Hannah Bantry

Hannah Bantry,
In the pantry,
Gnawing at a mutton bone.
How she gnawed,
How she clawed it,
When she found herself alone.


Here sits the Lord Mayor

Here sits the Lord Mayor,
Here sits his two men,
Here sits the cock,
Here sits the hen,
Here sits the little chickens,
Here they run in,
Chin chopper, chin chopper,
Chin chopper chin.


Hush - a - bye baby

Thy mammy has gone to the mill,
To get some meal to bake a cake,
So pray, my dear baby, lie still.

Your tongue shall be slit:
And all the dogs in town

Here we go round, round, roundy.

I had a little husband

I had a little husband
No bigger than my thumb,
I put him in a pint pot,
And there I bid him drum;

I bought a little handkerchief
To wipe his little nose,
And a pair of little garters
To tie his little hose.


I see the moon

I see the moon
And the moon sees me;
God bless the moon
And God bless me.


Little Tommy Tittemouse

Little Tommy Tittemouse,
Lived in a little house;
He caught fishes,
In other peoples ditches.


Little Betty Blue

Little Betty Blue,
Has lost her holiday shoe.
What will poor Betty do ?
Why, give her another,
And match the other,
Then she will walk in two,
