Jemmy Jed went into a shed,
How many miles to Babylon ?
A little girl said,
Good morning, Papa!
For good morning, mamma!
Trip upon trenchers,
And dance upon dishes,
She bid me tread lightly,
And come again quickly, For fear the young men would play me some jest.
Yet didn't you see, yet didn't you see,
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.
There was an old man in a velvet coat,.' He kiss'd a maid and gave her a groat; The groat was crack'd and would not go. Ah, old man, do you serve me so?

Up in the green orchard there is a green tree,
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.
