L ITTLE Bo-peep has lost her sheep, And can't tell where to find them; Leave them alone, and they'll come home, And bring their tails behind them.
Little Bo-peep fell fast asleep, And dreamt she heard them bleating; But when she awoke, she found it a joke, For they still were all fleeting.
Then she took up her little crook, Determined for to find them; She found them indeed, but it made her heart bleed Forthey'd left all their tails behind 'em.
L ITTLE boy blue, come blow me your horn,
The sheep's in the mea­dow, the cow's in the corn.
Where is the little boy, minding the sheep ?
Under the haycock fast asleep!
