Ballads and Songs
2.  There was a little limb, the prettiest little limb, The sweetest little limb you ever did see.
The limb in the tree, the tree in the ground,
And the green grass growing all around, all around,
And the green grass growing all around.
3.  There was a little branch, the prettiest little branch, The sweetest little branch you ever did see.
The branch in the limb, the limb in the tree,
the tree in the ground, And the green grass growing all around, all around, And the green grass growing all around.
4.  There was a little twig, the prettiest little twig, The sweetest litde twig you ever did see.
The twig in the branch, the branch in the limb, the limb in the tree, the tree in the ground, And the green grass growing all around, all around, And the green grass growing all around.
5.  There was a litde leaf, the prettiest little leaf, The sweetest little leaf you ever did see. The leaf in the twig, the twig in the branch,
the branch in the limb, the limb in the tree,
the tree in the ground, And the green grass growing all around, all around, And the green grass growing all around.
6.  There was a little nest, the prettiest little nest, The sweetest litde nest you ever did see. The nest in the leaf, the leaf in the twig,
the twig in the branch, the branch in the limb, the limb in the tree, the tree in the ground, And the green grass growing all around, all around, And the green grass growing all around.
7. There was a little egg, the prettiest little egg, The sweetest little egg you ever did see. The egg in the nest, the nest in the leaf,
the leaf in the twig, the twig in the branch, the branch in the limb, the limb in the tree, the tree in the ground, And the green grass growing all around, all around, And the green grass growing all around.
