MOTHER GOOSE'S MELODIES.
9
CROSS patch, Draw the latch,
Sit by the fire and spin; Take a cup, And drink it up,
Then call your neighbors in.
IN" fir tar is, In oak none is. In mud eel is, In clay none is, Goat eat ivy, Mare eat oats.
WHAT care I how black I be, Twenty pounds will marry me; If twenty won't, forty shall, I am my mother's bouncing girl
THE man in the moon came down too sooo To inquire the way to Norridge;
The man in the south, he burnt his mouth With eating cold plum-porridge.
