The man in the moon came down too soon

To inquire the way to Norridge; The man in the south, he burnt his mouth

With eating cold plum porridge.


When I was a little boy, I lived by myself,
And all the bread and cheese I got I put upon a shelf;
The rats and the mice, they made such a strife,
I was forced to go to London to buy me a wife.
The streets were so broad, and the lanes were so narrow,
I was forced to bring my wife home in a wheelbarrow;
The wheelbarrow broke, and my wife had a fall,
And down came the wheelbarrow, wife and all.

Charley Wag,
Ate the pudding and left the bag.

Sing, Sing! - What shall I sing? The Cat's run away with the Pudding-Bag String.

When I was a little boy, I washed my mammy's dishes, Now I am a great boy I roll in golden riches.


Bye, Baby bunting,
Father's gone a hunting,

Mother's gone a milking,

Sister's gone a silking,
And Brother's gone to buy

a skin,
To wrap the Baby bunting in,

'Twas once upon a time, when Jenny Wren was young,
So daintily she danced and so prettily she sung,
Robin Redbreast lost his heart, for he was a gallant bird;
So he doffed his hat to Jenny Wren, requesting to be heard.
0, dearest Jenny Wren, if you will but be mine,
You shall feed on cherry-pie and drink new currant wine,
I'll dress you like a goldfinch or any peacock gay;
So, dearest Jen, if you'll be mine, let us appoint the day.
Jenny blushed behind herfan and thus declared her mind:
Since, dearest Bob, I love you well, I take your offer kind;
Cherry-pie is very nice and so is currant wine,
But I must wearmy plain brown gownand never go too fine.
Cushy Cow bonny, let down your milk,
And I will give you a gown of silk,


A gown of silk and a silver tee,
If you'll let down your milk to me.
