Edition notes: Error noted: tenor's last note in bar 3 should presumably be C rather than B. (The editor, Andreas Stenberg, is uncontactable because his email address has apparently lapsed.) - Mick Swithinbank

Maides to bed, and couer coale,
Let the Mouse Out of her hole.
Crickets in the Chimney sing,
Whil'st the little Bell doth ring.
If fast asleepe, who can tell
When the Clapper hits the Bell.
