Hey diddle diddle, the Cat and the Fiddle,

The Cow jumped over the Moon,

The little Dog laughed to see such sport,

And the Dish ran after the Spoon.

The Little Pig Rock’d The Cradle!

Illustration: Sow With A Saddle.  Mother Goose’s Nursery Rhymes.  McLoughlin Brothers: New York. Ca 1900.

“The Sow With The Saddle.”

The sow came in with the saddle,

The little pig rock’d the cradle,

The dish jump’d up on the table,

To see the pot swallow the ladle.

The spit that stood behind the door

Threw the pudding-stick on the floor.

Odsplut! Said the gridiron,

Can’t you agree?

I’m the constable,

Bring them to me.

Lick The Platter Clean!

Illustration:  Jack Sprat.  Mother Goose’s Nursery Rhymes.  McLoughlin Brothers: New York. Ca 1900.

“Jack Sprat and his Wife.”

 Jack Sprat could eat no fat,

His wife could eat no lean;

And so betwixt them both, you see,

They licked the platter clean.

Pussy & Mice

Some little mice sat in a barn to spin,

Pussy came by, and she popped her head in;

“Shall I come in and cut your threads off?”

“Oh no, kind sir, you will snap our heads off.”

Angry? She Cut Off Their Tails With A Carving Knife!

Illustration: "THREE BLIND MICE."  Mother Goose’s Nursery Rhymes.

“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 ever you hear such a thing in your life

As three blind mice?
