The Robin  (Paul Williams circa 1890)


Oh I saw a robin dear in a tree.

And he sang a little song, just for me.

Oh he sang a little song,

But he didn’t sing it long,

For the wind was blowing strong,

As could be.


verse 2

For it blew him far away out of sight,

And the snow was falling down thick and white.

Oh it blew him far away,

And I didn’t care to play,

Any more at all that day,

Until night.

verse 3

Then at night I said my prayers by my bed,

I remembered what in church once was said,

How God listens to each word

So I told him of the bird

And i’m very sure he heard

what I said.


verse 4

For the snow soon went away and at dawn,

Little robin hopped around on the lawn.

And he sang a jubilee,

In the crooked apple tree,

For the winter, don’t you see,

It was gone.

Traditionally only the first verse is sung with young children, “popping” up or jumping on the last line.  The complete lyrics are included for your reference.

Pop Goes the Weasel


(note variation of first line)

‘Round and ‘round the cobbler’s bench

The monkey chased the weasel,

The monkey thought 'twas all in fun

Pop! Goes the weasel.


A penny for a spool of thread

A penny for a needle,

That's the way the money goes,

Pop! Goes the weasel.


A half a pound of tupenny rice,

A half a pound of treacle.

Mix it up and make it nice,

Pop! Goes the weasel.


Up and down the London road,

In and out of the Eagle,

That's the way the money goes,

Pop! Goes the weasel.


I've no time to plead and pine,

I've no time to wheedle,

Kiss me quick and then I'm gone

Pop! Goes the weasel.
