English Rhymes - Ring-a-ring o' roses, Sing a song of sixpence, Ten little monkeys, There was a little man, Three blind mice, Wee Willie Winkie



Ring-a-ring o' roses

Ring-a-ring o' roses,
A pocket full of posies,
A-tishoo, a-tishoo!
We all fall down.

Alternate version

Ring around the rosie,
A pocket full of posies,
Ashes, ashes!
We all fall down.

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,
They all began to sing.
Now, wasn't that a dainty dish
To set before the King?

The King was in his countinghouse,
Counting out his money;
The Queen was in the parlor
Eating bread and honey.
The maid was in the garden,
Hanging out the clothes.
Along there came a big black bird
And snipped off her nose!

Ten green bottles

Ten green bottles, hanging on the wall,
Ten green bottles, hanging on the wall,
And if one green bottle should accidently fall,
There'll be nine green bottles hanging on the wall.

Ten little monkeys

Ten little monkeys
jumping on the bed
One fell off
And broke his head

Mama called the Doctor
And the Doctor Said
No more monkeys
Jumping on the bed

There was a little man

There was a little man, he had a little gun,
And his bullets were made of lead, lead, lead;
He went to the brook, and shot a little duck,
Right through the middle of the head, head, head.

He carried it home to his old wife Joan,
And bade her a fire for to make, make, make
To roast the little duck he had shot in the brook,
And he'd go fetch her the drake, drake, drake.

Three blind mice

Three blind mice, three blind mice.
See how they run! See how they run!
They all ran after a farmer's wife,
Who cut off their tails with a carving knife.
Did you ever see such a thing in your life,
As three blind mice?

Wee Willie Winkie

Wee Willie Winkie
Runs through the town,
Upstairs and downstairs
In his nightgown.
Rapping at the windows,
Crying through the lock,
"Are the children all in bed?
For it's now eight o'clock".
