Sounds of Home – Connection

Tuesdays at 2pm
Welcome to the March 30th edition of Sounds of Home!

Jenny Wren

‘Twas on a merry time, when Jenny Wren was young,
So neatly as she danced, and so sweetly as she sung.
Robin Redbreast lost his heart, he was a gallant bird,
He doffed his cap to Jenny Wren, requesting to be heard.

“My dearest Jenny Wren, if you will be but mine,
You shall dine on cherry pie, and drink nice currant wine;
I’ll dress you like a goldfinch, or like a peacock gay,
So if you’ll have me Jenny, dear, let’s us appoint the day.”

Jenny blushed behind her fan, and thus declared her mind,
“So let it be tomorrow, Rob, I’ll take your offer kind;
Cherry pie is good, and so is currant wine,
But I will wear my plain brown gown, and never dress too fine.”

Robin Redbreast got up early, all at the break of day,
He flew to Jenny Wren’s house, and sang a roundelay;
He sang of Robin Redbreast, and pretty Jenny Wren,
And when he came unto the end, he then began again.
