Young Betty she took an umbrella,
Down in the meadows so green.
Goosey Gander came up just to tell her,
To tell her,
That HE owned the meadows so green.
But Betty she spread her umbrella,
Till nothing of her could be seen;
And the Goose, he could never compel her,
To run from those meadows so geen.

Little Robin Redbreast
sat upon a hurdle,
With a pair of speckled legs
and a green girdle.
