J <£my Wren fell sick
Upon a merry time,
In came Robin lEedbreast,
And brought her sops
and wine.
 € Eat well of the sops, Jenny,
Drink well of the wine,'
€ Thank yon, Robin, kindly,
Yon shall be mine/
Then Jenny she got well,
And stood npon her feet,
And told Robin plainly
She loved him not a bit.
Robin being angry,
Hopped npon a twig,
Saying,' Ont on yon, fie on
Bold-faced Jig.' [yon,
Jenny Wren fell sick again,
And Jenny Wren did die.
The doctors vow'd to tfure her
Or know the reason why.
 4
Doctor Hawk felt her pulsef
And shaking his head,
Said, c I fear I can't save hers
Because she's quite dead.'
' She'll do very well then,'
Said Old Doctor Fox,
take but one pill,
of this box.'
i
With hartshorn in hand,
Came Doctor Tom Tit,
Saying ' Really, good sirs,
'Tis only a fit.'
You're right, Doctor Tit,
You need not doubt it,
But death's such a fit,
Folks seldom get out of it.
 Doctor Cat says f Indeed,
I don't think she's dead;
I believe, if I try,
She may yet be blect.'
(I think, Puss, you're foolish,'
Then said Doctor Goose,
4 For to bleed a dead Wren,
Can be of no use.'
w
Doctor Owl then declared
(J *  i
That the cause of her death,
He really believed,    [breath.
Was for want of more
Indeed, Doctor Owl,
You are much in the right,
You might as well have said,
That day is not night.
 Says Robin, ' Get out you're a set of
quacks,
Or I'll lay this stickupon your backs'
So Robin began to bang them about,
They stay'd for no fees, but were
glad to get out,
Then Robin long for Jenny grieves,
At last he covered her with leaves,
Yet near the place a mournful lay,
For Jenny Wren sings every day.
