Mary Had A Little Lamb

The Three Little Kittens

Tom, the Piper's Son

Little Bo-Peep has lost her sheep,
And can't tell where to find them;
Leave them alone, and they'll come home,
Wagging their tails behind them.

Curly locks! Curly locks! Wilt thou be mine?
Thou shalt not wash dishes, nor yet feed the swine;
But sit on a cushion and sew a fine seam,
And feed upon strawberries, sugar, and cream!

Hoddley, poddley, puddle and fogs,
Cats are to marry the poodle dogs;
Cats in blue jackets and dogs in red hats,
What will become of the mice and the rats?

HEY DIDDLE DIDDLE (click to hear midi file)

Hey, diddle, diddle, the cat and the fiddle,
The cow jumped over the moon;
The little dog laughed to see such sport,
While the dish ran away with the spoon.

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall;
All the king's horses and all the king's men
Couldn't put Humpty together again.

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

LITTLE BOY BLUE (click to hear midi file)

Little Boy Blue, come blow your horn,
The sheep's in the meadow, the cow's in the corn.
Where is the boy who looks after the sheep?
He's under a haystack fast asleep.
Will you wake him? No, not I,
For if I do, he's sure to cry.

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

Old King Cole was a merry old soul,
And a merry old soul was he;
He called for his pipe, he called for his glass,
And he called for his fiddlers three.

Peter, Peter, pumpkin eater,
Had a wife, and couldn't keep her;
He put her in a pumpkin shell,
And there he kept her very well.

Rub a dub dub,
Three men in a tub;
And who do you think they be?
The butcher, the baker,
The candlestick maker;
Turn 'em out, knaves all three!

The queen of hearts, She made some tarts,
All on a summer's day;
The knave of hearts, He stole those 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 vowed he'd steal no more.

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;
Then whipped them all soundly and put them to bed.

Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are!
Up above the world so high,
Like a diamond in the sky!

Wee Willie Winkie runs through the town,
Upstairs and downstairs in his nightgown,
Tapping at the window, crying through the lock,
"Are the babies in their beds,
For it's now ten o'clock?"

Little Jack Horner
Sat in the corner
Eating a Christmas pie;
He put in his thumb,
And pulled out a plum,
And said, What a good boy am I!

There was a crooked man,
and he went a crooked mile,
He found a crooked sixpense
against a crooked stile,
He bought a crooked cat,
which caught a crooked mouse,
And they all lived together
in a crooked little house.

Sing a song of sixpence,
A pocket full of rye;
Four-and-twenty blackbirds
Baked in a pie.
When the pie was opened,
The birds began to sing;
Wasn't that a dainty dish
To set before the king?

The king was in his counting-house,
Counting out his money;
The queen was in the parlour,
Eating bread and honey.
The maid was in the garden,
Hanging out the clothes,
When down came a blackbird
And pecked off her nose.

They sent for the king's doctor,
Who sewed it on again,
And he sewed it on so neatly,
The seam was never seen.

Simple Simon met a pie man,
Going to the fair;
Says Simple Simon to the pie man,
"Let me taste your ware."
Says the pie man unto Simon,
"First give me a penny."
Says Simple Simon to the pie man,
"I have not got any."
Simple Simon went a-fishing
For to catch a whale;
And all the water he had got
Was in his mother's pail.
