There Was a Piper Had a Cow - English Children's Songs - England - Mama Lisa's World: Children's Songs and Rhymes from Around the World  - Intro Image

Notes

*A ridge of corn plants growing in the ground.
**"Corn Rigs are Bonny" is the name of the song the cow wanted the piper to play!

Here's another version of this rhyme from Harry's Ladder to Learning (1850):

There was a piper who had a cow,
But he had no hay to give her;
So he took his pipes and played a tune,
Consider, old cow, consider!
