PRETTY LITTLE GIRL OF MINE
V. Here's a pretty little girl of mine,
She's cost me many a bottle of wine; A bottle of wine and a guinea too, See what my little girl can do.
Down on the carpet she must kneel, As the grass grows in the field ; Stand upright upon her feet, And choose the one she loves so sweet.
Now you're married I wish you joy, Father and mother you must obey; Love one another like sister and brother, And pray, young couple, come kiss one another.
—Colchester (Miss G. M. Frances).
VI. Oh ! this pretty little girl of mine,
She bought me many a bottle of wine, A bottle of wine she gave me too, So see what my little girl could do.
Stand up, stand up upon your feet, And choose the one you love so sweet.
—Liphook, Hants (Miss Fowler).
VII. See what a pretty little girl have I, She brings me many a bottle of wi'; A bottle of wine and a biscuit too, See what a little girl can do. On the carpet she shall kneel, As the grass grows in the fiel'; Stand upright upon your feet, And choose the one you love so sweet.
Now you're married we wish you joy, First a girl and then a boy, Seven years after, son and daughter, May you couple kiss together.
—South Devon (Notes and Queries, 8th series, i. 249 ;
Miss R. H. Busk).
VIII. See what a pretty little girl I am,
She gave me many a bottle of wine,
