T ITTLE Tommy Tacket

Sits upon his cracket;
Half a yard of cloth will make him coat and

Make him coat and jacket,

Breeches to the knee;
And if you will not have him, you may let

him be.



I WILL sing you a song,

Though it is not very long,
Of the woodcock and the sparrow,
Of the little dog that burned his tail,
And the little boy that must be whipp'd to-


THREE blind mice,

1 See, how they run!
They all ran after the farmer's wife,
Who cut off their tails with a carving knife.
Did ever you hear such a thing in your life

As three blind mice?

MARY, Mary, quite contrary,

How does your garden grow?
Silver bells, and cockle-shells,

And columbines all of a row.


LARK, hark, the dogs do bark,
1. Beggars are coming to town;
Some in jags, some in rags,

And some in velvet gowns.

LUSH-A-BYE a ba-lamb,

Hush-a-bye a milk-cow;
You shall have a little stick

To beat the naughty bow-wow.

158. DAFFY-DOWN-DILLY has come up to town

In a yellow petticoat and a green gown.

- LUB a dub dub,

11 Three men in a tub;
And how do you think they got there?

The butcher, the baker,

The candlestick-maker, They all jump'd out of a roasted potato. 'Twas enough to make a man stare!


Two little dogs

1 Sat by the fire
Over a fender of coal-dust;

Said one little dog

To the other little dog,
If you don't talk, why I must.


HANDY Spandy Jack-a-dandy

Loved plum-cake and sugar-candy;
He bought some at a grocer's snop,
And out he came, hop, hop, hop.


RROW, brow, brinkie;

Eye, eye, winkie;
Nose, nose, nopper;
Mouth, mouth, merry;
Cheek, cheek, cherry;

Chin, chin, chopper.

Do you go before
D With your bottle and bag,
And I will come after
On little Jack Nag.



THERE was an old woman sat spin-
1 ning,
And that's the first beginning :
She had a calf,
And that's half;
She took it by the tail,
And threw it over the wall,
And that's all.
