Moother Goose Nursery Rhymes, Vol. 1

Hush-a-bye

Hush-a-bye, baby, on the tree top!
When the wind blows the cradle will rock;
When the bough breaks the cradle will fall;
Down will come baby, bough, cradle and all.

Shall We Go A-Shearing?

“Old woman, old woman, shall we go a-shearing?”
“Speak a little louder, sir, I am very thick of hearing.”
“Old woman, old woman, shall I kiss you dearly?”
“Thank you, kind sir, I hear you very clearly.”

Handy Pandy

Handy Pandy, Jack-a-dandy,
Loves plum cake and sugar candy.
He bought some at a grocer's shop,
And out he came, hop, hop, hop!

My Kitten

Hey, my kitten, my kitten,
And hey, my kitten, my deary!
Such a sweet pet as this
Was neither far nor neary.

Hot Boiled Beans

Ladies and gentlemen come to supper —
Hot boiled beans and very good butter.

A Walnut

As soft as silk, as white as milk,
As bitter as gall, a strong wall,
And a green coat covers me all.
