RHYMES FROM THE REAL MOTHER GOOSE, Volume 2
Illustrated by Blanche Fisher Wright
Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall;
All the King's horses, and all the King's men
Cannot put Humpty Dumpty together again.
THREE BLIND MICE
Three blind mice! 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?
Ride a cock horse to Banbury Cross,
To see an old lady upon a white horse.
Rings on her fingers and bells on her toes,
She shall have music wherever she goes.
Mary, mary quite contrary,
How does your garden grow?
Silver bells and cockle-shells,
And pretty maids all of a row.
THE CAT AND THE FIDDLE
Hey, diddle, diddle!
The cat and the fiddle,
The cow jumped over the moon;
The little dog laughed
To see such a sport,
And the dish ran away with the spoon.
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;
Was that not a dainty dish
To set before the king?
The king was in the counting-house,
Counting out his money;
The queen was in the parlor,
Eating bread and honey.
The maid was in the garden,
Hanging out the clothes,
When down came a blackbird
And snapped at her nose.
