Hampshire Folkloi^e. 329
to little Jack's final request : —
" Christmas comes but once a year, And when it comes it brings good cheer : Roast beef, plum pudding, and mince pie, Who likes that any better than I ? Christmas ale makes us dance and sing ; Money in the purse is a very fine thing.
Ladies and Gefitkmen, give us what yotf please."
