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.

Born in the woods 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.

A little girl said,
As she sprang like a lark
From her low trundle bed.

Good morning, Papa!
Oh give me one kiss,

Trip upon trenchers,

And dance upon dishes,
My mother sent me for yeast, some yeast,

She bid me tread lightly,

And come again quickly, For fear the young men would play me some jest.

What naughty tricks they put upon me? They broke my pitcher, and spilt my water, And huffd my mother, and chid her daughter,

And kissed my sister instead of me.

Went to sea in a bowl,
And if the bowl had been stronger
My song had been longer.

Up in the green orchard there is a green tree,
The finest of pippins that ever you see;
The apples are ripe, and ready to fall,
And Reuben and Robin shall gather them all.

Harry cum Parry, when will you marry ?

When apples and pears are ripe. I'll come to your wedding without any bidding,

And stay with the bride all night.
