Notes

*Or "The other named Paul."

Here's a variation of this rhyme from The Little Mother Goose (1912):

There Were Two Blackbirds Sitting on a Hill

There were two blackbirds sitting on a hill,
One named Jack and the other named Jill.
Fly away, Jack, fly away, Jill.
Come again, Jack, come again, Jill.
