London Bridge is Broken Down. 87

THE CELEBRATED SONG OF LONDON

BRIDGE IS BROKEN DOWN.
LONDON Bridge is broken down,

Dance o'er my lady lee;
London Bridge is broken down,

With a gay lady.
How shall we build it up again?

Dance o'er my lady lee;
How shall we build it up again?

With a gay lady.
Build it up with silver and gold,

Dance o'er my lady lee;
Build it up with silver and gold,

With a gay lady.
Silver and gold will be stolen away,

Dance o'er my lady lee;
Silver and gold will be stolen away,

With a gay lady.
Build it up with iron and steel,

Dance o'er my lady lee ;
Build it up with iron and steel,

With a gay lady.

Iron and steel will bend and bow,

Dance o'er my lady lee;
Iron and steel will bend and bow,

With a gay lady.
Build it up with wood and clay,

Dance o'er my lady lee ;
Build it up with wood and clay,

With a gay lady.
Wood and clay will wash away,

Dance o'er my lady lee ;
Wood and clay will wash away,

With a gay lady.
Build it up of stone so strong,

Dance o'er my lady lee; Huzza! 'twill last for ages long !

With a gay lady.

THE HAPPY MAN. HAPPY the man who belongs to no party, But sits in his own house and looks at Ben Arty!

LOVERS' CONVERSATION.
As Tommy Snooks and Bessy Brooks

Were walking out one Sunday,
Says Tommy Snooks to Bessy Brooks,
"To-morrow will be Monday.”

· FIDDLING JOHN.
“JOHN, come sell thy fiddle,

And buy thy wife a gown !"
“No, I'll not sell my fiddle

For e'er a wife in town !"

MY LITTLE HUSBAND.
I HAD a little husband,

No bigger than my thumb,
I put him in a pint pot,

And there I bade him drum;
I bought a little horse,

That galloped up and down,
I bridled him, and saddled him,

And sent him out of town;
I gave him a pair of garters

To tie up his little hose,
And a little silk handkerchief

To wipe his little nose.
