WHEN JENNY WREN WAS YOUNG 


'Twas once upon a time, when Jenny Wren was young,
So daintily she danced and so prettily she sung,

Robin Redbreast lost his heart, for he was a gallant bird.
So he doffed his hat to Jenny Wren, requesting to beheard.

"Oh, dearest Jenny Wren, if you will but be mine,
You shall feed on cherry pie and drink new currant wine,
I'll dress you like a goldfinch or any peacock gay,
So, dearest Jen, if you'll be mine, let us appoint theday."

Jenny blushed behind her fan and thus declared her mind:
"Since, dearest Bob, I love you well, I'll take your offerkind.
Cherry pie is very nice and so is currant wine,
But I must wear my plain brown gown and never go too fine."
