Early to Bed, Early to Rise

The rooster crows in the morn,
To tell us to rise,
And he that lies late,
Will never be wise,
For early to bed,
And early to rise,
Is the way to be healthy and wealthy and wise.

Mary had a little lamb

Mary had a little lamb,
It´s fleece was white as snow,
And everywhere that Mary went ,
The lamb was sure to go.

Yankee Doodle

Yankee Doodle came to town,
Riding on a pony,
He stuck a feather in his cap,
And called it macaroni.

Here we go round the Mulberry Bush

Here we go round the mulberry bush,
The mulberry bush, the mulberry bush,
Here we go round the mulberry bush,
On a cold and frosty morning.

Songs for Children

Oh where, Oh where Has my little pup gone?

On where, oh where has my little pup gone?
Oh where, Oh where can he be?
With his ears cut short and his tail cut long,
Oh where, oh where is he?

Songs for Children

Hush Little Baby

Hush little baby, don´t say a word,
Mama´s going to buy you a mockingbird,
And if that mockingbird won´t sing,
Mama´s going to buy you a diamond ring.
And if that diamond ring turns brass,
Mama´s going to buy you a looking-glass,
And if that looking glass gets broke,
Mama´s going to buy you a billy goat.

I saw a ship a sailing

I saw a ship a sailing,
A sailing on the sea,
And oh, the ship was loaded,
With pretty things for thee!
There were sweets in the cabin,
And apples in the hold.
The sails were made of silk,
And the masts were made of gold,
The four and twenty sailors,
That stood between the decks,
Were four and twenty white mice,
Gold chain´s around their necks.
The captain was a duck,
With a parcel on his back,
And when the ship began to move,
The captain said “Quack, Quack!”

Three Blind Mice

Three blind mice!
See how they run!
They all ran after the farmer´s wife,
Who cut off their tails with a carving knife,
Did you ever see such a thing in your life?
As three blind mice!

Little Jack Horner

Little Jack Horner,
Sat in the corner,
Eating his Christmas pie,
He put in his thumb,
and pulled out a plum,
And said, “What a good boy am I!”

Wee Willie Winkie

Wee Willie Winkie runs through the town,
Upstairs and downstairs in his nightgown,
Rapping on the window,
Crying through the lock,
“Are the children in their beds,
It´s now eight o´clock?”

Jack Sprat

Jack Sprat could eat no fat,
His wife could eat no lean,
And so between the pair,
They licked the platter clean!

Hickory Dickory Dock

Hickory Dickory Dock,
The mouse ran up the clock,
The clock struck one,
The mouse ran down,
Hickory Dickory Dock
