RHYMES FROM THE REAL MOTHER GOOSE, Volume 5


Volume 5 Illustrated by Blanche Fisher Wright GOOSEY, GOOSEY GANDER Goosey, goosey gander, Whither dost thou wander? Upstairs and downstairs And in my lady’s chamber. There I met an old man Who wouldn’t say his prayers; I took him by he left leg, And sent him down the stairs. NANCY DAWSON Nancy Dawson was so fine, She wouldn’t get up to serve the swine. She lies in bed till eight or nine, So it’s “Oh, poor Nancy Dawson.” And do ye ken Nancy Dawson, honey? The wife who sells the barley, honey? She won’t get up to feed her swine, And do ye ken Nancy Dawson, honey? 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. Then up Jack got and off did trot As fast as he could caper, To old Dame Dob, who patched his nob With vinegar and brown paper. THE CROOKED SIXPENCE There was a crooked man, and he went a cooked mile; He found a crooked sixpence beside a crooked stile; He bought a crooked cat, which caught a crooked mouse, And they all lived together in a little crooked house. JACKY AND HIS FIDDLE “Jacky, come and give me thy fiddle, If ever thou mean to thrive.” “Nay, I’ll not give my fiddle To any man alive. “If I should give my fiddle, They’ll think that I’ve gone mad; For many a joyous day My fiddle and I have had.” HOT CROSS BUNS Hot-cross buns! Hot-cross buns! One a penny, two a penny, Hot-cross buns! Hot-cross buns! Hot-cross buns! If ye have no daughters, Give them to your sons. Copyright © 2009 MightyBook, Inc. All Rights Reserved
