LANDY SPANDY, Jack-a-dandy,
1 Loved plum-cake and sugar-candy;
He bought some at a grocer's shop,
And out he came, hop, hop, hop.

Had spoiled his nice new rattle,

Just then flew by a monstrous crow

As big as a tar-barrel,
Which frightened both the heroes so

They quite forgot their quarrel,

D UB a dub dui,
I! Three men in a tub:
And who do you think they be!
The butcher, the baker,
The candlestick-maker;
Turn 'em out, knaves all three !

Thyme and sweet marjoram,
Hyssop and rue.

Will you be mine or no, no-a-nc., —

Simon, pray leave off your suit,
For of your courting you'll reap no fruit.
I would rather give a crown
Than be married to a clown;

Go for a booby, go, no-a-nu,- ..
Go, for a booby, go,
