    You've garbled it a bit. Here's the whole text from a source that says it's anonymous.

    Going on an Errand

    A pound of tea at one and three

    And a pot of raspberry jam

    Two new laid eggs a dozen pegs

    And a pound of rashers of ham.

    I'll say it over all the way

    And then I'm sure not to forget

    For if I chance to bring things wrong

    My Mother gets in such a sweat.

    A pound of tea at one and three

    And a pot of raspberry jam

    Two new laid eggs a dozen pegs

    And a pound of rashers of ham.

    There in the hay the children play

    They're having such fine fun

    I'll go there too that's what I?ll do

    As soon as my errands are done

    A pound of tea at one and three

    A pot of er new laid jam

    Two raspberry eggs with a dozen pegs

    And a pound of rashers of ham.

    There's Teddy White flying his kite

    He thinks himself grand I declare

    I'd like to make it fly up sky high

    Ever so much higher than the old church spire

    And then - but there

    A pound of three at one and tea

    A pot of new laid jam

    Two dozen eggs, some raspberry pegs

    And a pound of rashers of ham.

    Now here's the shop outside I'll stop

    And run my orders through again

    I haven't forgot - it's better not

    It shows I'm pretty quick that's plain.

    A pound of tea at one and three

    A dozen of raspberry ham

    A pot of eggs with a dozen pegs

    And a rasher of new laid jam.
