LITTLE MISS MUFFET.

Little Miss Muffet sat on a tuffet,

Eating of curds and whey,
When up came a spider,
And sat down beside her,
And frightened Miss Muffet

away

LITTLE TOM TUCKER. Little Tom Tucker sings for his supper; What shall he sing for? White bread and

butter. How shall he cut it without e'er a knife ? How shall he marry without e'er a wife ?

14

Blow, wind, blow! and go, mill, go ! That the miller may grind his corn;

That the baker may take it,

And into rolls make it,
And send us some hot in the morn.

THE LION AND THE UNICORN,
The Lion and the Unicorn

Were fighting for the crown;

Some gave them white bread,

And some gave them brown;
Some
gave

them plumcake,
And sent them out of town.

16

CROSS PATCH.
Cross patch, draw the latch,

Sit by the fire and spin ;
Take a cup and drink it up,

Then call your neighbours in.

WHAT ARE LITTLE BOYS MADE OF ?

What are little boys made of? made of ?
Snaps, and snails, and puppy dogs' tails;
And that's what little boys are made of.
What are little girls made of? made of ?
Sugar and spice, and all things that are nice;
And that's what little girls are made of, made of.

SING A SONG OF SIXPENCE,

Sing a song of sixpence,

A pocket full of rye ;
Four-and-twenty blackbirds

Baked in a pie.

When the pie was opened

The birds began to sing ;
Was not that a dainty dish

To set before a king ?

The king was in his counting-house,

Counting out his money;
The queen was in the parlour,

Eating bread and honey.

The maid was in the garden,

Hanging out the clothes,
Down came a blackbird

And pecked off her nose.

KING ARTHUR.

When good King Arthur ruled this land,

He was a goodly king ;
He stole three pecks of barley meal,

To make a bag pudding.

A bag pudding the king did make,

And stuffed it well with plums; And in it put great lumps of fat,

As big as my two thumbs.

The king and queen did eat thereof,

And noblemen beside ;
And what they could not eat that night

The queen next morning fried.

See, saw, Margery Daw,
Johnny shall have a new master;
He shall have but a penny a day,
Because he can't work

any

faster.

See, saw, Margery Daw,
Sold her bed and lay upon straw ;
Was not she á dirty slut,
To sell her bed and lie in the dirt ?

Sce saw, sacra down,
Which is the way to London town?
One foot up, the other foot down,
This is the way to London town.

Poor Littleman cannot dance alone.

Come let's to bed, says Sleepy-head;

Tarry a while, says Slow;
Put on the pan, says greedy Nan,

We'll sup before we go.
