red Hood."  

Once her mother said to Red Hood,
"Go; here is a slice of cake and a bottle of wine; carry them to old granny.
She is ill and weak, and they will refresh her.

But be pretty behaved, and don't peep about in all corners when you come into her room,
and don't forget to say 'Good-day.'

Walk, too, prettily, and don't go out of the road,
otherwise you will fall and break the bottle,
and then poor granny will have nothing."

Red Hood said, "I will observe everything well that you have told me," and gave her mother her hand upon it.
But granny lived out in a forest, half an hour's walk from the village.
Red Hood went into the forest.
