THE MARRIAGE OF COCK ROBIN AND JENNY WREN.

Then followed him the Lark,

For he could sweetly sing;
And he was to be the clerk

At Cock Robin's wedding.
The Goldfinch came on next,

To give away the bride ;
The Linnet, being bridesmaid,

Walked by Jenny's side ;
And as she was a-walking,

Said, “ Upon my word,
I think that your Cock Robin

Is a very pretty bird.”
The Bullfinch walked by Robin,

And thus to him did say,
“Pray, mark, friend Robin Redbreast,

That Goldfinch dressed so gay ;
What though her gay apparel

Becomes her very well ?
Yet Jenny's modest dress and look

Must bear away the bell.”

Then came the bride and bridegroom ;

Quite plainly was she dressed,
And blushed so much, her cheeks were

As red as Robin's breast.
But Robin cheered her up;

“My pretty Jen,” said he,
“We're going to be married,

And happy we shall be.”
