  • Girls and boys come out to play
    The moon doth shine as bright as day
    Leave your supper and leave your sleep
    And come with your playfellows into the street
    Come with a whoop come with a call
    Come with a good will or not at all
    Up the ladder and down the wall
    A half-penny roll will serve us all
    You find milk and I'll find flour
    And we'll have a pudding in half an hour Lyrics from a song in Public Domain
