" I ^Was when the Sheep were Shearing,
X And under the Barly Mow ;
Dick gave to Doll a Fairing,
As she had milk'd her Cow :

And merrily Buckle too,
With Hey Pish, Hey Cock, Hey, and hey for a Boy •

Sing ah ! shall I come, shall I come Kiss thee now ?

For I am too young to Wed ;
She said, she ne'er cou'd Love him,
Nor any Man close in Bed ;
Then fie Pish, fie, nay Pish, nay prithee stand by,
For I am too young to Wed.
