DOOBIN HOOD, Robin Hood,
1 Is in the forest wood ! Se Little John, little John,
He to the town is gone.
Is telling of his beads, 1 All in the green wood,
Among the grassy weeds.
If he comes no more,
He will fret full sore !
SOBIN the Bobbin, the big-bellied
score men ;
He ate a church, he ate a steeple,
A cow and a calf,
And all the good people,
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.
@CEE-SAW, Margery Daw KD Sold her bed, and lay upon A straw; se po Was not she a naughty thing, To sell her bed and lie on the ground ? ,
CHOE the horse, shoe the colt,
Shoe the wild mare ;
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.
