Description

Excerpt: ...these little birds back again flew, Fal de ral-al de ral-laddy. The other came after and then there were two, Fal de ral-al de ral-laddy. Says one to the other: "Pray, how do you do?" Fal de ral-al de ral-laddy. "Very well, thank you, and pray how are you?" Fal de ral-al de ral-laddy. 55 Bye, Baby bunting, Father's gone a-hunting, Mother's gone a-milking, Sister's gone a-silking, And Brother's gone to buy a skin To wrap the Baby bunting in. 56 Little Polly Flinders Sat among the cinders Warming her pretty little toes; Her mother came and caught her, Whipped her little daughter For spoiling her nice new clothes. 57 Tom, Tom, the piper's son, Stole a pig, and away he run; The pig was eat, And Tom was beat, And Tom ran crying down the street. 58 Jack and Jill went up the hill To fetch a pail of water; Jack fell down and broke his crown, And Jill came tumbling after. 59 A dillar, a dollar, A ten o'clock scholar; What makes you come so soon?

Is this the way you mind your sheep, Under the haycock fast asleep? 63 There was an old woman tossed in a blanket Seventeen times as high as the moon; But where she was going no mortal could tell, For under her arm she carried a broom. "Old woman, old woman, old woman," said I, "Whither, ah whither, ah whither so high?" To sweep the cobwebs from the sky, And I'll be with you by and by." 64 Cold and raw the north winds blow Bleak in the morning early, All the hills are covered with snow, And winter's now come fairly. 65 The man in the moon...show more
