GIRLS & BOYS COME OUT TO PLAY

Boys and girls come out to play,

The moon does shine as bright as day

Come with a hoop, and come with a call,

Come with a good will or not at all.

Loose your supper, and loose your sleep,

Come to your playfellows in the street.

Up the ladder and down the wall.

A halfpenny loaf will serve us all.

But when the loaf is gone, what will you do?

Those who would eat must work – ’tis true.
