“Boys and girls come out to play The moon doth shine as bright as day; Leave your supper and leave your sleep, And come with your playfellows into the street”
Come with a whoop, come with a call,
Come with a good will or not at all.
Up the ladder and down the wall,
A halfpenny roll will serve us all.
You find milk and I’ll find flour,
And we’ll have a pudding in half an hour”
The lyrics of the famous nursery rhyme date back to the 18th century. James Orchard Halliwell, the famous antiquarian, Shakespearean scholar and collector of fairy tales and nursery rhymes had collected the verse.
