SIR HUGH Sung by Mrs. Hiram Vaughan; noted by Mrs. Johnson
blood, Which en-ticed the lit-tle boy in*
1.     It rained a mist; it rained a mist
All o'er, all o'er the town, When two little boys went out
To toss their ball around, -round, -round, To toss their ball around.
2.     It was first too low and then too high,
And then again too low, And then into the Jew's garden
Where none was allowed to go, go, go, Where none was allowed to go.
