Robin the Bobbin, the big-bellied Ben,
He eat more meat than fourscore men;

When good King Arthur ruled this land,

He was a goodly king;
He bought a peck of barley-meal,

And noblemen beside; And what they could not eat that night,

The queen next morning fried.


It's once I courted as pretty a lass,

As ever your eyes did see;

But now she's come to such a pass,

And she tumbled me into the hog-tub,

And I'll never go there any more.

And over the water to Charley.
Charley loves good ale and wine,
And Charley loves good brandy,
And Charley loves a pretty girl,
As sweet as sugar-candy.

Had a wife of silver.

He took a stick and broke her back,

And sold her to the miller;

The miller wouldn't have her,

So he threw her in the river.
