Wishing you a safe and Happy New Year 2016!!!
It rained so hard [E] all day,
That all the boys in [A] our school
[B7] Came out to toss and [E] play.
They tossed a ball again so high,
Then again, so low;
They tossed it into a flower garden
Where no-one was allowed to go.
Up stepped a gypsy lady,
All dressed in yellow and green;
“Come in, come in, my pretty little boy,
And get your ball again.”
“I can’t come in, I shan’t come in
Without my playmates all;
I’ll go to my father and tell him about it,
That’ll cause his tears to fall.”
She first showed him an apple seed,
Then again gold rings,
Then she showed him a diamond,
And that enticed him in.
She took him by his lily-white hand,
She led him through the hall;
She put him into
an upper room,
Where no-one could hear him call.
“Oh, take these finger rings off my finger,
Smoke them with your breath;
If any of my friends should call for me,
Tell them that I’m at rest.”
