This eBook from the Gutenberg Project consists of approximately 3 pages of information about The Farmer's Boy.

When I was a farmer, a Farmer’s Boy,
I used to keep my master’s ducks,
With a quack-quack here, and a quack-quack there,
And here a quack, and there a quack,
And everywhere a quack;
With a grunt-grunt here, and a grunt-grunt there,
&c., &c., &c. 
With a Chuck-Chuck here, &c. 
With a baa-baa here, &c. 
With a Gee-WO here, &c.

Says I, My pretty lass, will you come to the banks of the Aire oh?
