The Robber

Forth from his den to steal he stole.
His bag of chink he chunk;
And many a wicked smile he smole
And many a wink he wunk.

I have it as:
"Into the house to steal he stole
a box of chinky chunk
and many a wicked smile he smole and many a wink he wunk"
Any ideas of provenance? I have it from my mother Dorothy Newsome of Scarborough, Yorkshire

My dad (born 1942, Manitoba, Canada) always used to say:

'Forth from his den the stealer stole.
His bag of chink he chunk,
And many a wicked smile he smole,
And many a wink he wunk.'
