Bobby Shaftoe's gone to sea,
Silver buckles on his knee;
He'll come back and marry me,

Pretty Bobby Shaftoe.

Combing down his yellow hair,
He's my love forevermore,

Pretty Bobby Shaftoe.

Taffy was a Welchman. Taffy was a thief,
Taffy came to my house and stole a piece of beef;

I went to Taffy's house, Taffy was in bed,
I took the marrow-bone, and beat about his head.

Boys and girls, come ou to play,
The moon does shine as br.ght as day,

And meet your playfellows in the street ; Come with a whoop, and come with a call, And come with a good will, or not at all.

A halfpenny roll will serve us all.

And we'll have pudding in half an hour.

Ride a cock horse to Banbury-cross

To see what Tommy can buy ;
A penny white loaf, a penny white cake,

And a two penny apple pie.




Ride a cock horse to Shrewsbury-cross,
To buy little Johnny a galloping horse :
It trots behind and it ambles before,
And Johnny shall ride till he can ride no more.

Jemmy Jed went into a shed,
And made of a ted of straw his bed ;
An owl came out and flew about,
And Jemmy Jed up stakes and fled.
Wan't Jemmy Jed a staring fool,
Born in the wouds to be scar'd by an owl?

How many miles to Babylon ?
Threescore miles and ten.
Can I get there by candle-light?
Yes, and back again.
