Johnny Lee ran away to sea,
But soon was homesick as he could be;
Now he is on his way back home,
Pretty well cured of his wish to roam
Oh, Johnny Lang,
You deafen me quite ;-
Such a clatter and bang,
Who can write ?
'Tis winter, the ground is covered with snow,
And with ice the rivers and lakes;
We put on our mittens and off we go,
Determined to try our new skates.
Up and down,
I1ound and round,
Is it not ?
Of all the places to build a nest,
These birds have chosen the very best;
. The projecting eaves will keep out the storm,
And the south side is sunny and warm.
This is a model of a boat:
Make yours like this, and you're sure 'twill float.
Ten to one these boys will get
Feet, a;Id shoes, anj clothes all wet.
With his long sharp tongue, as this bird
He catches the insects on which to feed.
Can that be a rabbit sitting there?
It seems to me lie has too long hair.
In the trap this fox is ti-lit,
And I believe it serves him right.
This is Little Nell,
Standing by the well.
Ever since this rich prince
Has to manhood grown,
By his treasure every pleasure
Has been made his own;
All things tasteful, bright, or rare,
From the sea, or earth, or air;
Even this dwarf
To make him laugh:
All in vain to ease his pain;
All his wealth he'd give for health.
Now, write away!

The Emperor Bonaparte, of whom you know,
Was bitterly hated, dreaded and feared,
And his name used often, so it appeared,
By nurse and school-marm,
As threat and alarm.
