My Cock Lily-cock

from Popular Rhymes And Nursery Tales - NURSERY-SONGS.





An inferior version of the following, which was obtained from Essex, is
printed in Mr. Chambers's Popular Rhymes of Scotland, ed. 1847, p. 190.
A Swedish version, or rather a variation, in Lilja, p. 17, commences as
follows: "I served a farmer for four years, and he paid me with a hen.
'Skrock, skrock!' said my hen. I served a farmer for four years, and he
paid me with a cock. 'Kucklilo!' said my cock. 'Skrock, skrock!' said my
hen, &c."

I had a cock, and a cock lov'd me,
And I fed my cock under a hollow tree;
My cock cried--cock-cock-coo--
Every body loves their cock, and I love my cock too!

I had a hen, and a hen lov'd me,
And I fed my hen under a hollow tree;
My hen went--chickle-chackle, chickle-chackle--
My cock cried--cock-cock-coo--
Every body loves their cock, and I love my cock too!

I had a goose, and a goose lov'd me,
And I fed my goose under a hollow tree;
My goose went--qua'k, qua'k--
My hen went--chickle-chackle, chickle-chackle--
My cock cried--cock-cock-coo--
Every body loves their cock, and I love my cock too!

I had a duck, and a duck lov'd me,
And I fed my duck under a hollow tree;
My duck went--quack, quack, quack--
My goose went--qua'k, qua'k--
My hen went--chickle-chackle, chickle-chackle--
My cock cried--cock-cock-coo--
Every body loves their cock, and I love my cock too!

I had a drake, and a drake lov'd me,
And I fed my drake under a hollow tree;
My drake went--ca-qua, ca-qua, ca-qua--
My duck went--quack, quack, quack--
My goose went--qua'k, qua'k, qua'k--
My hen went--chickle-chackle, chickle-chackle--
My cock cried--cock-cock-coo--
Every body loves their cock, and I love my cock too!

I had a cat, and a cat lov'd me,
And I fed my cat under a hollow tree;
My cat went--miow, miow, miow--
My drake went--ca-qua, ca-qua, ca-qua--
My duck went--quack, quack, quack--
My goose went--qua'k, qua'k, qua'k--
My hen went--chickle-chackle, chickle-chackle--
My cock cried--cock-cock-coo--
Every body loves their cock, and I love my cock too!

I had a dog, &c. My dog went--bow, wow, wow--
I had a cow, &c. My cow went--moo, moo, moo--
I had a sheep, &c. My sheep went--baa, baa, baa--
I had a donkey, &c. My donkey went--hi-haugh, hi-haugh--
I had a horse, &c.; My horse went--whin-neigh-h-h-h-h--

I had a pig, and a pig lov'd me,
And I fed my pig under a hollow tree;
And my pig went--hoogh, hoogh, hoogh--
My horse went--whin-neigh-h-h-h-h--
My donkey went--hi-haugh, hi-haugh--
My sheep went--baa, baa, baa--
My cow went--moo, moo, moo--
My dog went--bow, wow, wow--
My cat went--miow, miow, miow--
My drake went--ca-qua, ca-qua, ca-qua--
My duck went--quack, quack, quack--
My goose went--qua'k, qua'k, qua'k--
My hen went--chickle-chackle, chickle-chackle--
My cock cried--cock-cock-coo--
Every body loves their cock, and I love my cock too!

And so the pig--grunted,
The horse--neigh'd,
The donkey--bray'd,
The sheep--bleated,
The cow--low'd,
The dog--bark'd,
The cat--mew'd,
The drake--quackled,
The duck--cackled,
The goose--gobbled,
The hen--chuckled,
The cock--crow'd--
And my cock cried--cock-cock-coo!--
Every body loves their cock, and I love my cock too!
