Bow, wow, wow
Bow, wow, wow!
Whose dog art thou?
"I'm little Tom Tinker's dog,
Bow, wow, wow!" 

Goosey, Goosey, Gander

GOOSEY, goosey, gander, 
Whither will you wander? 
Upstairs and downstairs, 
And in my lady's chamber! 

Ninny Nanny Netticoat

Ninny Nanny Netticoat, 
In a white petticoat, 
With a red nose, -- 
The longer she stands, 
The shorter she grows. 

This pig went to market

THIS pig went to market; 
This pig stayed at home; 
This pig had a bit of meat; 
And this pig had none; 
This little pig cried 
Wee! wee! wee! 
I can't find my way home. 

We have a Little Garden

WE have a little garden,
A garden of our own, 
And every day we water there 
The seeds that we have sown.
WE love our little garden,
And tend it with such care, 
You will not find a faced leaf
Or blighted blossom there. 

Cecily Parsley

CECILY PARSLEY 
lived in a pen, 
And brewed good ale 
for gentlemen; 
GENTLEMEN came 
every day, 
Till Cecily Parsley 
ran away. 

Three blind mice

Three blind mice, three blind mice, 
See how they run! 
They all run after the farmer's wife, 
And she cut off their tails with a carving knife, 
Did ever you see such a thing in your life 
As three blind mice!
