Abby Sale,


the version I have is almost identical with yours, but with these variations:

The Mallard

I have et, and what have I et?
I have etten the leg of a mallard.

Leg, legy,
Thigh, thighy,
Shin, shiny,
Foot, footy,
Web, weby,
Heel, heely,
Toe, toey,
With feathers and all.
And good a-meat was the mallard

But now I am in Debility Hall
And good a-meat was the mallard

I have et, and what have I et,
I have etten the wing of a mallard.
Wing, wingy,
Leg, legy
etc

I have et, and what have I et,
I have etten the rump of a mallard.
Rump, rumpy
Wing, wingy,
Leg, legy
etc

Then:       Neck, necky,
       Head, heady,
       Bill, billy,
       Tongue, tonguey.
And good a-meat was the mallard

But now I am in Debility Hall
And good a-meat was the mallard!
