Sonny

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

A sailor gave his sonny

 

Nearly half a pint of money

 

And sent him out to buy a ton of coal;

 

But he met a poor old miser

 

Who told him it were wiser

 

To bury all his money in a hole.

 


A sailor gave his sonny

 

Nearly half a pint of money

 

And told him he should buy a suit of clothes;

 

But he saw a pretty maiden

 

With all kinds of posies laden,

 

And he gave her all his money for a rose.

 


Then the sailor gave his sonny

 

Nearly half a pint of money

 

To buy a little garden and a house;

 

But he found him the next day,

 

In a shop on Yesler Way,

 

A-buying cheese and crackers for a mouse.
