There was a Piper had a cow, The cow considered very well,
And he had naught to give her; And gave the Piper a penny,
He pull'd out his pipes and played her a tune, And bade him play the other tune,
And bade the cow consider. Corn rigs are bonny."

Robin and Richard are two pretty men,
They laid in bed till the clock struck ten;
Then up starts Robin and looks in the sky,
"Oh, brother Richard, the sun's very high!
You go on with the bottle and bag,
And I'll come after with jolly Jack Nag."

As I was ooing

up and down,
I met a little dandy,

He pulled my nose,
and with two blows

I knocked him down

quite handy.

1)llN put the 1kett1t on,

Polly put the kettle on,

And let's drin l te a.

Little Miss, pretty Miss,
B blessings light upon you

I'd spend it all upon you.

Up to the middle,
And never went

Mary, Mary, quite contrary,
How does your garden grow ?
Silver bells and cockle shells,
And pretty maids all in a row.

As I was going to sell my eggs,

I met a man with bandy legs---

Bandy legs and crooked toes,

Tripped up his heels,
and he fell on his nose.

i lLittle Polly Flinders,
Sat among the cinders,
\Varming her pretty little toes!
Her mother came and
caught her,
And whipped her
little daughter,
FIor spoiling her nice
new clothes.

See, saw, Margery Daw,
Sold her bed, and lay
upon straw.
Was not she a dirty slut,
To sell her bed
and live in dirt!


Little Tommy Tittlemouse,

Lived in a little house;

He caught fishes,

In other men's ditches.

And asked the way to Norwich.
H-e went by the South, and burnt his mouth,
With eating cold pease porridge.

Fiddle, faddle, feedle.

Hush, baby, my doll, I pray you, don't cry,
And I'll give you some bread,

Pussy Cat Mole,
Jump'd over a coal,
And in her best petticoat
burnt a great hole. .........
Poor pussy is weeping,

Until her best petticoat's
mended with silk. Dickery, dickery, dare,

The man in brown

With one leg in his lap;

And runs away with one leg;

But sit on a cushion and sew a fine seam,

And feed upon strawberries, sugar, and cream!

-There was a man

And robbers came

He crept up to

And then they thought
they had him.

But he got down,

And then they could

He ran fourteen miles

And never looked

I like little pussy,
Her coat is so warm,
And if I don't hurt her,
She'll do me no harm;
So I'll not pull her tail,

To fetch a pail of water

Jack fell down, and broke his crown

And Jill came tumbling after.

Hickety, pickety, my black hen,

She lays good eggs for gentlemen;

Gentlemen come every day,

To see what my black hen doth lay.

Wash the dishes,

Wipe the dishes,

Ring the bell for tea;

Three good wishes, 577

Three good kisses,

I will give to thee.

Addition is a botheration,

Subtraction is as bad;

Multiplication is vexation,

Division makes me sad;

The Rule of Three perplexes

And Practice drives me mad

Went to sea in a bowl, While to a listening owl,
When much to their astonish- The others read about the

The waves began to roll! The fish, and water fowl.
And if the bowl had stronger been,
My song had surely longer been.

Come again another day, Who could'nt pay his rent;
Little Johnny wants to play.
So on a lovely moonlight night,

Rain, rain, go away, .

On a wet and rainy day
Little Johnny cannot play. And off from town he went.

You parents all, that children
And you that have got none,
If you would have them safe
Pray keep them safe at home.

The rose is red, Come when you're called,
The violet is blue, Do what you're bid;
The gillyflower is sweet Shut the door after you,
And so are you: Never be chid.

You bade me say Hold up your head,
For a pair of new gloves Turn out your toes,
On Easter-day. And go smiling to bed.

Had a pain in his face, Twenty pounds will marry me:
So bad, he could not learn a

When bold Dicky Strong, I'm my mother's bouncing gal!

So odd, and so funny, All the lads come courting me;

Soon found his face growing

There was an old woman who lived in a shoe,
She had so many children she didn't know what to do;
She gave them some broth without any bread;
She whipp'd them all soundly and sent them to bed.

OLD KING COLE was a merry old soul,
And a merry old soul was he;
And he called for his pipe,
And he called for his bowl,
And he called for his fiddlers three.
And every fiddler, he had a fine fiddle,
And a very fine fiddle had he;
"Tweedle dee, tweedle dee," said the fiddlers;
"Oh, there's none so rare as can compare,
With King Cole and his fiddlers three."

Peter White
Will ne'er go right,
Would you know the reason why?
He follows his nose,
Wherever he goes,
And that stand all awry.

The Queen of Hearts
She made some tarts,
All on a summer's day.
The Knave of Hearts,
He stole the tarts,
And took them clean away.

The King of Hearts,
Called for the tarts.
And beat the Knave full sore.
The Knave of Hearts
Brought back the tarts,
And vow'd he'd steal no more.

Cry baby, cry! Darby and Joan
Put your finger in your eye, Were dressed in black,
And tell your mother, Sword and buckle

Keep your little dolly dry, And knee for knee,
And tell your mother, Turn about
It wasn't I. Darby's company.

Baked apples she sold,
and cranberry pies,
And she's the old woman
that never told lies.

There was a man in our town,
And he was wondrous wise;
He jump'd into a bramble bush,
And scratch'd out both his eyes;

And when he saw his eyes were out,
With all his might and main,
He jump'd into another bush,
And scratch'd them in again.

She lived upon nothing but victuals and drink;

And though victuals and drink were the chief of her diet,

This little Old Woman could never be quiet.

She put a mouse in a bag, ,

And sent it to mill.

When good king Arthur ruled his land,
He was a goodly king;
He stole three packs of barley meal,
To make a bag-pudding.

A bag-pudding the king did make, The king and queen did eat thereof,
And stuff'd it well with plums; And noblemen beside;
And in it put great lumps of fat, And what they could not eat that night,
As big as my two thumbs. The queen next morning fried.
