TOM, THE PIPER'S SON.


The Baldwin Library i
University


X.A~f
h-() ~






TOM he was a Piper's son,
He learned to play when he was young;
But the only tune that he could play,
Was "Over the hills and far away."

Now, Tom with his pipe made such a noise,
That he pleased both the girls and boys,
And they all stopped to hear him play
".Over the hills arid far away."

.Tom with his. pipe did play with such skill,
That: those who herd him could never stand still;
Whenever they heard him they began to dance--'
Even pigs on .their hind legs. would after him pIrance,

He met old Dame Trot with a basket of eggs,-
He used his pipe and she used her legs;
She danced about.till the eggs were all broke;
She began to fret, but he laughed at the joke.

He saw a cross fellow was beating an ass,
Heavy laden with pots, pans, dishes and glass;
He took out his pipe and played them a tune,,
And the Jackass's load was lightened full soon.


DOCTOR FOSTER went
.. to Gloster
In a shower of rain;
He stepped in a puddle up to
his middle,
And never went there
again.










A FROG he would a-wooing go,
Whether his mother would let him or no.
So off he set with his opera-hat,
And on the road he met, with a Rat.
"Pray, Mr. Rat, will you go with, me,
Kind Mrs, Mousey for to see?"
They soon arrived at Mousey's hall, .
And gave a lbud .knock, and gave aloud call.
"Pray, Mris. Mouse, are you within ?"
"Yes, kind sirs, and sitting to spin."
" Pray, Mrs.: Mouse, now give us some beer,
For Froggy and I are fond of good cheer."
" Pray, iMr. Frog, will you give us a song?
But let it be something that's not very long."
" Indeed, Mrs. Mouse, I shall have to say No;
A cold has mad, me as hoarse as a crow..'
"Since you have caught cold, Mr. Frog," "she said,
" I'll sing you a.song that I have just made.".
But while they were making a merry din,
A Cat and her kittens came tumbling in.
The Cat she seized the Rat by the crown,
The kittens they pulled the little Mouse down.
This put Mr. Frog in a terrible fright,
So he took up his hat, and he wished them good-night
As Froggy was crossing a silvery brook,
A lilywhite Duck came and gobbled him up.
So this was an end of one, two, three-
The Rat, the Mouse, and little Frog-et.

OLD woman, old woman, shall we go a-shearing ?
Speak a little louder, sir, I'm very thick o-hearing.
Old woman, old woman, shall I kiss you dearly ?
Thank you, kind sir, I hear you very clearly.

B ARBER, barber, shave a pig,
How many hairs will make a wig:?
: Four-and-twenty-that's enough ;" :
Give the poor barber a pinch of snuff.

7 A DILLAR, a dollar,
A ten o'clock scholar;
What makes you come so soon ?
j You used to come at ten o'clock,
But now you .ome at"noon.:

Go to bed Tom, go to bed TorM,
Merry or sober, go t6 bed Tom.,

OLD KING COLE was a merry old soul,
'-' And a merry old soul was he; '
He called for his pipe,.
And he called for his bowl,: .
And he called for, his fiddlers three..

Every fiddler, he had a fine fiddle, ,....
And a very fine fiddle had he;
"Twee t-eedle dee, tweedle dee," said the fiddles.
Oh, there's none so rare,
They can compare,
With King Cole and his fiddlers three I
