Subject: RE: Origins: Rosy Betsy, blue eyed Molly Molly
Here is the version we sang in 4th grade in a small town in Iowa:

Rosy Betsy, blue eyed Molly, Molly
April is the time for folly, folly
Blackbird's shouts ring round and round
While Jenny Wren is building in the Willow.

Put off your cloaks of grey and brown
Put on the clogs you wear to town
   (This is the line I couldn't remember, Thanks for the reminder):
Run in the meadow up and down
While Jenny Wren is building in the Meadow.
