Little maid, little maid,
Whither goest thou?
Down in the meadow
To milk my cow.
Here's the version from The Real Mother Goose (1916):
Little Maid, Pretty Maid, Whither Goest Thou?
"Little maid, pretty maid, whither goest thou?"
"Down in the forest to milk my cow."
"Shall I go with thee?" "No, not now;
When I send for thee, then come thou."
