  1. Jack and Jill went up the hill to fetch a pail of water
    Jack fell down and broke his crown
    And Jill came tumbling after.
    Up got Jack, and home did trot
    As fast as he could caper
    He went to bed and bound his head
    With vinegar and brown paper.

  2. Little Boy Blue

    Little Boy Blue,
    Come blow your horn,
    The sheep’s in the meadow,
    The cow’s in the corn;
    Where is that boy
    Who looks after the sheep?
    Under the haystack fast asleep.
    Will you wake him?
    Oh no, not I,
    For if I do he will surely cry.

  3. Goosey, Goosey Gander

    Goosey goosey gander,
    Whither shall I wander?
    Upstairs and downstairs
    And in my lady’s chamber.
    There I met an old man
    Who wouldn’t say his prayers,
    So I took him by his left leg
    And threw him down the stairs

    Go to sleep, my little baby
    When you wake, you shall have

    Poor little baby, crying Mama
    Birds and the butterflies
    Flutter round his eyes
    Poor little baby crying Mamma.

    Go to sleep, my little baby
    When you wake, you shall have

    But the one little duck with the feather on her back,
    She led the others with a quack quack quack.

    A wibble wobble, wibble wobble, to and fro.

    • LITTLE COTTAGE IN THE WOODS
      A little cottage in a woods
      A little man at the window stood
      Saw a bunny hopping by
      Knocking at the door.

      ‘Come little rabbit, come inside,
      Happy we will be.’

    Go hop, hop, hop,

    To say “How do you do?”
    But he shook his little tail,
    And a way he flew!

  18. Pat-a-cake, pat-a-cake, baker’s man,

    Bake me a cake as fast as you can.

    And top with candies here and there,

    Pat-a-cake, pat-a-cake, baker’s man,

    Bake me a cake as fast as you can.

    Roll it, and prick it, and mark it with a “B,”

    And put it in the oven for Baby and me!
