I Saw Esau

I saw Esau sitting on a seesaw,

I saw Esau kissing Kate,

The fact is we all three saw,

For I saw him,

And he saw me,

And she saw I saw Esau.

You Ride Behind

You ride behind and I’ll ride before,
And trot, trot away to Baltimore.

You shall take bread, and I will take honey,
And both of us carry a purse full of money.

When Good King Arthur Ruled His Land

When good King Arthur ruled his land

He was a goodly king.

He stole three pecks of barley meal

To make a bag-pudding.

A bag-pudding the king did make,

And stuff’d it well with plums,

And in it put great lumps of fat,

As big as my two thumbs.

The king and queen did eat thereof,

And noblemen beside;

And what they could not eat that night,

The queen next morning fried.

Vintery Mintery

Vintery, mintery, cutery, corn,

Apple seed and apple thorn,

Wire, briar, limber lock,

Three geese in a flock.

One flew east,

And one flew west,

And one flew over,

The cuckoo’s nest.

Up In The Green Orchard

Up in the green orchard,

There is a green tree.

The finest of pippins,

That you may see.

The apples are ripe,

And ready to fall,

And Robin and Richard,

Shall gather them all.

Richard and Robin

Richard and Robin were two pretty men;

They laid abed till the clock struck ten;

Robin starts up and looks at the sky,

Oh ho! Brother Richard, the sun’s very high,

Do you go before with the bottle and bag,

And I’ll follow after on little Jack Nag.

Quick, Quick

Quick! quick!
The cat’s been sick.

Where? where?
Under the chair.

Hasten! hasten!
Fetch the basin.

Alack! alack!
It is too late,
The carpet’s in
An awful state.

No! no!
It’s all in vain,
For she has licked it
Up again.
