COME OUT TO PLAY

[11]

Girls and boys, come out to play,

The moon is shining as bright as day:

Leave your supper, and leave your sleep,

And join your playfellows in the street.

Come with a whoop and come with a call,

Come with a good will or not at all.

Up the ladder and down the wall,

A halfpenny roll will serve us all.

You find milk and I 'll find flour,

And we'll have a pudding in half an hour.
