  • Good morrow Gossip Joan
    Where have you been a-walking?
    I have for you at home
    I have for you at home
    A budget full of talking
    Gossip Joan

    My sparrow's flown away
    And will no more come to me
    I've broke a glass today
    I've broke a glass today
    The price will quite undo me
    Gossip Joan

    I've lost a Harry groat
    Was left me by my granny
    I cannot find it out
    I cannot find it out
    I've searched in every cranny
    Gossip Joan

    I've lost my wedding ring
    That was made of silver gilded
    I'd drink would please a king
    I'd drink would please a king
    But that my cat has spilled it
    Gossip Joan

    My pocket is cut off
    That was full of sugar candy
    I cannot stop my cough
    I cannot stop my cough
    Without some cherry brandy
    Gossip Joan Lyrics from a song in Public Domain
