Title: Brooms for old shoes
Composer: Thomas Ravenscroft
Original text and translations
Brooms for old shoes, pouch rings,
boots and buskins,
will ye buy any new broom?
New oysters, new cockles, fresh herrings.
Will ye buy any straw?
Have ye any kitchen stuff maids?
Pippins fine, cherry ripe.
Have ye any wood to cleave?
Give ear to the clock,
beware your lock,
and your fine and your light,
and God give you goodnight.
