Mother Goose

Mother Goose

Pat-a-cake, pat-a-cake, baker’s man
Pussy-cat, pussy-cat where have you been?

Rings on her fingers, and bells on her toes
Ring-a-ring of roses, a pocket full of posies

Tom, Tom, the piper’s son
Stole a pig and away he run

Willy boy, Willy boy, where are you?
With the old woman, who lives in a shoe?

Four and twenty black birds baked in a pie
Georgie Porgie made the girls cry

Jack and Jill went up the hill
Humpty Dumpty soon fell ill

Little Bo Peep lost all of her sheep
While Little Boy Blue fell fast asleep

Little Miss Muffet ate curds and whey
And with the spoon the dish ran away

The three little kittens began to cry
And little Jack Horner stuck his thumb in a pie

Bobby Shaftoe’s gone to sea,
He’ll come back and marry me.

Little Tommy Tucker sang for his supper
Polly put the kettle on, Sukey took it off again

Hickety, pickety, my black hen
She lays eggs for gentlemen

Simple Simon met a pieman
Peter, Peter pumpkin eater, had a wife but couldn’t keep her

I met the crooked man who walked a crooked mile
And spent the crooked sixpence against the crooked stile.

Just some  beloved Mother Goose rhymes
The poems that I read in earlier times.

How many do you remember?

What’s your favorite Mother Goose Rhyme?

  1. “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”.
    Though I also liked “Jack be nimble, Jack be quick, Jack jump over the candlestick.”
    I guess I liked the “jumping” nursery rhymes!
