Robert Barns, fellow fine,
Can you shoe this horse of mine,
So that I may cut a shine ?

Yes, good sir, and that I can,

As well as any other man;
There a nail, and here a prod,
And now, good sir, your horse is shod.

Hey ding a ding, ding, I heard a bird sing, The parliament soldiers are gone to the king.

2EOMORSORGERNE

SO W...

Pibroch of Donnel Dhu,

Pibroch of Donnel, Wake thy voice anew,

Summon Clan-Connel. Come away, come away,

Hark to the summons, Come in your war array,

Gentles and commons !

WAY

Come as the winds come,

When forests are rended,
Come as the waves come,

When navies are stranded.
Faster come, faster come, faster and faster,

Chief, vassal, page and groom,

Tenart and master!

Fast they come, fast they come,

See how they gather! Wide waves the eagle plume blended with heather.

Cast your plaids, draw your blades,

Forward each nian set!
Pibroch of Donnel Dhu, now for the onset!

Jack Sprat could eat no fat;

His wife could eat no lean ; . So 'twixt them both they cleared the cloth,

And lick'd the platter clean.

There was a little boy went into a barn,

And lay down on some hay;
A calf came out and smelt about,

And the little boy ran away.

The sow came in with the saddle,
The little pig rock'd the cradle,
The dish jump'd up on the table

To see the pot swallow the ladle. The spit that stood behind the door Threw the pudding-stick on the floor. Odsplut! said the gridiron,

Can't you agree ?
I'm the head constable,

. Bring them to me.

Little Tommy Tucker,

Sing for your supper :
What shall I sing ?

White bread and butter,
How shall I cut it

Without any knife?
How shall I marry

Without any wife?

I would, if I could ; if I couldn't, how could I?
I couldn't without I could, could I?
Could you without you could, could ye? could ye? could ye? ||
Yon couldn't without you could, could ye?

Oh that I were where I would be !

Then should I be where I am not ;
But where I am, there I must be,

And where I would be I can not.
