Wee Willie Winkie runs through all the town,
Upstairs and downstairs in his night-gown,
Rapping at the window, crying through the lock,
Are the children all in bed? for now it's eight o'clock!
Georgie Porgie, pudding and pie,
Kissed the girls and made them cry;
When the boys came out to play,
Georgie Porgie ran away.

Little Boy Blue,
    Come blow your horn,
The sheep's in the meadow,
    The cow's in the corn.

Where is the boy
    Who looks after the sheep?
He's under a haycock
    Fast asleep.

Will you wake him?
    No, not I,
For if I do,
    He's sure to cry.

    Little Miss Muffet
    Sat on a tuffet,
Eating her curds and whey;
    There came a big spider
    Who sat down beside her,
And frightened Miss Muffet away.

William and Mary,
    George and Anne,
Four such children
    Had never a man:

They put their father
    To flight and shame,
And called their brother
    A shocking bad name.

Pretty little Nancy girl,
She sat upon the green,
Scouring of her candlesticks,
That were not very clean.
Her cupboard, it was musty,
Her table, it was dusty;
And pretty little Nancy girl,
She was not very lusty.
