A Book of Nursery Songs and Rhymes/Nursery Songs/LXV. GIRLS AND BOYS COME OUT TO PLAY

For other versions of this work, see Girls and Boys Come Out To Play.

Girls and boys come out to play,
The moon doth shine as bright as day;
Leave your supper and leave your sleep,
And come to your playfellows in the street.
Come with a whoop, come with a call,
Come with a good will or not at all.
Up the ladder and down the wall,
A penny loaf it will serve us all.
You find milk, and I'll find flour,
And we'll have a pudding in half an hour.
