Ladybird, Ladybird, fly away home,
Your house is on fire,
Your children shall burn!
there was a crooked man and he walked a crooked mile,
he found a crooked sixpence upon a crooked stile.
he bought a crooked cat, which caught a crooked mouse.
and they all lived together in a little crooked house.
a wise old owl lived in an oak
the more he saw the less he spoke
the less he spoke the more he heard
why can't we all be like that wise old bird?
three blind mice. three blind mice.
see how they run. see how they run.
they all ran after the farmer's wife,
who cut off their tails with a carving knife,
did you ever see such a sight in your life,
as three blind mice.
little boy blue come blow your horn,
the sheep's in the meadow the cow's in the corn.
but where's the boy who looks after the sheep?
he's under a haystack
will you wake him? no, not i - for if i do, he's sure to cry.
there once were two cats of kilkenny,
each thought there was one cat too many;
so they fought and they fit,
and they scratched and they bit,
till excepting their nails
and the tips of their tails
instead of two cats
there weren't any.
pussycat, pussycat, where have you been?
I've been to london to visit the queen.
pussycat, pussycat, what did you there?
i frightened a little mouse under her chair.
there was a woman lived under the hill,
and if she's not gone she lives there still.
baked apples she sold, and cranberry pies,
and she's the woman that never told lies.
curly locks, curly locks,
will you be mine?
you shall not wash dishes,
nor feed the swine,
but sit on a cushion
and sew a fine seam,
and sup upon strawberries,
sugar, and cream.
eeny, meeny, miny, moe
catch a tiger by the toe
if he hollers let him go,
eeny, meeny, miny, moe
my Mother told me
to pick the very best one
and you are not it.
out goes one
out goes two
out goes another one
and that is you.
birds of a feather flock together,
and so will pigs and swine;
rats and mice will have their choice,
and so will i have mine.
as white as milk and not milk,
as green as grass and not grass,
as red as blood and not blood,
as black as soot and not soot.
