Robin and Richard were two pretty men; They laid in bed till the clock struck ten; Then up starts Robin and looks at the sky, Oh I brother Richard, the sun's very high :
The bull's in the ham threshing the corn, The cock's on the dunghill blowing his horn, The cat's at the fire, frying of fish, The dog's in the pantry, breaking his dish.
Hogs in the garden, catch 'em, Towser, Cowa in the corn-field, run boys, run. Cats in the cream-pot, run girls, run girls, Fire on the mountains, run boys, run.
