GIRLS and boys, come ouL to play,
The moon doth shine as bright as day,
Leave your supper, and leave your sleep,
And meet your play-fellows in the street;
Come with a whoop, and come with a call,
And come with a good will, or not at all.
Up the ladder and down the wall,
A half-penny roll will serve us all;
You find milk and I'll find flour,
And we'll have pudding in half an hour.

His physician said this,
"To a leg, sir, of mutton you may go."

And that's the way the noise begun.

And his bullets were made of lead, lead, lead.

And saw a little duck,
And he shot it through the head, head, head.

To his old wife Joan,
And bid her a fire to make, make, make;
To roast the little duck,
He-had shot in the brook,
And he'd go and fetch her the drake, drake, drake.

Who would not say his prayers; ,
I took him by the left leg,
And threw him down stairs,
OLD Mother Hubbard went to the cupboard,
To get her poor dog a bone;
When she came there, the cupboard was bnae,
And so the poor dog got none.
