Pinnikin, Pinnikin, stole the corn.

Squeak mouse, mouse, mousey;

[The two following are fragments of a game called "The Lady of the Land," a complete version of which has not fallen in my way.]

HERE comes a poor woman from baby-land, With three small children in her hand: One can brew, the other can bake,

The other can make a pretty round cake. One can sit in the garden and spin, Another can make a fine bed for the king; Pray ma'am will you take one in?

CCCXLIV.

I CAN make diet bread,
Thick and thin;

I can make diet bread,
Fit for the king

CCCXLV.

HERE we come a piping,
First in spring, and then in May;
The queen she sits upon the sand,
Fair as a lily, white as a wand:
King John has sent you letters three,
And begs you'll read them unto me.-
We can't read one without them all,
pray, Miss Bridget, deliver the ball!

So

CCCXLVI.

THE first day of Christmas,
My true love sent to me
A partridge in a pear tree.

The second day of Christmas,
My true love sent to me
Two turtle doves and

A partridge in a pear tree.

The third day of Christmas, My true love sent to me Three French hens,

Two turtle doves, and

A partridge in a pear tree.

The fourth day of Christmas,
My true love sent to me
Four colly birds,

Three French hens,
Two turtle doves, and
A partridge in a pear tree.

The fifth day of Christmas,
My true love sent to me
Five gold rings,

Four colly birds,

Three French hens,

Two turtle doves, and

A partridge in a pear tree.

The sixth day of Christmas,
My true love sent to me
Six geese a laying,
Five gold rings,

Four colly birds,

Three French hens,

Two turtle doves, and

A partridge in a pear tree.
