THERE once was a very plain cook,
Who went to the larder to look.
But Tommy was seen,
Where dumplings had been,
And hard was the hand of the cook.

T HERE was a nice boy with a rat,
Who opened the cage on the mat.
His sister was there;
She stood on a chair,
And shouted, "Oh, where is the cat?"

T HERE once was a youth of HanRow,
Who fell fast asleep on a bough;
His pigtail entangled,
That Chinaman dangled-
Perhaps he is swinging there now.

A DESPERATE robber from Deal,
Said, "Never again will I steal!
I truly repent,
And only just meant
To look at your fine piece of veal."


THERE was a nice girl of Japan,
Who met with a seafaring man.
He said, "In this gale,
'Twere foolish to sail."
She answered, "It's only my fan!"


ITHERE was a dark girl from Jamaica,
Who lived in the house of a baker.
She thought she looked pale,
And said she should sail
On board the next ship that would
take her.

T HERE was a bold youngster
named Jim,
Who thought he would go
for a swim.
He saw a great shark,
Cried, "'Oh, what a lark!
I won't make a dinner for him."

T HERE once was a boy in the snow,
Who thought he would aim
at a crow;
But the snow-ball, instead,
Hit a gentleman's head.
"I think," said the boy, "I shall go!"

THERE is a young person of York,
Who pins on her hat with a fork.
The people all stare,
And shout, "Oh, look there!"
Whenever she goes for a walk.

THERE was a young man of Bengal,
Whose wardrobe was nothing at all.
Wherever he went,
He lived in a tent,
And covered himself with a shawl.

IHERE was a tall boy with a hose,
Who went out to water a rose.
A man, who sat nigh,
Looked up with a sigh,
And said, "It is rain, I suppose!"

THERE was a young Moor from
Who said, "It is past one
o'clock, oh!
Before it strikes two
I'll take off my shoe,
And mend the small hole in
my sock, oh!"

THERE was an old lady at darR,
Who went for a walk in the park.
A boy on a post
She thought was a ghost,
But he only thought it a lark.

T HERE came a young lady
from Brighton,
Whom it was very easy to frighten;
The sight of a snail
Would make her turn pale,
And run all the way back
to Brighton.

T HERE was a brave boy on an ass,
Who said, "All the rest
I will pass!"
He tugged at the rein,
And lifted his cane-
Then rested a while on the grass.

THERE once was a small boy of Tring,
Who said, "I don't think they
will sting."
He went to the hive,
And, though still alive,
He carries his arm in a sling.

THER.E was an old man with a corn,
Who wished he had never
been born.
But Jack did not Know,
When he trod on his toe,
And afterwards looked most forlorn.

THERE lived a big, bold buccaneer,
Who said, "If you dare
to come near,
I'll cut off your head,
And when you are dead,
I certainly sha'n't shed a tear."

THERE was a wee girl on the rocks,
Who took off her shoes
and her socks.
A mermaid tried one,
And, when she had done.
Returned it by post in a box.

HERE was a young man with a pie,
Who thought he would look
at the sky.
A doggie behind
Said, "Isn't it Kind?"
But where is the rest of the pie?

THERE was a young tripper from Bow,
Who thought he would go for a row;
Stood up in the boat
To take off his coat-
Now, how will he get back to Bow?
