And dreamt she heard them bleating;
But when she awoke
She found it a joke,
For still they all were fleeting.
Her little crook,
Determined for to find them;
She found them indeed,
But it made her heart bleed,
For they'd left their tails behind them.
It happened one day, As Bo-peep did stray Unto a meadow hard by,
There she espied
Their tails side by side,
All hung on a tree to dry.
WHEN good king Arthur ruled England,
He was a goodly king:
He took three pecks of barley meal,
And what they could not eat that night,
NIX little mice sat down to spin;
Pussy pass'd by, and she peep'd in ;
What are you at, my jolly old men?
Shall I come in and cut off your threads?
SING! sing! what shall I sing?
The cat's run away with the pudding
And he woo'd a little maid,
And he said, Little maid, will you wed, wed, wed?
I have little more to say,
Than will you, yea or nay?
For least said is soonest mended-ded, ded, ded.
The little maid replied,
Some say a little sigh'd:
But what shall we have for to eat, eat, eat?
Make a fire in the kitchen,
Or the little god of love turn the spit, spit, spit?
Song, set to Five Fingers.
1. THIS little pig went to market;
2. This little pig stayed at home;
3. This little pig had a bit of bread and butter, 4. This little pig had none;
5. This little pig said, Wee, wee, wee! I can't
find my way home.
And his bullets they were made of lead, lead, lead;
He went unto the brook, and shot a little duck,
And he hit her right through the head, head, head. Then he went home unto his wife Joan,
And bid her a good fire make, make, make;
For to roast the little duck he had shot at the brook, And he'd go and fetch home the drake, drake, drake.
IDE a cock-horse to Banbury Cross,
To see what Tommy can buy;
A penny white cake, and a galloping-horse,
And a hugey penny pie.
OUND about, round about, maggoty pie;
My father loves good beer, so do I.
