Little Bo Peep

Little Bo Peep has lost her sheep and doesn’t know where to find them
Leave them alone and they will come home
Bringing their tails behind them.

Little Bo Peep fell fast asleep and dreamt she heard them bleating
But when she awoke she found it a joke for they were still all fleeting

Then up she took her little crook determined for to find them
She found them indeed but it made her heart bleed for they’d left their tails behind them

It happened one day as Bo Peep did stray into a meadow near by
There she a spied their tails side by side all hung on a tree to dry

She heaved a sigh and wiped her eye and over the hillocks went rambling
And tried what she could as a shepherdess would to tack each again to it’s lambkin
