The queen of hearts,
She made some tarts, All on a summer's day;
The knave of hearts
He stole those tarts, And with them ran away:
The king of hearts
Call'd for those tarts, And beat the knave full sore,
The knave of hearts
Brought back those tarts, And said he'd ne'er steal more.
The king of spades
He kiss'd the maids, Which vex'd the queen full sore;
The que'en of spades
She beat those maids And turn'd them out of door;
The knave of spades
Grieved for those jades, And did for them implore;
The queen so gent,
She did relent, And vow'd she'd ne'er strike more.
