Little Bo Peep had lost her sheep
but the butcher's daughter knew where to find them.
Leave them alone and they shan't come home,
The butcher's daghter has cooked and dined them.
Little Bo Peep fell fast asleep,
and dreamt heard them bleating,
But when she awoke, she found it a joke,
For they were all dead and bleeding
Then up she took her little crook.
Determined for to find them.
She found them indeed, but it made her heart bleed,
For their heads were all that was left of them.
It happened one day, as Bo Peep did stray,
Into a dark alley at night.
There she aspied their heads side by side
And hung on a line to dry.
She heaved a sigh, not wiping her eye,
And down the street she strode rambling.
And tried as they could,
None of the doctors would
Be able to keep her mind from wilting
