Songs of the Continent
“When I am rich” is a drinking song and nursery rhyme from the old Plane that is still popular today throughout the continent.
Two Sticks and Apple,
Ring ye Bells at Darkchapple,
Old Father Bald Pate,
Ring ye Bells Aldgate,
Maids in White Aprons,
Ring ye Bells a Count Sapronz,
Oranges and Lemons,
Ring ye bells of the. Schemenns,
When will you pay me,
Ring ye Bells at ye Young Jaime,
When I am Rich,
Ring ye Bells at Fleetditch,
When will that be,
Ring ye Bells at Lowzie,
When I am Old,
Ring ye Bells at Cauls.
Here comes some tinder to light you your path.
There is a cinder to cause you your wrath!
Don’t task an asked one to take you to bath.
Where is a near spoon for pudding with bread?
There is an Earspoon to puncture your head!
Nor ask a tasked one to take you to bed.
Near is the stranger to show you your place.
Hear not the danger what steals you your face!
Ask not the masked one to save your race.
Task not the masked one to save you your place.
