Little Robin Redbreast sat upon a tree;
Up went a Pussy-cat, and down went he ;
Down came the Pussy-cat, away Robin ran ;
Says little Robin Redbreast, " Catch me if you can."
Little Robin Redbreast jumped upon the wall;
Pussy-cat jumped after him, and got a nice fall;
Little Robin chirped and sang, and what did Pussy say?
Pussy-cat said, " Mew, mew!" and Robin flew away.
Bonny lass! bonny lass ! will you be mine ?
You shall neither wash dishes, nor serve the wine;
But sit on a cushion, and sew up a seam ;
And you shall have strawberries, sugar, and cream.
