Little Miss Muffet

Little Miss Muffet Sat on a tuffet,
Eating some curds and whey.
Along came a spider,
And sat down beside her,
And frightened Miss Muffet away.


Jack Sprat

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


Little Tom Tucker

Little Tom Tucker Sings for his supper.
What shall he eat?
White bread and butter.
How will he cut it
Without e'er a knife?
How will he be married
Without e'er a wife?
