Oh, what a sweet little white Mouse !
Oh, what a dear little bright Mouse !

With his eyes of pink,

Going winky-wink,
Oh, what a sweet little white Mouse.


My little Pink,

I suppose you think,
I cannot do without you,

I'll let you know

Before I go,
How little I care about you.

Tell tale tit, your tongue shall be slit,
And all the dogs in our town shall have a bit.

Saturday night shall be my whole care
To powder my locks and curl my hair;
On Sunday morning my love will come in
And marry me then with a pretty gold ring.


Dear Sensibility, O la!
I heard a little lamb cry, baa !
Says I, “So you have lost mamna ? "

“ Ah!”

The little lamb, as I said so, Frisking about the fields did go, And, frisking, trod upon my toe.


Pease porridge hot, pease porridge cold,
Pease porridge in the pot nine days old.

Can you spell that with four letters ?
Yes, I can—THAT.


There was a man in our town,

And he was wond'rous wise,
He jump'd into a bramble-bush,

And scratch'd out both his eyes;
And when he saw his eyes were out,

With all his might and main
He jump'd into another bush,

And scratch'd them in again.

As I was going to sell my eggs,
I met a thief with bandy legs,
Bandy legs and crooked toes,
I tript up his heels and he fell on his nose.

Old mistress McShuttle

Lived in a coal-scuttle,
Along with her dog and her cat;
What they ate I can't tell,

But 'tis known very well,
That none of the party were fat.


Hen. Cock, cock, cock, cock,

I've laid an egg,

Am I to gang ba-are-foot ?
Cock. Hen, hen, hen, hen,

I've been up and down,
To every shop in town,
And cannot find a shoe
To fit your foot,
If I'd crow my hea-art out.

(To be said very quickly, except the last two words in each verse, which are to be screamed "out.)
