Ok ! wood I wag a little boy,
And first a horse could straddle,
Of all hit rait, my pride and joy
Wu canter, minus saddle !
That rocking cradle never tired
Bat easy, waring motion ;
Bat now I'm old and hoary-haired,
Dttoftler raits my notion 1
I wad to canter that old gray
His broad back not a rag on
Bight through to milt, for holiday
Then canter with the bag on !
It was a sin ; but then I tow
If en are but children grown up ;
Twas canter then, decanter now,
And I the corn will own up !
