The Real Mother Goose

«·OLD MOTHER HUBBARD · JACK JELF·»

WHY MAY NOT I LOVE JOHNNY?

Johnny shall have a new bonnet,
 And Johnny shall go to the fair,
And Johnny shall have a blue ribbon
 To tie up his bonny brown hair.

And why may not I love Johnny?
 And why may not Johnny love me?
And why may not I love Johnny
 As well as another body?

And here’s a leg for a stocking,
 And here’s a foot for a shoe,
And he has a kiss for his daddy,
 And two for his mammy, I trow.

And why may not I love Johnny?
 And why may not Johnny love me?
And why may not I love Johnny
 As well as another body? Why May I not Love Johnny?
