Four corners round about.

Would make a baby cry and laugh.

A hundred eyes and never a nose!

In a yellow petticoat and a green gown.

When a man marries his trouble begins.

Cry, baby, cry,
Put your finger in your eye,
And tell your mother it wasn't I.

Ring a ring o' roses,
A pocketful of posies.
Tisha! Tisha!
We all fall down.

As round as an apple, as deep as a cup,
And all the king's horses can't fill it up.

Bell horses, bell horses, what time of day?
One o'clock, two o'clock, three and away.

6, 7, 8, 9, 10!
I let her go again.

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

Leg over leg,
As the dog went to Dover;
When he came to a stile,
Jump, he went over.

Thirty white horses upon a red hill,
Now they tramp, now they champ, now they stand still.

What shall we do?
Turn her face to the wall
Till she comes to.

You shall have an apple,
YOU shall have a plum,
You shall have a rattle,
When papa comes home.
