The man in the wilderness,

Asked me,
How many strawberries

Grew in the sea ?'
S I answered 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,
Orelse I'll beat you till you're dead.

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.
