THE OLD WOMAN TOSS'D UP IN A BASKET.There was an old Woman toss'd up in a Basket,Nineteen times as high as the Moon;Where she was going I couldn't but ask it,For in her hand she carried a Broom."Old Woman, old Woman, old Woman," quoth I,"0 whither, O whither, O whither so high ?"To brush the Cobwebs off the Sky."Shall I go with thee ?" "Aye, by-and-by."
There was a little pretty lad,And he lived by himself;And all the meat he gotHle put upon a shelf.The rats and the miceDid lead him such a life,That he went to IrelandTo get himself a wife.The lanes they were so broad,The fields they were so narrow,He couldn't get her homeWithout a wheel-barrow.Little Tee Wee,He went to seaIn an open boat,And when afloat,The little boat bended,And my story's ended.Clap hands! clap hands!Till father comes home;For father's got money,But mother's got none.The wheel-barrow broke, You shall have an apple,My wife she got a kick, You shall have a plum,The deuce take the wheel-barrow You shall have a rattle-basket,That spared my wife's neck. When your dad comes home.
