How Could Red Riding Hood?

How could Red Riding Hood been so good,
And still kept the wolf from the door?
Father and Mother she had none.
So where in the world did the money come from?
Please let me ask it - who filled her basket?
The story books never tell.
They say she was a maid most discreet,
And there is no doubt she must have been sweet.
But you know and I know that sweet girls must eat.
How could Red Riding Hood have been so very good,
And still kept the wolf from the door?
