Birds of a feather flock together

Birds of a feather flock together,
And so will pigs and swine;
Rats and mice can have their choice
And so will I have mine.


Cobbler, cobbler mend my shoe

Cobbler, cobbler mend my shoe,
Get it done by half past two;
Stitch it up and stitch it down,
Then I'll give you half a crown.


Dear ! What can the matter be ?

Dear, dear ! What can the matter be ?
Two old women got up in an apple tree;
One came down
And one stayed till Saturday.


For every evil under the sun

For every evil under the sun,
There is a remedy,
Or there is none.
If there be one try to find it,
If there be none, never mind it.


To Market, to market

To market, to market, to buy a plum cake,
Home again, home again, market is late;
To market, to market, to buy a plum bun,
Home again, home again, market is done.


Jack Sprat

Jack Sprat could eat no fat,
His wife could eat no lean;
And so between them both,
They licked the platter clean.

Cackle, cackle, Mother Goose

Cackle, cackle, Mother Goose
Have you any feathers loose ?
Truly have I, pretty fellow,
Half enough to fill a pillow.
Here are quills, take one or two,
And down to make a bed for you.


Cocks crow each morning

Cocks crow each morning to tell us to rise,
And he who lies late will never be wise
For early to bed and early to rise
Is the way to be healthy,wealthy and wise.


Elizabeth, Elspeth, Betsy and Bess,

Elizabeth, Elspeth, Betsy and Bess,
They all went together to seek a bird's nest;
They found a bird's nest with five eggs in it,
They all took one and left four in it.


Georgy Porgy, pudding and pie

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


Elsie Marley

Elsie Marley has grown so fine,
She won't get up to serve the swine;
But lies in bed til eight or nine,
And surely she does take her time.


Daffy Down Ditty

Daffy Down Dity
has come up to town
In a yellow petticoat
and a green gown.
