DOOBIN HOOD, Robin Hood,

1 Is in the forest wood ! Se Little John, little John,

He to the town is gone.
Robin Hood, Robin Hood,

Is telling of his beads, 1 All in the green wood,

Among the grassy weeds.
Little John, Little John,

If he comes no more,
Robin Hood, Robin Hood,

He will fret full sore !

SOBIN the Bobbin, the big-bellied

He ate more meat than four-

score men ;
He ate a cow, he ate a calf,
He ate a butcher and a half;

He ate a church, he ate a steeple,
He ate the priest and all the people !

A cow and a calf,
An ox and a half,
A church and a steeple,

And all the good people,
And yet he complain'd that he'd not

had enough.

DOCK-A-BYE, baby, upon the

tree top, When the wind blows, the cradle

will rock; When the bough breaks the

cradle will fall, Down will come cradle and baby and all.

DOCK-A-BYE, baby, thy cradle is O green; God Father's a nobleman, mother's

a queen ; And Betty's a lady, and wears

a gold ring; And Johnny's a drummer, and drums for the king.

gerus SC EE-SAW, Jack-a-daw,

Johnny shall have a new master; B o Johnny shall have but a penny

a day, Because he can't work any faster.

EE-SAW, sacaradown,
Which is the way to London

One foot up, the other foot down,
That is the way to London town.


CHOE the horse, shoe the colt,

Shoe the wild mare ;
Here a nail, there a nail,

Yet she goes bare.


SCING ! sing ! what shall I sing ?

The cat's run away with the Ko pudding-bag string.


SCING a song of sixpence, a pocket y full of rye,

Four and twenty blackbirds

baked in a pie. * When the pie was opened the

birds began to sing, And was not that a dainty dish to set

before the king ? The king was in the parlour, counting

out his money; The queen was in the pantry, eating

bread and honey; The maid was in the garden, hanging

out the clothes ; There came a little blackbird and

pecked off her nose.
