THEBE WAS AN OLD WOMAN LIV'D UNDER A HILL.
This is contained in all the editions of Pills to purge Melancholy, and the tune introduced in The Jovial Crew, and other ballad-operas. The following words are from The Jovial Crew:
The miller he kiss'd her; away she went,
Sing trolly, lolly, lolly, lolly lo; The maid was well pleas'd, and the miller content,
Oh ho! Oh ho! Oh ho! was it so ?
He danc'd and he sung, while the mill went clack;
Sing trolly, lolly, lolly, lolly lo; And he cherish'd his heart with a cup of old sack,
Oh ho ! Oh ho! Oh ho! did he so »
THE COBBLERS' HORNPIPE.
From The Dancing Master of 1701, and contained in subsequent editions; in vol. i. of Walsh's Oompleat Country Dancing Master.
