MOTHER GOOSE S MELODIES.                              67
Wife, wife! bring me brandy in a spoon;
Fol de rol, de rol, de rol, de ri do,
'For our old sow has fall'n down in a swoon
ping heigh ho! the car­rion crow,
Fol de rol, de rol, de rol, de ri do.
A PRETTY little girl in a round-eared cap
I met in the streets t'other day; She gave me such a thump, That my heart it went bump;
I thought I should have fainted awayl
I thought I should have fainted away!
IN" a marble as white as milk, Lined with skin as soft as silk; Within a fountain crystal clear, A golden apple doth appear. No doors there are to this strong-hold, Yet things break in and steal the gold.
