Thirty Days hath September
Thirty days hath September,
April, June and November;
February has twenty eight alone
All the rest have thirty-one
Except in Leap Year, that's the time
When February's Days are twenty-nine
Some more nursery rhymes to enjoy
Lawn as white as driven snow;
Cy-press black as e'er was crow,
Gloves as sweet as damask roses,
Masks for faces and for noses.
Bugle, bracelet, necklace, amber,
Perfume for a lady's chamber,
Golden quoifs and stomachers,
For my lads to give their dears.
Come buy, come buy,
Come buy, or else, or else your lasses cry,
Come buy, come buy, come buy, come buy!
