I had a little hobby-horse

Melody -

I had a little hobby-horse,
And it was dapple grey.
Its head was made of pea-straw;
Its tail was made of hay.

I sold it to an old woman
For a copper groat;
And I'll not sing my song again
Without a new coat.
  I had a little hobby horse,
It was well shod,
It carried me to London,
Niddery nod,

And when we got to London
We heard a great shout,
Down fell my hobby horse
And I cried out:

Up again, hobby horse,
If thou be a beast,
When we get to our town
We will have a feast,

And if there is but little,
Why thou shalt have some,
And dance to the bag-pipes
And beating of the drum.
