1. Oh, Where Have You Been Billy Boy, Billy Boy
American Folk-Song
2/4 Time

Oh, where have you been Billy boy, Billy boy,
Oh, where have you been, charming Billy?
I've been to seek a wife,
She's the joy of my life.
She's a young thing and cannot leave her mother.

2. Mary Had a Little Lamb
written by Sarah Hale in 1830
2/4 Time

Mary had a little lamb,
little lamb, little lamb,
Mary had a little lamb,
its fleece was white as snow.
And everywhere that Mary went,
Mary went, Mary went,
Everywhere that Mary went,
the lamb was sure to go.

3. Brother Come and Dance with Me
from "Hansel and Gretel" by E. Humperdinck (1864-1921)
2/4 Time

Brother, come and dance with me,
Both my hands I offer thee,
Right foot first, left foot then,
Round about and back again.

4. Baa, Baa, Black Sheep
Traditional
2/4 Time

Baa, baa, black sheep,
Have you any wool?
Yes sir, yes sir,
Three bags full.
One for the master,
One for the dame,
One for the little boy
Who lives down the lane.

5. Bobby Shaftoe
Northumbrian folk song
2/4 Time

Bobby Shaftoe's gone to sea,
Silver buckles on his knee,
he'll come back and marry me,
Bonny Bobby Shaftoe.
Refrain
Bobby Shaftoe's bright and fair,
Combing down his yellow hair,
He'll be mine for ever more,
Bonny Bobby Shaftoe.
