Cold and raw the north wind does blow,
Bleak in the morning early;
All the hills are covered with snow,
And winter's now come fairly.
Some more nursery rhymes to enjoy
Call John the boatman,
Call, call again,
For loud flows the river
And fast falls the rain.
John is a good man, and sleeps very sound;
His oars are at rest, and his boat is aground.
Fast flows the river so rapid and deep;
The louder you call him the sounder he'll sleep.
