I learnt this at school but can only remember two lines.
If you'll come along with me to Shepherd's Market'
I will buy a bunch of Lilies/ribbons for your hair.
T realise its a forlorn hope, but someone out there with a better memory may have learnt it.

Guest, Jean, it's an Eleanor Farjeon poem. I found a snippet at this site, but can't copy-paste it as it's Flash content, so you'll have to go there for it. Good luck finding more of it!

Found the source poem somewhere I could grab it:

Will you go along with me to Shepherd Market?
It's there they hold the merriest Fair in May.
Will you go along with me to Shepherd Market
In a pair of red-heeled slippers very gay?
I'll pick a bunch of cowslips for your bodice,
And I'll tie a yellow ribbon in your hair,
If you'll go along with me to shepherd Market
And dance me round the Maypole at May-Fair.

- Eleanor Farjeon, ca. 1916
(specific source not cited)

And you lucky UK residents can buy it from Amazon UK for .31

At least, that's what I found when I typed 'Nursery Rhymes of London Town' in the Google advanced search.

For .31 I'd buy it just to get the tunes.

I once bought a used book from Goodwill (I think, or maybe Salvation Army) through Amazon for $.00 or maybe $.01.

They do this because Amazon allows them to add a "postage and handling" charge, and that alone allows them to make a profit.

The books, after all, are donated.

Even with the postage from UK, "Nursery Rhymes..." by Farjeon is reasonable. I get books and CDs from UK fairly often; the postage charge is low.
