TRIP upon trenchers, and dance upon dishes,
Yet didn't you see, yet didn't you see,
And spilt the water,
And huff'd my mother,
And chid her daughter,
And kiss'd my sister instead of me.
I'LL sing you a song:
The days are long,
The woodcock and the sparrow :
The little dog has burnt his tail,
THE cat sat asleep by the side of the fire,
Jack took up his fiddle, by Jenny's desire,
THE SOW came in with the saddle,
The broom behind the butt
Call'd the dish-clout a nasty slut:
AROUND the green gravel the grass grows green,
[The song of a boy while passing his hour of solitude in a corn-field.]
AWA' birds, away,
Take a little and leave a little,
And do not come again;
I will shoot you through,
THOMAS a Didymus, king of the Jews,
WHAT care I how black I be,
A LITTLE old man and I fell out;
How shall we bring this matter about?
BOBBY SHAFT is gone to sea,
With silver buckles at his knee;
When he'll come home he'll marry me,
Bobby Shaft is fat and fair,
RIDE, baby, ride,
Pretty baby shall ride,
And have little puppy-dog tied to her side,
And away she shall ride to see her grandmother.
To see her grandmother,
To see her grandmother.
THE rose is red, the violet's blue,
ONE misty moisty morning,
When cloudy was the weather,
There I met an old man
Clothed all in leather;
I LOVE sixpence, pretty little sixpence,
Oh, my little fourpence, pretty little fourpence,
And I took twopence home to my wife.
Oh, my little twopence, my pretty little twopence, I love twopence better than my life
I spent a penny of it, I spent another,
And I took nothing home to my wife.
Oh, my little nothing, my pretty little nothing, What will nothing buy for my wife?
I have nothing, I spend nothing,
I love nothing better than my wife.
Of all the gay birds that e'er
For all the day long she sits on a tree,
