THERE was an old woman, as I've heard tell,
1 She went to market her eggs for to sell ; She went to market all on a market-day, And she fell asleep on the king's highway.
There came by a pedlar whose name was Stout;
When this little woman first did wake,
“But if it be I, as I do hope it be,
Home went the little woman all in the dark;
LD woman, old woman, shall we go a shearing?" “Speak a little louder, sir, I am very thick of
hearing." “Old woman, old woman, shall I love you dearly?” “Thank you, kind sir, I hear you very clearly."
THERE was an old woman toss'd up in a 1 basket
Nineteen times as high as the moon; Where she was going I couldn't but ask it,
For in her hand she carried a broom.
“Old woman, old woman, old woman,” quoth I,
“O whither, O whither, O whither, so high?” “To brush the cobwebs off the sky!”
“Shall I go with thee?” “Ay, by-and-by."
A LITTLE old man and I fell out; N “How shall we bring this matter about ?" “Bring it about as well as you can ; Get you gone, you little old man !”
THERE was an old woman of Leeds .
Who spent all her time in good deeds:
Till her fingers were sore,
THERE was an old woman
I Lived under a hill;
And sent it to mill.
The miller declar'd
By the point of his knife,
Of a mouse in his life.
THERE was an old woman who lived in a shoe; T She had so many children she didn't know what
. to do; She gave them some broth without any bread; She whipped them all soundly and put them to bed.
