A LITTLE cock-sparrow sat on a tree,
Looking as happy as happy could be,
Till a boy came by, with his bow and arrow,
Says he, I will shoot the little cock-sparrow.

His body will make me a nice little stew,
And his giblets will make me a little pie, too.
Says the little cock-sparrow, I'll be shot if I stay,
So he clapped his wings, and flew away.

O LD Mother Goose, when
She wanted to wander,
Would ride through the air
On a very fine gander.

Mother Goose had a house,
'Twas built in a wood,
Where an owl at the door
For sentinel stood.

This is her son Jack,
A plain-looking lad,
He is not very good,
Nor yet very bad.

She sent him to market,
A live goose he bought,
Here, mother, says he,
It will not go for nought.

Jack's goose and her gander
Grew very fond;
They'd both eat together,
Or swim in one pond.

Jack found one morning,
As I have been told,
His goose had laid him
An e~g of pure gold.

Jack rode to his mother,
The news for to tell, ,
She called him a good boy,
And said it was well.
..?_.--:--
Jack sold his gold egg
To a rogue of a Jew, --__
Who cheated him out of
The half of his due.

Then Jack went a courting
A lady so gay,
As fair as the lily,
And sweet as the May.

The old Mother Goose
That instant came in,
And turned her son Jack .
Into famed Harlequin.

She then touched her wand,
Touch'd the lady so fine,
And turn'd her at once
Into sweet Columbine.

Jack's mother came in,
And caught the goose soon,
And mounting its back
Flew up to the moon.

And down at one gulp house and old woman went.

THE Cuckoo's a fine bird,
He sings as he flies;
He brings us good tidings,
He tells us no lies.


He sucks little birds' eggs,
To make his voice clear;
And when he sings "Cuckoo !"
The summer is near.

TOM, he was.a piper's son,
He learned to play when he was young;
But all the tune that he could play,
Was "Over the hills and far away."

But Tom with his pipe made such a noise,
That he pleased both the girls and boys;
And they stopped to hear him play,
" Over the hills and far away."

Tom with his pipe did play with such skill,
That those who heard him could never keep
still;
Whenever they heard they began for to
dance,
Even pigs on their hind legs would after
him prance.

As Dolly was milking her cow one day,
Tom took out his pipe and began for to play;
So Doll and the cow danced "tho Cheshire
round,"
Till the pail was broke, and the milk ran
on the ground.

He met old dame Trot with a basket of eggs,
He used his pipe, and she used her legs;
She danced about till the eggs were all
broke,
She began for to fret, but he laugh'd at the
joke.

He saw a cross fellow was beating an ass,
Heavy laden with pots, pans, dishes, and
glass;
He took out his pipe and played them a tune,
And the jackass's load was. lighten'd full
soon.

S~WAS once upon a time
When Jenny Wren was young,
So daintily she danced,
And so prettily she sung;
Robin Redbreast lost his heart,
F) or he was a gallant bird;
SSo he doff'd his hat to Jenny Wren,
& nRequesting to be heard.


S0 dearest Jenny Wren!
r If you will but be mine,
S You shall feed on cherry-pie, you shall,
And drink new currant wine;
/ I'll dress you like a goldfinch,
Or any peacock gay;
So dearest Jen, if you'll be mine,
Let us appoint the day.


Jenny blush'd behind her fan,
And thus declared her mind;
Since, dearest Bob, I love you well,
S^ I'll take your offer kind;
SCherry-pie is very nice,
And so is currant-wine;
But I must wear my plain brown gown,
And never go to fine.

Robin Redbreast rose up early,
All at the break of day,
And he flew to Jenny Wren's house,
And sung a roundelay;
He sang of Robin Redbreast,
And little Jenny Wren,
And when he came unto the end,
He then began again.



JENNY WREN fell sick
Upon a merry time;
In came Robin Redbreast,
And brought her sops and wine.

Eat well of the sop, Jenny,
Drink well of the wine;
Thank you, Robin, kindly,
You shall be mine.

Jenny, she got well,
And stood upon her feet,
And told RTbin plainly,
She loved him not a bit.

Robin being angry,
IIopp'd upon a twig;
Saying, Out upon you, Jenny!
Fie upon you, bold faced jig!

W HEN I was a bachelor, I lived all by myself,
And all the bread and cheese I got I put upon the shelf.
The rats and the mice they.made such a strife,
I was forced to go to London to buy me a wife.
The roads were so bad, and the lanes were so narrow,
I was forced to bring my wife home in a wheel-barrow.
The wheel-barrow broke, and my wife had a fall,
Down came wheel-barrow, wife, and all.

WHIEN a Twister a twisting, will twist him a twist;
For the twisting of his twist, he three times doth intwist;
But if one of the twines of the twist do untwist,
The twine that untwisteth, untwisteth the twist.

Untwirling the twine that untwisteth between,
He twirls, with the twister, the two in a twine:
Then twice having twisted the twines of the twine,
He twisteth the twine he had twined in twain.

The twain that, in twining, before in the twine,
As twines were intwisted; he now doth untwine:
'Twixt the twain inter-twisting a twine more.between,
He, twirling his twister, makes a twist of the twine.
