LITTLE BOY BLUE








ITTLE boy blue, come, blow me your
'.'. horn,
The sheep's in the meadow, the cow's
in the corn.


Where is the little boy tending the sheep?
Under the haycock fast asleep-
Will you awake him? No not I;
If I do, he'll be sure to cry.

LADY-COW, LADY-COW.


ADY-COW, Lady-Cow,
Fly away home!
Thy house is on fire,
Thy children are flown,


All but a little one
Under a stone:
Fly thee home, Lady-cow,
Ere it be gone.

Runs through the town,
Upstairs and downstairs,
In his night gown;


Tapping at the window,
Crying at the lock,
"Are the babes in their beds?
For it's now ten o'clock."

For my Lady's daughter

My two little sisters are dressed in green,
Stamping marigolds and parsley.

King John has sent you letters three,
And begs you'll read them unto me.

CURLY LOCKS.


"j--- URLY locks, Curly locks,
S Wilt thou be mine?
Thou shalt not wash dishes
Nor yet feed the swine,
But sit on a cushion, and
Sew a gold seam,
And feed upon strawberries,
Sugar, and cream.

PEEP-PEEP.


SHAVE a little sister,

S They call her Peep-peep,
She wades through the waters,
Deep, deep, deep.
She climbs up the mountains,
High, high, high;
This poor little creature
She has but one eye.

The beggars are coming to town,
Some in rags, and some in jags,
And some in velvet gown.
