The THREE JOVIAL HUNTSMEN.

IT'S of three jovial huntsmen, an' a hunting they did go; An' they hunted, an' they hollo'd, an' they blew their horns also Look ye there!

An' one said, "Mind yo'r e'en, an' keep yo'r noses reet i' th' wind An' then, by scent or seet, we'll leet o' summat to our mind." Look ye there!

They hunted, an' they hollo'd, an' the first thing they did find Was a tatter't boggart, in a field, an' that they left behind. Look ye there!

One said it was a boggart, an' another he said "Nay; It's just a ge'man farmer, that has gone an' lost his way." Look ye there!

They hunted, an' they hollo'd, an' the next thing they did find Was a gruntin', grindin' grindlestone, an' that they left behind. Look ye there!

One said it was a grindlestone, another he said "Nay; It's nought but an' owd fossil cheese, that somebody's roll't away." Look ye there!

They hunted, an' they hollo'd, an' the next thing they did find Was a bull calf in a pin fold, an' that, too, they left behind. Look ye there!

One said it was a bull calf, an' another he said "Nay; It's just a painted jackass, that has never larnt to bray." Look ye there!

They hunted, an they hollo'd, an' the next thing they did find Was a two three children leaving school, an' these they left behind. Look ye there!

They hunted, an' they hollo'd, an' the next thing they did find Was a fat pig smiling in a ditch, an' that, too, they left behind. Look ye there!

They hunted, an' they hollo'd, an' the next thing they did find Was two young lovers in a lane, an' these they left behind. Look ye there!

One said that they were lovers, but another he said "Nay; They're two poor wanderin' lunatics come, let us go away." Look ye there!

So they hunted, and they hollo'd, till the setting of the sun; An' they'd nought to bring away at last, when th' huntin' day was done. Look ye there!

Then one unto the other said, "This huntin' doesn't pay; But we'n powler't up an' down a bit, an' had a rattlin' day." Look ye there!
