It’s of three jovial huntsmen, an’ a hunting they did go;
    An’ they hunted, an’ they hollo’d, an’ they blew their horns also
                                            Look ye there!

[Illustration]

An’ one said, “Mind yo’r e’en, an’ keep yo’r noses reet i’ th’ wind
    An’ then, by scent or seet, we’ll leet o’ summat to our mind.” 
                                            Look ye there!

They hunted, an’ they hollo’d, an’ the first thing they did find
Was a tatter’t boggart, in a field, an’ that they left behind. 
                                            Look ye there!

One said it was a boggart, an’ another he said “Nay;
It’s just a ge’man-farmer, that has gone an’ lost his way.” 
                                            Look ye there!

They hunted, an’ they hollo’d, an’ the next thing they did find
Was a gruntin’, grindin’ grindlestone, an’ that they left behind. 
                                            Look ye there!

One said it was a grindlestone, another he said “Nay;
It’s nought but an’ owd fossil cheese, that somebody’s roll’t away.” 
                                            Look ye there!

They hunted, an’ they hollo’d, an’ the next thing they did find
Was a bull-calf in a pin-fold, an’ that, too, they left behind. 
                                            Look ye there!

One said it was a bull-calf, an’ another he said “Nay;
It’s just a painted jackass, that has never larnt to bray.” 
                                            Look ye there!

They hunted, an’ they hollo’d, an’ the next thing they did find
Was a two-three children leaving school, an’ these they left behind. 
                                            Look ye there!

One said that they were children, but another he said “Nay;
They’re no’ but little angels, so we’ll leave ’em to their play.” 
                                            Look ye there!

They hunted, an’ they hollo’d, an’ the next thing they did find
Was a fat pig smiling in a ditch, an’ that, too, they left behind. 
                                            Look ye there!

One said it was a fat pig, but another he said “Nay;
It’s just a Lunnon Alderman, whose clothes are stole away.” 
                                            Look ye there!
