The man in the wilderness,


Asked me,

How many strawberries

Grew in the sea ?
Aku Ianswered him as I thoughtgood,

As many red herrings

As grew in the wood.

Little Robin Redbreast

Sat upon a tree,
Up went the Pussy-Cat,

And down went he ;
Down came Pussy-Cat,

Away Robin ran,
Sayslittle Robin Redbreast-

Catch me if you can.
Little Robin Redbreast jumped upon a spade,

Pussy-Cat jumped after him, and then he was afraid. Little Robin chirped and sung, and what did pussy say? Pussy-Cat said Mew,mew mew,—and Robin flew away.


Sing a song of sixpence, a bag full of rye,
Four and twenty blackbirds baked in a pie:
When the pie was opened, the birds began to sing;

And wasn't this a dainty dish to set before the king ? The king was in the parlour, counting out his money; The queen was in the kitchen, eating bread and honey; The maid was in the garden, hanging out the clothes, There came a little blackbird and nipt off her nose.

Lady-bird, Lady-bird,
Fly away home,
Your house is on fire,
Your children will burn.

One, Two — buckle my shoe;
Three, Four - open the door ;
Five, Six — pick up sticks;
Seven, Eight — lay them straight;
Nine, Ten - a good fat hen;
Eleven, Twelve — I hope you're well.
Thirteen, Fourteen — draw the curtain ;
Fifteen, Sixteen - the maid's in the kitchen;
Seventeen, Eighteen - she's in waiting.
Nineteen, Twenty - my stomach's empty.

Snail, Snail,

Come out of your hole,
Or else I'll beat you black as a coal.

Snail, Snail,

Put out your head,
Or else I'll beat you till you're dead.
