There was an old Woan
There was an old woman, as
There was an old woman, as
I've heard tell,
ie went to market her eggs
for to sell;
Ie went to market all on a
market day,
id she fell asleerpnn +Ti ln,'



There came by a pedd -.I-m w name was Stout,
He cut her petticoats all roidsbout;
He cuter petticoats to her little knees,
Which m4 he little woman shiver and freeze.
fli- -
When the little woman began to awake,
She began to shiver; ,. s gan to shake;
She began to wonder, aid~ n to cry,
"0 deary, deary me, this' never be I!",

"But if it be I, as I suppose it be,

I've a little dog at home, and he'll know me:
If it be I, he'll wag his little tail,

And if be not I, he'll bark and wail."

Home went the little woman, all in the dark,

Up jumped the little dog, and began to bark;

He began to bark, so she began to cry,

"0 deary, deary me, this never can be I!"

Young Lambs to selle.

Young lambs to sell, Yodug lambs to sell,

I'f I'd as much money as I could tell,

:I never would cry young
Slambs to sell.

The Cat's in the

Great A,
bouncing B,
The cats in the cupboard and can't see me.

Jump he went over

Swim, Swan, Swim.

The Swan swam over the stream,

Swim, Swan, swim!

The Swan swam back again,

Well swum, Swan!

Dickery, dickery, dock,

The Mouse ran up the clock,

The clock struck one, and down it ran,

Dickery, dickery, dock!

A Jolly Jack Tar.

A jolly Jack tar and a nice black pig,
Once began to dance a jig.
They jigged;'and they jigged and they jumped all day,
S And you'll find
them jigging
still for all I
can say.

My master's lost his fiddle stick,
And doesn't know

The Man in the Moon.
The Man in the Moon
Came tumbling down
And asked the way to Norwich.
He went by the south,
And burnt his mouth
With eating cold pease porridge.

Xerxes, Yeo

and Zachary Cram.

Here are Xerxes, Yeo and

Zachary Cram,

Those three bad boys who stole

So I really don't think they know

Diddledee, Diddledee, Dumpty,
The cat ran up the plum-tree!.
Give her a crown, and fetch /

When the Wind.
When the Wind is in the east,
'Tis neither good for man nor beast.
When the Wind is in the north
The skiful fisher goes not forth.
When the Wind is in the south,
It blows the bait in the fishes' mouth.
SWhen the Wind is in the West
Then the Wind is at its best

Vain Miss Violet.

Vain Miss Violet,
there she goes "
What is she vain of?
Nobody knows.

Goosey, Goosey, Gander.
Whither will you wander,

Upstairs, downstairs,
SAnd in my lady's chamber.

Goosey, Goosey, Gander.

Mary, Mary.

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

Deedle, Deedle, Dumpling.

Deedle, Deedle, dumpling, my son John,
He went to bed with his stockings on;
One shoe off, and one shoe on,
Deedle, deedle, dumpling, my son John.

Richard and Robert.

Richard and Robert were two lazy men,
They lay in bed till the clock struck ten,

Up jumps Richard and looks at the sky,
,,What ho! brother Robert, the sun's very high,

You go first with bottle and bag,
And I'll follow after on little Jack nag.'
