Playing at bob cherry
Language: English 
Playing at bob cherry
  Tom and Nell and Hugh:
Cherry bob! cherry bob!
  There's a bob for you.

Tom bobs a cherry
  For gaping snapping Hugh,
While curly-pated Nelly
  Snaps at it too.

Look, look, look --
  Oh what a sight to see!
The wind is playing cherry bob
  With the cherry tree.
