Finger and Toe Nails

Cut them on Monday, you cut them for health;
Cut them on Tuesday, you cut them for wealth;
Cut them on Wednesday, you cut them for news;
Cut them on Thursday, a new pair of shoes;
Cut them on Friday, you cut them for sorrow;
Cut them on Saturday, see your true-love tomorrow;
Cut them on Sunday, you cut them for evil,
For all the next week you'll be ruled by the devil.
I see the moon,
And the moon sees me;
God bless the moon,
And God bless me.

Hey diddle, diddle,
The cat made a piddle,
The cow made a poo on the floor;
The little dog laughed
To see such sport,
And the dish ran away with the spoon.
Or if
you don't
want to
clean up
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.

Pat-a-cake, pat-a-cake, baker's man,
Bake me a cake as fast as you can;
Pat it and prick it, and mark it with a T,
Put it in the oven for Tommy and me.

Bow-wow, says the dog,
Mew, mew, says the cat,
Grunt, grunt, goes the hog,
And squeak goes the rat.
Tu-whu, says the owl,
Caw, caw, says the crow,
Quack, quack, says the duck,

And what cuckoos say you know.

Higglety, pigglety, pop!
The dog has eaten the mop;
    The pig's in a hurry,
    The cat's in a flurry,
Higglety, pigglety, pop!
Hickory, dickory, dock,
The mouse ran up the clock.
    The clock struck one,
    The mouse ran down.
Hickory, dickory, dock.

Hoddley, poddley, puddle and fogs,
Cats are to marry the poodle dogs;
Cats in blue jackets and dogs in red hats,
What will become of the mice and the rats?
Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall;
    All the King's horses
    And all the King's men
Couldn't put Humpty together again.

Jack be nimble,
    Jack be quick,
Jack jump over
    The candlestick.
    Three men in a tub,
And how do you think they got there?
    The butcher, the baker,
    The candlestick-maker,
They all jumped out of a rotten potato,
'Twas enough to make a man stare.

Little fishes in a brook,
Father caught them on a hook,
Mother fried them in a pan,
Johnnie eats them like a man.
