Yes sir, yes sir, three bags full.

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 away with the spoon.

I'm a little teapot, short and stout.

Here is my handle, here is my spout.

Oh, where, oh, where can he be?

With his tail cut short and his ears cut long,

Oh, where, oh, where can he be?

Pop! Goes the Weasel

All around the cobbler's bench the monkey chased the weasel.

The monkey thought t'was all in fun- Pop! Goes the weasel.

A penny for a spool of thread, a penny for a needle,

That's the way the money goes- Pop! Goes the weasel!

Row, row, row your boat gently down the stream.

Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily, life is but a dream.

He shall have but a penny a day

Because he can't work any faster.

Shoo fly, don't bother me. Shoo fly, don't bother me.

Shoo fly, don't bother me. For I belong to somebody.

Sing a Song of Sixpence

Sing a song of sixpence a pocket full of rye,

Four-and-twenty blackbirds baked in a pie.

When the pie was opened the birds began to sing.

Wasn't that a dainty dish to set before the king?

The Ants Go Marching

The ants go marching one by one, hurrah, hurrah.

The ants go marching one by one, hurrah, hurrah.

The little one stops to suck his thumb.

And they all go marching down,

To the ground, to get out, of the rain.

Boom! Boom! Boom! Boom!

Down came the rain and washed the spider out.

Out came the sun and dried up all the rain.

And the itsy bitsy spider climbed up the spout again.

With a knick-knack paddy whack give the dog a bone.

This old man came rolling home.

As three blind mice? Three blind mice!
