Why Put A Calf On The Wall?

Illustration:  Calf On The Wall.  Mother Goose - Volland Popular Edition.  Edited by Eulalie Osgood Grover.  Illustrated by Frederick Richardson.  Published by P. F. Volland Company: New York, Chicago & Toronto. 1921.

There was an old man,

And he had a calf,

And that’s half;

He took him out of the stall,

And put him on the wall,

And that’s all.

Baby Bunting

Bye, Baby bunting,

Father’s gone a-hunting,

Mother’s gone a-milking,

Sister’s gone a-silking,

And Brother’s gone to buy a skin

To wrap the Baby bunting in.

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.

Pat-a-cake, pat-a-cake, baker’s man!

So I do, master, as fast as I can:

Pat it, and prick it, and mark it with T

Put it in the oven for Tommy and 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.
