I. Here's a pretty little girl of mine,
She's brought me many a bottle of wine; A bottle of wine she gave me too— See what this little girl can do.
On the carpet she shall kneel
As the grass grows on the fiel' ;
Stand upright on your feet,
And choose the one you love so sweet.
Now you are married I wish you joy, First a girl and then a boy; Seven years after, son and daughter; Pray, young couple, kiss together.
—Symondsbury, Dorset (Folk-lore Journal, vii. 207).
II. Oh, this pretty little girl of mine, Brought me many a bottle of wine; A bottle of wine and a guinea, too, See what my little girl can do.
