There Was a Goose There was a goose, They ca'd it Luce, Was paidlin in a pool-ie; By came a tod, Wi' mony a nod, And bade it till its Yool-ie. He took her hame, And [made her warm], And put her on a stoolie; He singet her claes, And burnt her claes, And gar'd her look like a fool-ie! ________________________________________________________ Chambers PRS 1847, 186.
