I Love Sixpence.

71

I SAW THREE SHIPS COME SAILING BY.

I SAW three ships come sailing by,

Sailing by, sailing by ;
I saw three ships come sailing by,

On New Year's Day in the morning.
And what do you think was in them then,

In them then, in them then?
And what do you think was in them then,

On New Year's Day in the morning ?
Three pretty girls were in them then,

In them then, in them then;
Three pretty girls were in them then,

On New Year's Day in the morning.
And one could whistle, and one could sing,

The other could play the violin;
Such joy there was at my wedding,

On New Year's Day in the morning.

I LOVE SIXPENCE.
I LOVE sixpence, pretty little sixpence,

I love sixpence better than my life;
I spent a penny of it, I spent another,
And took fourpence home to my wife.

E

I love fourpence, pretty little fourpence,

I love fourpence better than my life; I spent a penny of it, I spent another,

And I took twopence home to my wife. I love twopence, pretty little twopence,

I love twopence better than my life; I spent a penny of it, I spent another,

And I took nothing home to my wife. I love nothing, pretty little nothing,

What will nothing buy for my wife ? I have nothing, I spend nothing,

I love nothing better than my wife.

TOM THUMB, the piper's son,
Stole a pig, and away

did

run, The pig was ate, and Tom was beat, Till he ran crying down the street.

WHEN A MAN MARRIES.

NEEDLES and pins, needles and pins, When a man marries, his trouble begins.

THE SONG OF THE PIPER AND THE

FIDDLER'S WIFE.

WE'RE all dry with drinking on't,
We're all dry with drinking on't;
The piper kissed the fiddler's wife,
And I can't sleep for thinking on't.
