Two weeks ago, I gave you 13 of my favorite poems and Fairy Tales and promised Nursery Rhymes the next week. Since I deviated last week, I thought I'd do it this week. So here are
13 of my favorite Mother Goose Nursery Rhymes
To keep it from going too long, I'll only put the first stanza if there are more.DISCLAIMER:
These are some of the ones I learned as I remember them - I'm sure others may have learned them slightly differently.
1. Mary Had A Little Lamb
It's fleece was white as snow
And every where that Mary went
The lamb was sure to go.
2. Little Boy Blue
, come blow your horn
The sheep's in the meadow, the cow's in the corn
Oh, where is the boy who looks after the sheep
He's under the haystack fast asleep.
3. Old Mother Hubbard
went to her cupboard
To get her poor dog a bone
But when she got there
The cupboard was bare
And so the poor dog had none.
4. 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.
5. Sing A Song of Sixpence
A pocketful 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?
6. Jack Sprat
could eat no fat
His wife could eat no lean
And so, between them both, you see
They licked the platter clean.
7. Wee Willie Winkie
runs through the town
Upstairs, downstairs, in his nightgown
Rapping at the window, crying through the lock
"Are the children in their beds? Now it's eight o'clock."
8. Ring Around The Rosies
Pocketful of posies
We all fall down.
9. 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.
10. Georgy Porgy
, pudding and pie
Kissed the girls and made them cry.
When the boys came out the play
Georgy Porgy ran away.
11. 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."
12. There Was A Little Girl
Who had a little curl
Right in the middle of her forehead
When she was good, she was very, very good
And when she was bad, she was horrid.
13. Lucy Locket
lost her pocket
Kitty Fisher found it
There was not a penny in it
But a ribbon 'round it.
