Robin a bobbin

Melody -

He bent his bow,
Shot at a pigeon
And killed a crow;
Shot at another
And killed his own brother,
Did Robin-a-bobbin
Who bent his bow.

The expression 'to shoot at a pigeon and kill a crow' dates at least from 1639. It was used by the British Home Secretary in the House of Commons, 14. January 1946, and by Winston Churchill, 17. November 1949.
