MONEY AND THE MARE
"Lend me thy mare to ride a mile."
"She is lamed, leaping over a stile."
"Alack! and I must keep the fair
I'll give thee money for thy mare."
"Oh, oh! say you so?
Money will make the mare to go!"
Up went Pussy-Cat, down went he,
Down came Pussy-Cat, away Robin ran,
Says little Robin Redbreast: "Catch me if you can!
Little Robin Redbreast jumped upon a spade,
Pussy-Cat jumped after him, and then he was afraid.
Little Robin chirped and sang, and what did Pussy say
Pussy-Cat said: "Mew, mew, mew," and Robin flew away.
