I Had a Little Nut Tree from the book Sing a Song of Sixpence
Illustration by Walter Crane (1866)

Little_Nut_TreeHada_Little_Nut_Tree

I had a little nut tree,
Nothing would it bear
But a silver nutmeg,
And a golden pear;
The King of Spain's daughter
Came to visit me,
And all for the sake
Of my little nut tree.

Her dress was made of crimson,
Jet black was her hair,
She asked me for my nut tree
And my golden pear.
I said, "So fair a princess
Never did I see,
I'll give you all the fruit
From my little nut tree.


Old King Cole from The Baby's Opera
Illustration by Walter Crane (c1900)

Old_King_Cole_RC113Crane_Terracotta

Old King Cole was a merry old soul,
And a merry old soul was he;
He called for his pipe,
And he called for his bowl,
And he called for his fiddlers three.
Ev'ry fiddler had a fiddle,
And a very fine fiddle had he.
Tweedle dee, tweedle dee,
Tweedle dee, tweedle dee,
Tweedle dee, tweedle dee,
Went the fiddlers three,
Oh there's none so rare
As can compare,
With King Cole and his fiddlers three

Little Bo Peep has lost her sheep
And doesn’t know where to find them
Leave them alone
And they'll come home
Wagging their tails behind them

Little Bo Peep she searched for her sheep
But didn’t quite know how to find them
She looked everywhere
From here and to there
But still couldn’t think where to find them

Little Bo Peep began to weep
And lay down to rest for a while
She fell fast asleep
While counting her sheep
Then dreamt they came home with a smile

Little Bo Peep had fallen asleep
And dreamt that she was all alone
But when she awoke
And pulled back her cloak
She saw that her sheep had come home

Little Bo Peep had lost her sheep
And didn’t know where to find them
She left them alone
And they came home
Wagging their tails behind them

There was a little girl
by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

There was a little girl,
Who had a little curl,
Right in the middle of her forehead.
When she was good,
She was very good indeed,
But when she was bad she was horrid.

The queen was in the parlour,
Eating bread and honey.
(song of sixpence)

"I've been to London to look at the Queen."
"Pussy cate, pussy cate, what did you there?"
"I caught a little mouse under the chair."
(puss at court)

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

Baa, baa, black sheep,
Have you any wool?
Yes sir, yes sir,
Three bags full.

One for my master,
One for my dame,
And one for the little boy
Who lives down the lane.

ye_good_king_Arthur

When good King Arthur ruled this land,
He was a goodly king
He stole three pecks of barley meal,
To make a bag pudding.

a_bag_pudding

A bag pudding the Queen did make,
And stuffed it well with plums,
And in it put great lumps of fat
As big as my two thumbs.
The King and Queen did eat thereof,
And noblemen beside,
And what they could not eat that night
The Queen next morning fried.

Row, row, row your boat,
Gently down the stream.
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily,
Life is but a dream.

The Queen of Hearts
She made some tarts,
All on a summer's day;
The Knave of Hearts
He stole those tarts,
And took them clean away.
