RIDE away, ride away, Johnny shall ride,

1 And he shall have pussy-cat tied to one side, · And he shall have little dog tied to the other, And Johnny shall ride to see his grandmother.

THE Queen of Hearts,

She made some tarts,

All on a summer's day;
The Knave of Hearts,
He stole those tarts,

And took them clean away.
The King of Hearts
Called for the tarts,

And beat the Knave full sore;
The Knave of Hearts
Brought back the tarts,

And vowed he'd steal no more.

1 Who was not very young, nor yet very old , Now this little woman her living got, By selling codlins, hot, hot, hot.

N AME, get up and bake your pies,

U Bake your pies, bake your pies ;
Dame, get up and bake your pies
On Christmas Day in the morning.

Dame, what makes your maidens lie,
Maidens lie, maidens lie;
Dame, what makes your maidens lie
On Christmas Day in the morning ?

Dame, what makes your ducks to die,
Ducks to die, ducks to die;
Dame, what makes your ducks to die
On Christmas Day in the morning?

Their wings are cut and they cannot fly,
Cannot fly, cannot fly;
Their wings are cut and they cannot fly
On Christmas Day in the morning.

NOLD and raw the north wind doth blow, u Bleak in a morning early; All the hills are covered with snow,

And winter's now come fairly.

And what do you think was in them then,

Was in them then, was 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,

Were in them then, were 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,

And one could play on the violin-
Such joy there was at my wedding,

On New Year's day in the morning.

o'clock?”

THEN Little Fred was called to bed VV He always acted right; He kissed Mamma, and then Papa,

And wished them all good night.

He made no noise, like naughty boys

But gently upstairs
Directly went, when he was sent,

And always said his prayers
