In the Garden of Eden lay Adam

Original Text: 
William S. Baring-Gould, The Lure of the Limerick (New York: Clarkson N. Potter, 1967): 114.
1In the Garden of Eden lay Adam
2Complacently stroking his madam,
3     And loud was his mirth
4     For he knew that on earth
5There were only two balls -- and he had 'em.
