Lyrics for 'Ride a Cock Horse to Banbury Cross'

Ride a cock-horse*
To Banbury Cross,
To see a fine lady
Upon a white horse,
Rings on her fingers,
And bells on her toes,
She shall have music
Wherever she goes.

*A cock-horse is something used as a toy horse, like a rocking horse or a parent's knee.
