CHEN good King Arthur ruled this land
He was a goodly king-
To make a bag pudding.
A bag pudding the Queen did make,
And stuffed it well with plums, And in it put great lumps of fat
As big as my two thumbs.
The King and Queen did eat thereof,
And noblemen beside: And what they could not eat that night,
The Queen next morning fried.
WORRYING OLD WOMAN IN SURREY. U
THE OLD WOMAN WHO WAS TOSSED
IN A BLANKET.
THERE was an old woman was tossed in a blanket,
Seventeen times as high as the moon;
For under her arm she carried a broom.
"Whither, ah whither, ah whither so high?" “To sweep the cobwebs from the sky,
And I'll be with you by-and-by.”
THE WORRYING OLD WOMAN IN
THERE was an old woman in Surrey,
Called her husband "a fool,"
Drove her children to school,
THE SURPRISING OLD WOMAN.
THERE was an old woman, and, what do you think? She lived upon nothing but victuals and drink; And tho'victuals and drink were the chief of her diet, This plaguy old woman would never be quiet.
She went to the baker's, to buy her some bread,
THERE was an old woman called Nothing-at-All,
HERE were three jovial Welshmen,
As I have heard them say,
Upon St. David's Day.
All the day they hunted,
A-sailing with the wind.
One said it was a ship,
The other, he said “Nay;"
And the chimney blown away.
