YOOS8, Goosey Gander,
Where shall I wander?
Upstairs, downstairs,
And in my lady's chamber.






There I met an old man,
That would not say his prayers;
I took him by the left leg,
And threw him downstairs,

Warming her pretty little toes.
Her mother came and caught her,
And whipped her little daughter
For spoiling her nice new clothes!

"THR8 was a little man,
and he had a little gun,
And his bullets were made
of lead, lead, lead;
He went to the brook,
and saw a little duck,
And shot it through
the head, head, head.

He carried it home
to his old wife Joan,
And bade her a fire
to make, make, make,
To roast the little duck
he had shot in the brook,
And he'd go and fetch
the drake, drake, drake.
