OF ALL THE BIRDS. In Beaumont and Fletcher's play, The Knight of the Burning Pestle, Old Merrythought sings many snatches of old songs, and among others— " Nose, nose, jolly red nose, And who gave thee this jolly red nose ? Cinnamon, ginger, nutmegs and cloves, And they gave me this jolly red nose ;" •which are the four last lines of this song. It is one of the King Henry's Mirth or Freemen's Songs in Deuteromelia, 1609.
