1. Georgie Porgie

Georgie Porgie pudding and pie,
Kissed the girls and made them cry.
When the boys came out to play,
Georgie Porgie ran away.
 

2. Hot Cross Buns

Hot cross buns! Hot cross buns!
One a penny, two a penny,
hot cross buns.
If you have no daughters,
give them to your sons.
One a penny, two a penny,
hot cross buns.


3. Jack and Jill

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 Jack got and home he ran,
As fast as he could caper.
There his mother bound his head,
With vinegar and brown paper.
 

4. Ladybird

Ladybird, ladybird,
Fly away home.
Your house is on fire,
And your children all gone.
All except one,
And that's little Ann,
She has crept under
The warming pan.
 

5. Little Jack Horner

Little Jack Horner sat in the corner,
Eating his Christmas pie.
He put in his thumb and pulled out a plum,
And said "What a good boy am I!"
 

6. Lucy Lockett

Lucy Lockett lost her pocket,
Kitty Fisher found it.
Not a penny was there in it,
Only ribbon round it.
 

7. Mary Mary Quite Contrary

Mary, Mary, quite contrary,
How does your garden grow?
With silver bells and cockle shells,
And pretty maids all in a row.
 

8. Old Mother Hubbard

Old Mother Hubbard,
Went to the cupboard,
To get her poor doggy a bone.
When she got there,
The cupboard was bare,
So the poor little doggy had none.
 

9. Pat-A-Cake, Pat-A-Cake

Pat-a-cake, pat-a cake, baker's man,
Bake me a cake as fast as you can.
Pat it and prick it, and mark it with B.
And put it in the oven for baby and me.
 

10. Rock A Bye Baby

Rock a bye baby, on the tree top,
When the wind blows the cradle will rock.
When the bough breaks the cradle will fall,
And mumma will catch you, cradle and all.
 

11. Rub-A-Dub-Dub

Rub-a-dub-dub,
Three men in a tub,
And how do you think they got there?
The butcher, the baker, the candlestick-maker,
They all jumped out of a rotten potato.
T'was enough to make a fish stare.
 

12. Simple Simon

Simple Simon met a pieman going to the fair.
Said simple Simon to the pieman, let me taste your ware.
Said the pieman to simple Simon, show me first your penny.
Said simple Simon to the pieman sir, I have not any.
 

13. Sing A Song Of Sixpence

Sing a song of sixpence, a pocket full of rye;
Four and twenty blackbirds baked in a pie.
When the pie was opened, the birds began to sing,
Wasn't that a dainty dish to set before the king?

The king was in the counting-house, counting out his money;
The queen was in the parlour, eating bread and honey;
The maid was in the garden, hanging out the clothes,
When down came a blackbird and pecked off her nose.
 

14. Three Blind Mice

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 thing in your life,
As three blind mice.
 

15. Twinkle Twinkle Little Star

Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are!
Up above the world so high,
Like a diamond in the sky.

When the blazing sun is gone,
When he nothing shines upon,
When you shower your little light,
Twinkle, twinkle, all the night.

Then the traveller in the dark,
Thanks you for your tiny spark,
He could not see which way to go,
If you did not twinkle so.


16. Wee Willie Winkie

Wee Willie Winkie runs through the town,
Upstairs and downstairs in his nightgown.
Tapping at the window and crying through the lock,
Are all the children in their beds, it's past eight o'clock.
