Reel 89, Item 2
When I Was a Little Boy
When I was a little boy I lived by myself;
All the bread and cheese I got, I put it on the shelf.
The rats and the mice, they led me sich a life,
I had to go to London to get me a wife.
The roads was so wide, and the streets was so narrow,
I had to bring my wife home on a wheelbarrow;
The wheelbarrow broke and my wife caught a fall,
Down come wheelbarrow, wife and all.
With my whee who whaddle oh, jack straw straddle oh,
Little boy baddle oh and one for my broom.
