Some little mice sat in a barn to spin, Pussy came by and popped her head in ; “Shall I come in and cut your threads off ?” “O! no, kind sir, you will snap our heads off !”

PUSSY

I like little pussy,

Her coat is so warm ; And if I don't hurt her

She'll do me no harm. So I'll not pull her tail,

Nor drive her away, But pussy and I

Very gently will play.

WHAT ARE EYES FOR?

What are eyes for ?

To see with.
What are ears for ?

To hear with.
What is the tongue for ?

To talk with.
What are teeth for?

To eat with.
What is the nose for ?

To smell with.
What are legs for ?

To walk with.

THE FACE.

Brow bender,
Eye peeper,
Nose smeller,
Mouth eater,
Chin chopper.

Knock at the door,

Peep in;
Lift up the latch,

Walk in.

SONG SET TO FIVE FINGERS.

1. This little pig went to market; 2. This little pig staid at home; 3. This little pig had roast meat ; 4. This little pig had none; 5. This little pig cried “Wee, wee,

I can't find my way home.”

HERE AM I.

Here am I, little jumping Joan; When nobody's with me

I'm always alone.

DO YOU GUESS IT IS I?

I am a little thing,

I am not very high,
I laugh, dance, and sing,

And sometimes I cry.

I have a little head,

All covered o'er with hair, And I hear what is said

With my two ears there.

On my two feet I walk.

I run, too, with ease.
With my little tongue I talk

Just as much as I please.

I have ten fingers, too,

And just as many toes ;
I have eyes to see through,

And but one little nose.

I've a mouth full of teeth,

Where my bread and milk goes in ; And close by, underneath,

Is my little round chin.

What is this little thing,

Not very, very high,
That can laugh, dance, and sing ?

Do you guess it is I?

HEY! DIDDLE, DIDDLE.

Hey! diddle, diddle,

The cat and the fiddle,
The cow jumped over the moon;
The little dog laugh'd

To see such craft,
And the dish ran away with the spoon.

CUSHEY COW BONNY.

Cushey cow bonny, let down thy milk,
And I will give thee a gown of silk;
A gown of silk and a silver tee,
If thou wilt let down thy milk to me.
