2. Little Bo-Peep fell fast asleep, 4. It happened one day as Bo-Peep did stray
SAnd dreamt she heard them bleating; Into a meadow hard by,
But when she awoke, she found it a joke, There she espied their tails side by side,
For they were still a-fleeting. All hung on a tree to dry.

3. Then up she took her little crook, 5. She heaved a sigh and wiped her eye,
Determined for to find them, Then went o'er hill and dale,
She found them indeed, but it made her And tried what she could, as a shep-
heart bleed herdess should,
For they'd left their tails behind them. To tack to each sheep its tail.

was a gal-lant bird, He doffed his cap to Jenny Wren, Requesting to be heard.
like a pea-cock gay, So if you'll have me, Jenny dear, Let us appoint the day."



3. Jenny blushed behind her fan 4. Robin Redbreast got up early,
And thus declared her mind- All at the break of day,
So let it be to-morrow, Rob, And flew to Jenny Wren's house
I'll take your offer kind; And sang a roundelay;
Cherry pie is very good, He sang of Robin Redbreast,
Ni "And so is currant wine; And pretty Jenny Wren,
"But I will wear my plain brown gown, And when he came unto the end,
"And never dress too fine." He then began again.
