Little Bo Peep

Written by: Unknown

Little Bo Peep has lost her sheep
And doesn’t know where to find them
Leave them alone, and they’ll come home
Bringing 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 they were still a-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 their tails behind them

It happened one day, as Bo Peep did stray
Into 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 went rambling
And tried what she could, as a shepherdess should
To tack each again to its lambkin
