Nursery Rhyme lyrics, origins and history

Oh, Pillykin, Willykin, Winky Wee!
How does the President take his tea?
He takes it with melons, he takes it with milk,
He takes it with syrup and sassafras silk;
He takes it without and he takes it within,
Oh, Pinky-doodle and Jollapin!

Oh, Pillykin, Willykin, Winky Wee
