Original text and translations
A Franklyn’s dogge leped over a style,
And hys name was littel Byngo,
B wiyth a Y, Y wiyth an N,
N wiyth a G, G wiyth an O,
They call’d hym littel Byngo.
Thys Franklyn, Syrs, he brewed goode ayle,
And he called it Rare goode Styngo!
S, T, Y, N, G, O!
He called it Rare goode Styngo!
Nowe is not this a prettie song?
I thynke it is bye Jyngo!
J with a Y, N, G, O!
I swear it is by Jyngo!
