Three Children On The Ice

Three children sliding on the ice

Upon a summer's day,

As it fell out, they all fell in,

The rest they ran away.

Oh, had these children been at school,

Or sliding on dry ground,

Ten thousand pounds to one penny,

They had not then been drowned.

Ye parents who hae children dear, 

An ye, too, who have none,

If you would keep them safe abroad

Pray keep them safe at home.
