The Nursery Rhymes and Mighty Sparrow’s Dan is the man in the van.

The Nursery Rhymes we learned back in Primary school.

We sat in the classes while the teachers told us:
“Jack sprat could eat no sprat
His wife could eat no lean
And so between them both you see
They licked the platter clean.”

And there was one called Pat-a cake:
“Pat-a-cake, pat-a cake baker’s man
Bake me a cake as fast as you can
Pat it and ***** it, and mark it with B
Put it in the oven for baby and me.

Then told us about Jack Horner:
Little Jack Horner sat in a corner
Eating a Christmas pie
He put in his thumb and pulled out a plum
And said, “What a good boy am I”

And Mary:
“Mary, Many quite contrary
How does your garden grow?
With silver bells, and cockle shells
And pretty maids all in a row.”

They told us about a man who went to St. Ives:
“As I was going to St. Ives
I met a man with seven wives
Each wife had seven sacks
Each sack had seven cats
Each cat had seven kits
Kits, cats, sacks, and wives
How many were there going to St. Ives?”

The one about the little pig made me laugh:
“This little pig went to market
This little pig stayed home
This little pig had roast beef
This little pig had none
This little pig cried wee wee wee
All the way home”

And there was a fella who stole a pig:
“Tom Tom the Piper’s son
Stole a pig and away he ran.”

There was a merry monarch also:
“Old King Cole was a merry old soul
And a merry old soul was he
He called for his pipe
And he called for his bowl
And he called for his fiddlers three.”

And somebody killed a Robin:
“Who killed **** Robin?”
“I’ said the sparrow
“With my bow and arrow
I killed **** Robin”
“Who saw him die?”
“I” said the fly
With my little eye
I saw him die.”

There was a boy who sang for him supper:
“Little Tommy Tucker
Sings for his supper
What shall we give him?
White bread and butter.”

A queen used to bake:
“The Queen of Hearts
She made some tarts
All on a summer day
The knave of Hearts
He stole the tarts
And took them clean away.”

And someone baked blackbirds in a pie:
“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 a king?”

How can a nut tree bear a silver nutmeg?
“I had a little nut tree, nothing will it bear
But a silver nutmeg and a golden pear”

A cat was thrown into a well:
Ding dong, bell
***** in the well
Who put her in?
Little Johnny Green
Who pulled her out?
Big Jack stout.”

And this one had me grinning:
Come let’s to bed
Says Sleepy-head
Tarry a while, says slow:
Put on the pot
Says Greedy-gut
We’ll sup before we go.”

And there were more:
Polly put the kettle on
…………………………
Two black birds sat on a hill
Sitting on a hill
One named Jack
The other names Jill”
………………………….

Fe, Fi, Fo Fum
I smell the blood of an English man
Be he alive or be he dead
I’ll grind his bones to make my bread.
………………………………………..
“Ten little Indians sitting in a line
One went home and there was nine.”
……………………………………………
“The house that Jack built
..That tossed the dog
That killed the cat
That ate the malt
That lay in the house that Jack built.
…………………………………………..
“The farmer in the dell”
………………………………..

Polly, put the kettle on
Polly, put the kettle on
Polly , put the kettle on,
We’ll all have tea
Sukey take it off again
Sukey take it off again
Sukey take it off again
They’ve all gone away.
…………………………………..
Little B-Peep lost his sheep
…………………………………
Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled pepper
…………………………………………….

Lord, who made up those nursery rhymes?
