THERE was a little boy and a little girl

Lived in an alley;
Says the little boy to the little girl,

“Shall I, oh! shall I?”

Says the little girl to the little boy,

“What shall we do?”.
Says the little boy to the little girl,

“I will kiss you."

I HEN I was a bachelor I lived by myself,

V And all the meat I got I put upon a shelf ; The rats and the mice did lead me such a life That I went to London to get myself a wife.

The streets were so broad and the lanes were so

narrow, I could not get my wife home without a wheel

barrow; The wheelbarrow broke, my wife got a fall, Down tumbled wheelbarrow, little wife, and all,

DLUE eye beauty,
D Grey eye greedy,
Black eye blackie,
Brown eye brownie.

AS Tommy Snooks and Bessy Brooks N Were walking out one Sunday, Says Tommy Snooks to Bessy Brooks,

“To-morrow will be Monday.”

O H, madam, I will give you the keys of

U Canterbury,
To set all the bells ringing when we shall be

merry,
If you will but walk abroad with me,
If you will but walk with me.

Sir, I'll not accept of the keys of Canterbury,
To set all the bells ringing when we shall be

merry;
Neither will I walk abroad with thee,
Neither will I talk with thee!

Oh, madam, I will give you a fine carved comb, To comb out your ringlets when I am from

home, If you will but walk with me, &c. Sir, I'll not accept, &c.

Oh, madam, I will give you a pair of shoes of

cork, One made in London, the other made in York, If you will but walk with me, &c. Şir, I'll not accept, &c.

Madam, I will give you a sweet silver bell,
To ring up your maidens when you are not well,
If you will but walk with me, &c.
Sir, I'll not accept, &c.

Oh, my man John, what can the matter be?
I love the lady and the lady loves not me!
Neither will she walk abroad with me,
Neither will she talk with me.

Oh, master dear, do not despair,
The lady she shall be, shall be your only dear;
And she will walk and talk with thee,
And she will walk with thee!

Oh, madam, I will give you the keys of my chest,
To count my gold and silver when I am gone to rest,
If you will but walk abroad with me,
If you will but talk with me.

Oh, sir, I will accept of the keys of your chest,
To count your gold and silver when you are gone

to rest,
And I will walk abroad with thee,
And I will talk with thee!
