52.—THE FOOLISH BOY.
1 My father died and I cannot tell how, He left me six horses to follow the plough.
With a wing-wang-waddle, O! Jack sold his saddle O!
Blossy boys, bubble O ! under the broom.
2   I sold my six horses and bought me a cow, I'd fain have a fortune, but didn't know how.
With a wing-wang-waddle, O ! &c.
3   I sold my cow and bought me a calf, I'd fain have a fortune, but I lost a half.
With a wing-wang-waddle, O ! &c.
4   I sold my calf and I bought me a cat ; The pretty thing by my chimney sat.
With a wing-wang-waddle, O ! &c.
5   I sold my cat and I bought me a mouse ;
He fired his tail and he burnt down my house. With a wing-wang-waddle, O !
6  I have nothing to buy, and I've nothing to sell, And how I shall live, I am sure I cannot tell.
With a wing-wang-waddle, O ! &c.
