This was a circle dance where the girls would face the boys. On the second verse each would choose a partner and they would dance on the last verse.
I've got gold, and I've got silver,
I've got copper, and I've got brass,
I've got all the world can give me,
All I want is a nice young lass.
Fly to the east, fly to the west,
Fly to the one you love the best.
Fol th' riddle, I do, I do, I do;
Fol th' riddle, I do, I do, dey.
Percy Green included this song in his History of Nursery Rhymes (published in London in 1899).
