ONCE I SAW A LITTLE BIRD.

ONCE I saw a little bird

Come hop, hop, hop;
So I cried, “Little bird,

Will you stop, stop, stop?"
And was going to the window,

To say, “How do you do ?”
When he shook his little tail,

And far away he flew.

PILLYCOCK. PILLYCOCK, Pillycock, sat on a hill, If he's not gone, he sits there still.

ITTLE Jenny Wren fell sick upon a time,
When in came Robin Redbreast and

brought her sops and wine ;
Eat, Jenny; drink, Jenny : all shall be

thine!" Then Jenny she got better, and stood

upon her feet, And said to little Robin, “I love you not a bit!" Then Robin he was angry, and flew upon a twig, “ Hoot upon thee, fie upon thee, ungrateful chit !"

THE ROBIN AND THE WREN.

THE Robin Redbreast and the Wren
Cast out about the porridge pan;
But ere the Robin got a spoon,
The Wren she had them all done.

THREE blind mice—see how they run !
They all ran after the farmer's wife,
Who cut off their tails with a carving knife;
Did ever you hear such a thing in your life?

Three blind mice.

A SHORT SONG.

THERE was an old crow

Sat upon a clod; There's an end of my song

That's odd!

HUSH-A-BYE, BABY. HUSH-A-BYE, baby, on a tree-top; When the wind blows, the cradle will rock; When the wind ceases, the cradle will fall, And down will come baby and cradle and all.

OH, DEAR! WHAT CAN THE MATTER BE?

OH, dear! what can the matter be ?
Dear, dear! what can the matter be?
Oh, dear! what can the matter be?

Johnny's so long at the fair.
He promised he'd bring me a basket of posies,
A garland of lilies, a garland of roses,
A little straw hat to set off the blue ribbons,
That tie up my bonny brown hair.

Oh, dear, &c.

caes TRIP UPON TRENCHERS. TRIP upon trenchers, and dance upon dishes,

My mother sent me for some barm, some barm; She bade me tread lightly, and come again quickly,

For fear the young men should do me some harm. Yet didn't you see, yet didn't you see, What naughty tricks they put upon me?

They broke my pitcher,

And spilt the water,
And huffed my mother,

And chid her daughter,
And kissed my sister instead of me.
