PRETTY PEGGY.

It was down by the banks of the Ivy '0-
It was down by the banks of the Ivy 'O,
Our Captain fell in love with a lady like a dove,
And they called her name Pretty Peggy 'O.

"Now will you marry me Pretty Peggy 'O;
In a carriage you shall ride, like a lady in her pride,
With the hautboys playing before you '0:'

"My mother won't consent noble Captain 'O;
She never would consent, and I always should repent,
If I should ever disobey my mammy 'O."

"What would your mother say, Pretty Peggy 'O-
What would your mother think, if she heard the guineas chink,
And the hautboys playing before you 'O?"

Out spake his brother John so angry '0,
Saying"this will never do, there are ladies enou',
And many pretty girls on the Ivy '0"

Came tripping down the stair Pretty Peggy 'O-
Came tripping down the stair, combing out her yellow hair,
For to take a last farewell of her deary 'O.

The troops were marching from Ivy 'O.
Our Captain he fell sick, and his pulse it beat so quick,
And 'twas all for the love of Pretty Peggy 'O.

The very next town they marched through,
The drums they beat so gloomy 'O;
Our noble Captain died, nor left his like alive,
And 'twas all for the love of Pretty Peggy 'O.

The news soon reached to the Ivy 'O;
The mother did relent and the brother did repent,
For it soon put an end to Pretty Peggy 'O.

PRAY PAPA, PRAY PAPA.

" Pray papa, pray papa, stay a little longer;
Pray papa, pray papa, do not go so soon."

Come, come, my dear, what nonsense!
You've danced enough, in conscience.
Then send that powdered fellow in,
And bid him bring your pelerine;"
" Pray papa, pray papa, stay a little longer;
Pray papa, pray papa, do not go so soon."

The nights are very cold ones,
The horses, too, are old ones,
The coachman, he is drunken,
You know the ditch we sunk in."

" Pray papa, pray papa, stay a little longer;
Pray papa, pray papa, do not go so soon."

Your grandpapa is gouty,
And cannot do without 'ye;
He takes the eau medicinale,
I'm sure he will be missing all."

" Pray papa, pray papa, stay a little longer;
Pray papa, pray papa, do not go so soon."

"You know I gave you warning,
You could not stay till morning.
Then bid your partners all good-night,
We shan't be home before daylight."

But you must milk the tiny cow And you must watch the bracket hen
For fear she should go dry; Lest she should lay astray;
And you must feed the little pigs And you must wind the reel of yarn
That are within the sty. That I spun yesterday."








43



The old women took the staff in her hand
And went to drive the plough;
The old man took the pail in his hand
And went to milk the cow.

But Tiny hinched, and Tiny flinched,
And Tiny cocked her nose;
And Tiny hit the old man such a kick
That the blood ran down to his hose.

'Twas "hey my good cow!" and "ho my good cow !,
And "now my good cow, stand still.
If ever I milk this cow again
'Twill be against my will."

But Tiny hinched, and Tiny flinched,
And Tiny cocked her nose;
And Tiny hit the old man such a kick
That the blood ran down fo his hose.

And when he'd milked the Tiny cow
For fear she should go dry,
Why then he fed the little pigs
That were within the sty.

And then he watched the bracket hen
Lest she should lay astray;
But he forgot the reel of yarn
His wife spun yesterday.

He swore by all the stars in heaven
And all the leaves on the tree,
That his wife could do more work in a day
Than he could do in three.

He swore by all the leaves on the tree
And all the stars in heaven,
That his wife could do more work in a.day
Than he could do in seven.

ROBIN.
And now my dear Robin, since thou art my son,
I'll give you good counsel in life :
Go haste thee away and make no delay,
And I'll warrant you'll get you a wife-
You will;
Yes, you will, and so you will;
I'll warrant you'll get you a wife-you will.
"Go dress yourself up in your holiday clothes,
And kiss every girl that you meet:
Some will look shy and take it awry,
And others will call you the sweet-
They will;
Yes, they will, and so they will;
The others will call you the sweet-they will.
So Robin dressed up in his holiday clothes,
And took leave of his mother so kind;
With a tear in his eye he bade her good bye,
He was sorry to leave her behind-
He was;
Yes, he was, and so he was;
He was sorry to leave her behind-he was.
The first girl he met along the highway,
Was the farmer's fair daughter, called Grace;
But before he had said many words to her
She hit him a slap in the face-
She did ;
Yes, she did, and so she did;
She hit him a slap in the face-she did.
"You impudent girl, you saucy jade,
To hit such a gallant as I;
In my holiday clothes I look like a rose,
You may live an old maid till you die-
You may;
Yes, you may, and so you may;
You maylive an old maid till you die-you may.'
As Robin -was going along the highway,
Not thinking of scorn or of mocks,
He happened by chance to kiss the priest's wife,
And got himself fast in the stocks-
He did;
Yes, he did, and so he did;
He got himself fast in the stocks-he did.
"If this is the way I'm to get me a wife,
I'll never look out for another;
I'd rather live single all the days of my life,
So I will go home to my mother-
I will;
Yes, I will, and so I will;
I will go home to my mother-I will"'
