50                           MOTHER GOOSE'S MELODIES.
ROBIN the Bobbin the
big-bellied Ben, He ate more meat than
fourscore men; He ate a cow, he ate a
calf, He ate a butcher and a
half; He ate a church, he ate
a steeple, He ate the priest and
all the people!
Three wise men of Gotham Went to sea in a bowl And if the bowl had been stronger My song had been longer.
BOBBY SHAFTOE'Sgone to sea, Silver buckles orThitTknee; He'll come back and marry me, Pretty Bobby Shaftoe-
Bobby Shaftoe's fat and fair, Combing down his yellow hair, He's my love forevermore,
Pretty Bobby Shaftoe.
