And could'nt tell where to find To ride a mile away ;

her, She whipped him, she slashed him, Till she came home both lame

She rode him through the mire; and blind, I would not lend my pony now

With never a tail behind her. For all the lady's hire.


HAD a little doll, the prettiest

ever seen,
She washed up the dishes, and kept

the house clean.
She went to the mill, to fetch me

some flour,
And always got it home in less

than an hour.
She baked me my bread, she

brewed me my ale,
She sat by the fire, and told me a


IF all the world were apple pie,

And all the sea was ink,
And all the trees were bread and

What should we have for drink?

LITTLE Bo-peep has lost

her sheep, And can't tell where to

find them, Leave them alone, and

they'll come home, Dragging their tails be

hind them. Little Bo-peep fell fast

asleep, And dreamt she heard

them bleating; But when she awoke, she

found it a joke, For they were still fleeting. Then up she took her little

crook, Determined for to find

them; She found them indeed, butit

made her heart bleed, For they'd left all their

tails behind 'ern.


ITTLE boy blue, come blow up your

horn, The sheep's in the

meadow, the cow's

in the corn. Where is the little boy,

minding the sheep, Under the haycock

fast asleep!

ITTLE Robin Red-breast sat upon a tree,

Up went Pussy-cat, and down went he;
Down came Pussy-cat, and away Robin ran;
Says little Robin Red-breast, “Catch me if you can."
Little Robin Red-breast jumped upon a spade,
Pussy-cat jumped after him, and made him afraid ;
Little Robin chirp'd and sung, and what did Pussy say ?
Pussy-cat said “Mew, mew, mew," and Robin flew away.

LITTLE Anne Etticoat

In a white petticoat,
And a red nose;
The longer she stands,
The shorter she grows.

[A Candle.]

ITTLE Tee Wee,

He went to sea,
In an open boat;
And while afloat
The little boat bended,
And my story's ended.

LITTLE Mary Ester,

Sat upon a tester,
Eating of curds and whey;

There came a large spider,

And sat down beside her,
And frighten'd poor Mary away.
