Seite 23 - When shepherds pipe on oaten straws, And merry larks are ploughmen's clocks, When turtles tread, and rooks, and daws, And maidens bleach their summer smocks, The cuckoo then, on every tree, Mocks married men; for thus sings he, Cuckoo; Cuckoo, cuckoo: O word of fear, Unpleasing to a married ear!
Seite 14 - THERE WAS A LITTLE MAN THEEE was a little man and he had a little gun, And his bullets were made of lead, lead, lead ; He went to the brook, and saw a little duck, And shot it through the head, head, head.

Some keep the Sabbath in surplice; I just wear my wings, And instead of tolling the bell for church, Our little sexton sings. God preaches, - a noted clergyman, And the sermon is never long; So instead of getting to heaven at last, I'm going all along!
