DIDDLETY, diddlety, dumpty,

The cat ran up the plum-tree;

To fetch her down,
Diddlety; diddlety, dumpty.

DING, dong, bell

Pussy 's in the well!
Who put her in?
Little Tommy Lin.
Who pulled her out?

Little Tommy Stout.
What a naughty boy was that,
Who tried to drown poor pussy cat,
That never did him any harm,
But kill'd the mice in his father's barn!

ONE, two, three, four, five,


I caught a hare alive;
Six, seven, eight, nine, ten
I let it go again.

THERE was a man of Thessaly,

And he was wondrous wise,
He jump'd into a quickset hedge,

And scratch'd out both his eyes;
But when he saw his eyes were out

With all his might and main
He jump'd into another hedge,

And scratch'd them in again.

RAIN, rain, go away,


Come again another day;
Little Johnny wants to play.


COME, good Mr. Watts,


We are troubled with rats,

drive them out of the house?
We have mice too in plenty,
That feed in the pantry;
But let them stay

And nibble away;
What harm's in a little brown mouse?





HAD a little hobby horse,

And it was dapple gray ;
Its head was made of pea-straw,

Its tail was made of hay.
I sold it to an old woman

For a copper groat;
And I'll not sing my song again

Without a new coat.

THREE children sliding on the ice

Upon a summer's day,
As it fell out, they all fell in,

The rest they ran away.
Now had these children been at home,

Or sliding on dry ground,
Ten thousand pounds to one penny,

They had not all been drown'd.

[ocr errors]

You parents all that children have,

And you that have got none,
If you would have them safe abroad,

Pray, keep them safe at home.



ACK and Jill went up the hill,

To fetch a pail of water;
Jack fell down and broke his crown,

And Jill came tumbling after.

H, dear, what can the matter be!
Two old women got up in an apple-tree;

One came down,
And the other staid up till Saturday.


HAVE you ever heard of Billy Pringle's pig ?

It was very little, and not very big;
When it was alive it lived in clover,
But now it is dead, and that's all over.
Billy Pringle he lay down and died;
Betsy Pringle she sat down and cried.

So there's an end of all the three,
Billy Pringle he, Betsy Príngle she, and poor little

piggy wigee.


UMPTY Dumpty sat on a wall,

Humpty Dumpty had a great fall;
All the king's horses and all the king's men
Could not set Humpty Dumpty up again.
