RIP upon trenchers, and dance
upon dishes, My mother sent me for some
balm, some balm ; She bid me tread lightly, and come again quickly,

In the stable forget me not.

To make a bag-pudding.

As big as my two thumbs. The king and queen did eat thereof,
And noblemen beside ; And what they could not eat at night,
The queen next morning fried.
