Mother Goose

Little Miss Muffet
Sat on a tuffet,
Eating her curds and whey;
When down came a spider,
And sat down beside her,
And frightened Miss Muffet away.

Down at the station, early in the morning,
See the little puffer-billies all in a row;
See the engine driver pull his little lever
Puff puff, peep peep, off we go!

Baa, baa, black sheep,
have you any wool?
Yes, sir, yes, sir,
three bags full.
One for the master,
and one for the dame,
And one for the little boy
who lives down the lane.

Handy spandy, sugary candy,
Frenchy almond rock;
Bread and butter for your supper,
That is all your mother's got.

Hickory, dickory, dock,
The mouse ran up the clock.
The clock struck one,
The mouse ran down,
Hickory, dickory, dock.

Hickety, pickety, my black hen,
She lays eggs for gentlemen;
Gentlemen come every day
To see what my black hen doth lay.

If I had a donkey
that wouldn't go,
D'you think I'd beat him?
Oh, no, no.
I'd put him in a barn
and give him some corn,
The best little donkey
that ever was born.

One, two, three, four,
Mary's at the cottage door,
Five, six, seven, eight,
Eating cherries off a plate.

The wind, the wind, the wind blows high,
The rain comes scattering down the sky.
She is handsome, she is pretty,
She is the girl of the golden city.
She goes a-courting, one, two, three,
Please and tell me who is she.

Handy Spandy, Jack-a-Dandy,
Loved plum cake and sugar candy.
He bought some at a grocer's shop,
And out he came, hop, hop, hop, hop.

Lilies are white, Rosemary's green,
When I am king, You shall be queen.
Roses are red, Violets are blue,
Sugar is sweet And so are you.

Little Tommy Tucker Sings for his supper.
What shall we give him? Brown bread and butter.
How shall he cut it Without e'er a knife?
How shall he marry Without e'er a wife?

Ding dong bell,
Pussy's in the well.
Who put her in?
Little Johnny Green.
Who pulled her out?
Little Tommy Stout.
What a naughty boy was that
To try to drown poor pussy cat,
Who never did him any harm,
But killed the mice in his father's barn.
