The Zankiwank

O my! Here’s such a jolly spree!
Sally Water’s coming with Jack Sheppard into tea,
She’s bringing Baby Bunting with old Mother Hubbard’s Dog,
And little Jacky Horner with the Roly Poly Frog.
O my! it fills my heart with glee!
The House that Jack is building isn’t big enough for me!

In time these two got married and they took a little house,
And soon a tiny baby came, no bigger than a mouse;
But still the little husband played at skipping rope and top
With all the little girls and boys, and drank their ginger-pop.

O my! this funny little Sam
Thought the world was bread and cheese, and all the trees were jam;
