Jack rode to his mother, The news for to tell, She call'd him a good boy, And said it was well.
Jack sold his gold egg To a rogue of a Jew, Who cheated him out of The half of his due.
Then Jack went a courting A lady so gay, As fair as the lily, And sweet as the May.
The old Mother Goose That instant came in, And turned her sou Jack Into famed Harlequin.
She then touched her wand, Touch'd the lady so fine, And turn'd her at once Into sweet Columbine.
Jack's mother came in, And caught the goose soon, And mounting its back Flew up to the moon.
