THERE was a man in double deed, | And when the sky began to roar,

Who sowed his garden full of seed, 'Twas like a lion at the door; And when the seed began to grow,

And when the door began to crack, "Twas like a garden full of snow;

'Twas like a stick across your back; And when the snow began to fall, And when your back began to smart, 'Twas like a bird upon the wall;

'Twas like a pen-knife in your heart; And when the bird away did fly,

And when your heart began to bleed, 'Twas like an eagle in the sky; You're dead, and dead, and dead, in

deed.

THE Queen of Hearts,

She made some tarts,

All on a summer's day ;
The Knave of Hearts,
Ile stole the tarts,

Aud took them clean away.

The King of Hearts
Called for the tarts,

And beat the Knave full sore,
The Knave of Hearts
Brought back the tarts,

And vow'd he steal no more.

THE lion and the uni

corn Were fighting for the

crown, Some gave them white

bread, And some gave them

brown; Some gave them plum

cake, And sent them out of

town.

THE north wind doth blow,

And we shall have snow, And what will poor Robin do then ?

Poor thing!

He'll sit in a barn,
To kee himself warm,
Aud hide his head under his wing,

Poor thing!

TAFFY was a Welchman, Taffy was a thief ;

Taffy came to my house, and stole a piece of beef;
I went to Taffy's house, Taffy was not at home;
Taffy came to my house, and stole a marrow-bone;
I went to Taffy's house, Taffy was in bed,
I took the marrow-bone, and beat about his head.

THERE was an old woman who lived in a shoe,

She had so many children she didn't know what to do ;
She gave them some soup without any bread,
Then whipped them all soundly, and sent them to bed.
