SIMPLE SIMON met a pieman
Going to the fair;
Says Simple Simon to the pieman,

CO ME, good Mr. Watts, we are troubled with rats,
Will you drive them out of the house ?
We have mice, too, in plenty,
That feed in the pantry;
But let the mice stay.

L ITTLE Miss Muffet
Sat on a tuffet,
Eating of curds and whey;
Along came a spider,
And sat down beside her,
And frightened Miss Muffet away.





Ever after, that spider
Could never abide her,
Because she had nothing to say;
So now, when he sees her, Aii
Not wishing to tease her,
He goes t'other side of the way!

An 1"11 1 got.





The rats and the mice

They led me such a life,
I was forced to go to London-town

To get me a wife.

The streets were so broad,
S' And the lanes were so narrow,
: I was forced to bring my wife home
In a wheelbarrow.
The wheelbarrow broke,
And my wife had a fall,
Down came wheelbarrow,

Wife, and all.

ACK and Jill went up the hill
To fetch a pail of water:
SJack fell down and broke his crown,
And Jill came tumbling after.


Up Jack got and home did trot
As fast as he could caper,
fHe went to bed to mend his head
With vinegar and brown paper.


L Jill came in, and she did grin
To see his paper plaster:
His mother vexed did scold her next
For causing Jack's disaster.

Where shall I wander?

And in my lady's chamber!
There I met a little man
Who wouldn't say his prayers;

And threw him down-stairs!

Bake me a cake
As fast as you can.
Make it and bake it,
And mark it with B,

For Baby and me.

ITrLE r 40-pEEP

A She lost her sheep,
And didn't know where to find them;
S1L et them alone, and they'll come home,
And bring their tails behind them.


A Little Bo-Peep fell fast asleep,
A And dreamt she heard them bleating;
l But when she awoke, she found it a joke,
For they were still a-fleeting.


SThen up she took her little crook,
Determined for to find them;
S She found them indeed, but it made her heart bleed,
For they'd left their tails behind them.

If the bowl had been stronger,

I lent it to a lady
To ride a mile away.
She whipped it, she slashed it,
She drove it through the mire;
I will not lend my pony more
For all the lady's hire!

HERE was a little woman, as I've heard tell;
SShe went to market, her eggs for to sell-
Her eggs for to sell, and her beef for to buy,
And she fell asleep on the king's highway.
Up came a little pedlar, whose name was Stout,
re And he clipped her petticoats all round about,-
All round about, close by her knees:
Then this little woman began for to sneeze.
6 t She began to shiver, and she began to shake,
Till this little woman began to awake.



She began to wake, and she began to cry,
" Dear, ha' mercy on me! This is none of I;
But if this be I, as I suppose it be,
I have a little dog at home, and he knows me."
Home went this little woman, all in the dark, '
And when she came near, her dog began to bark-
Her dog began to bark, and she began to cry,
"Oh dear! ha' mercy on me! This is none of I."

/qN ny YLEGS




AS I was going to sell my eggs,
I met a man with bandy legs:
Bandy legs and crooked toes,
I tripped him up,
And he fell on his nose.

HERE was an old woman
r Tossed up in a blanket,
Ninety times as high as the moon.
SWhere she was going, I couldn't but ask it,
. Io \ jr under her arm she carried a broom.
SOld woman, old woman, old woman," cried I.
Whither oh whither oh whither so high ? "
To sweep the cobwebs off the sky,
S And I'll be with you by-and-by."


<" ,a-. ''" :




H-ERE was a crooked man,
S And he walked a crooked mile,
7 And he found a crooked sixpence
Beside a crooked stile;
And he had a crooked cat,
And it caught a crooked mouse, i
And they all lived together /
In a little crooked house.,, ...

Bumpety, bumpety, bump!
