Little Bo-Peep

Little Bo-Peep has lost her sheep,
    And can't tell where to find them;
Leave them alone, and they'll come home,
    And bring 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 still they all were 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 all their tails behind 'em!

It happened one day, as Bo-peep did stray
    Unto a meadow hard by -
There she espied their tails, side by side,
    All hung on a tree to dry.

She heaved a sigh and wiped her eye,
    And over the hillocks she raced;
And tried what she could, as a shepherdess should,
    That each tail should be properly placed.
