[Illustration]

A Farmer Went Riding

A farmer went riding upon his gray mare,

Bumpety, bumpety, bump!

With his daughter behind him, so rosy and fair,

Lumpety, lumpety, lump!


A raven cried "Croak!" and they all tumbled down,

Bumpety, bumpety, bump!

The mare broke her knees and the farmer his crown,

Lumpety, lumpety, lump!
