ROCK-A-BYE, baby, thy cradle is green;

A;

Father's a nobleman, mother's a queen; And Betty's a lady, and wears a gold ring; And Johnny's a drummer, and drums for the king.

23.

THE girl in the lane, that could n't speak plain,

Cried, gobble, gobble, gobble ;
The man on the hill, that could n't stand still,

Went hobble, hobble, hobble.

24.

HERE'S-a poor widow from Babylon,

With six poor children all alone;
One can bake, and one can brew,
One can shape, and one can sew,
One can sit at the fire and spin,
One can bake a cake for the king :
Come choose you east, come choose you west,
Come choose the one that you love best.

COME hither

, little puppy dog,

OME

I'll give you a new collar,
If you will learn to read your book,

And be a clever scholar.
No, no! replied the puppy dog,

I've other fish to fry;
For I must learn to guard your house,

And bark when thieves come nigh. With a tingle, tangle, titmouse !

Robin knows great A,
And B, and C, and D, and E,

F, G, H, I, J, K.

[graphic]

Come hither, pretty cockatoo,

Come and learn your letters ;
And you shall have a knife and fork

To eat with, like your betters.

Come hither, little pussy cat,

If you 'll your grammar study, I'll give you silver clogs to wear

Whene'er the gutter 's muddy.
No! whilst I grammar learn, says puss,

Your house will in a trice
Be overrun, from top to bottom,

With flocks of rats and mice.
With a tingle, tangle, titmouse !

Robin knows great A,
And B, and C, and D, and E,

F, G, H, I, J, K.

[graphic]

Come hither, then, good little boy,

And learn your alphabet, And you a pair of boots and spurs,

Like your papa's, shall get. O yes! I'll learn my alphabet;

And when I well can read, Perhaps papa will give me, too,

A pretty long-tail'd steed.
With a tingle, tangle, titmouse !

Robin knows great A,
And B, and C, and D, and E,

F, G, H, I, J, K.
