78                              MOTHER GOOSE'S MELODIES.
W HEN T was a little boy, my mother kept me in, Now I am a great boy, and fit to serve the
king;                   ,                       ,
I can handle a musket, I can smoke a pipe,
I can kiss a pretty girl at ten o'clock at night.
P ETER, Peter, pumpkin-eater, Had a wife and couldn't keep her ; He put her in a pumpkin-shell, And then he kept her very well. Peter, Peter, pumpkin-eater, Had another and didn't love her: Peter learned to read and spell, And then he loved her very well.
