Woman Who Lived Under a Hill
There was an old woman
Lived under a hill,
And if she's not gone
She lives there still.

The Meadow Bout Fields
I have been to the meadow-bout fields,
And I have been to the gorses;
And I have been to the meadow-bout fields,
To seek my master's horses.
And I got wet, and very very wet,
And I got wet and weary,
And I was wet, and very very wet
When I came home to Mary!
