Girls And Boys Come Out To Play

Girls and boys
Come out to play
The moon does shine
As bright as day
Come with a whoop
And come with a call
Come with a good will
Or not at all

Loose your supper,
And loose your sleep,
Come to your playfellows
In the street
Up the ladder
And down the wall
A halfpenny loaf
Will serve us all.

But when the loaf is gone,
What will you do?
Those who would eat
Must work, it is true
You’ll find milk
And I’ll find flour
And we’ll have pudding
In half an hour

Girls and boys come
Out to play
The moon does shine
As bright as day
Come with a whoop
And come with a call
Come with a good will or not at all.
