Tu whu, says the owl;

Caw, caw, says the crow; Quack, quack, says the duck;

And what sparrows say, you know.

So, with sparrows and owls,

With rats and with dogs, With ducks and with crows,

With cats and with hogs,

A fine song I have made,

To please you, my dear; And if it's well sung,

’T will be charming to hear.


PIDE a cock-horse to Banbury Cross,
EV To see an old lady upon a white horse;
Rings on her fingers, and bells on her toes,
And so she makes music wherever she goes.


NIDDLE, diddle, dumpling, my boy John

D Went to bed with his stockings on;
One shoe off, and one shoe on,
Diddle, diddle, dumpling, my son John..


AS I went through the garden-gap,
A Who should I meet but Dick Redcap!
A stick in his hand, a stone in his throat,-

AS I was going to St. Ives,'

Every wife had seven sacks,
Every sack had seven cats,
Every cat had seven kits:
Kits, cats, sacks, and wives,
How many were there going to St. Ives ?

A With a pair of bag-pipes under her arm;
She could sing nothing but fiddle-cum-fee,
The mouse has married the humble bee :
Pipe cat,-dance, mouse;
We'll have a wedding at our good house.

DUSSY cat, pussy cat, where have you been?
1 I've been up to London to look at the Queen.
Pussy cat, pussy cat, what did you there?
I frighten'd a little mouse under the chair.


NOME, my children, come away,

For the sun shines bright to-day;
Little children, come with me,
Birds, and brooks, and posies see;
Get your hats, and come away,
For it is a pleasant day.

Every thing is laughing, singing,
All the pretty flowers are springing;
See the kitten, full of fun,
Sporting in the brilliant sun;
Children, too, may sport and play,
For it is a pleasant day.

Bring the hoop, and bring the ball,
Come with happy faces all;
Let us make a merry ring,
Talk and laugh, and dance and sing.
Quickly, quickly, come away,
For it is a pleasant day.

And his bullets were made of lead;
He shot John Sprig through the middle of his wig,

And knocked it off his head.


T HAD a little dog, and they called him Buff,

I sent him to the shop to buy me some snuff;
But he lost the bag, and spill’d the snuff,
So take that cuff, and that's enough.
