The Real Mother Goose

A, B, C, and D
About the bush, Willie
A carrion crow sat on an oak
A diller, a dollar, a ten o'clock scholar!
A duck and a drake
A farmer went trotting upon his gray mare
A hill full, a hole full
A little boy went into a barn
A little cock-sparrow sat on a green tree
A little old man of Derby
A man went a-hunting at Reigate
A riddle, a riddle, as I suppose
A robin and a robin's son
Around the green gravel the grass grows green
As I walked by myself
As I was going along, along
As I was going to Derby all on a market-day
As I was going to St. Ives
As I was going to sell my eggs
As I was going up Pippen Hill
As I went through the garden gap
As I went to Bonner
As little Jenny Wren
As round as an apple, as deep as a cup
As soft as silk, as white as milk
As the days grow longer
As Tommy Snooks and Bessy Brooks
A sunshiny shower
A swarm of bees in May
At the siege of Belleisle
Away, birds, away!

Baa, baa, black sheep
Barber, barber, shave a pig
Bat, bat
Bell horses, bell horses, what time of day?
Bessy Bell and Mary Gray
"Billy, Billy, come and play"
Birds of a feather flock together
Black within and red without
Bobby Shaftoe's gone to sea
Burnie bee, burnie bee
Buttons, a farthing a pair!
Bye, baby bunting

Christmas comes but once a year
Christmas is coming, the geese are getting fat
Clap, clap handies
"Cock, cock, cock, cock"
Cocks crow in the morn
Cold and raw the north wind doth blow
Come when you're called
Cross patch, draw the latch
Cry, baby, cry
Curly-locks, Curly-locks, wilt thou be mine?
Cushy cow, bonny, let down thy milk

Daffy-down-dilly has come to town
Dame Trot and her cat
Dance little Baby, dance up high!
Dance, Thumbkin, dance
Dance to your daddie
Dear, dear! what can the matter be?
Dickory, dickory, dare
Diddle diddle dumpling, my son John
Ding, dong, bell
Doctor Foster went to Glo'ster
Donkey, donkey, old and gray
Doodle doodle doo

Elizabeth, Elspeth, Betsy, and Bess
Every lady in this land

Flour of England, fruit of Spain
For every evil under the sun
For want of a nail, the shoe was lost .
Four and Twenty tailors
Friday night's dream, on Saturday told

Georgy Porgy, pudding and pie
Girls and boys, come out to play
Goosey, goosey, gander
Great A, little a
Great A, little a
Handy Pandy, Jack-a-dandy
Hark, hark! the dogs do bark!
Hector Protector was dressed all in green
Here am I, little jumping Joan
Here goes my lord
Here sits the Lord Mayor
Here's Sulky Sue
Here we go round the mulberry bush
Hey, diddle, diddle!
Hey diddle dinkety poppety pet
Hey, my kitten, my kitten
Hick-a-more, Hack-a-more
Hickery, dickery, 6 and 7
Hickety, pickety, my black hen
Hickory, dickory, dock!
High diddle doubt, my candle's out
Higher than a house, higher than a tree
Hot-cross Buns!
How many days has my baby to play?
How many miles is it to Babylon?
Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall
Hush-a-bye, baby
Hush-a-bye, baby, lie still with thy daddy
Hush-a-bye, baby, on the tree top!
Hush, baby, my dolly, I pray you don't cry

"I am a gold lock"
I do not like thee, Doctor Fell
If all the seas were one sea
If all the world were apple pie
If I'd as much money as I could spend
If I'd as much money as I could tell
If wishes were horses, beggars would ride
If you are to be a gentleman
If you sneeze on Monday, you sneeze for danger
I had a little boy
I had a little hen, the prettiest ever seen
I had a little hobby-horse
I had a little husband no bigger than my thumb
I had a little moppet
I had a little pony
I had two pigeons bright and gay
I have seen you, little mouse
I like little Pussy
I'll tell you a story
I love sixpence, a jolly, jolly sixpence
In a cottage in Fife
Intery, mintery, cutery corn
I saw a ship a-sailing
Is John Smith within?
I went to the wood and got it
"I went up one pair of stairs"
I won't be my father's Jack

Jack and Jill went up the hill
Jack be nimble, Jack be quick
Jack Sprat
"Jacky, come and give me thy fiddle"
Jerry Hall, he was so small
Johnny shall have a new bonnet

Ladies and gentlemen come to supper
Ladybird, ladybird, fly away home!
Leg over leg
"Lend me thy mare to ride a mile"
Little Betty Blue
Little Bobby Snooks was fond of his books
Little Bo-Peep has lost her sheep
Little Boy Blue, come, blow your horn!
"Little girl, little girl, where have you been?"
Little Jack Horner
Little Jack Jelf
Little Jack Jingle
Little Jenny Wren fell sick
Little King Boggen, he built a fine hall
"Little maid, Pretty maid, whither goest thou?".
Little Miss Muffet
Little Nanny Etticoat
Little Polly Flinders
Little Robin Redbreast sat upon a tree.
Little Tommy Tittlemouse
Little Tom Tucker
Lives in winter
London Bridge is broken down
Long legs, crooked thighs
Lucy Locket lost her pocket

March winds and April showers
Margaret wrote a letter
Mary had a pretty bird
Mary, Mary, quite contrary
Master I have, and I am his man
Mister East gave a feast
Molly, my sister and I fell out
Monday's child is fair of face
Multiplication is vexation
My little old man and I fell out
My maid Mary she minds the dairy

Nancy Dawson was so fine
Needles and pins, needles and pins

Oh, dear, what can the matter be?
Oh, my pretty cock, oh, my handsome cock
Old Grimes is dead, that good old man
Old King Cole
Old Mother Goose, when
Old Mother Hubbard
Old Mother Twitchett had but one eye
"Old woman, old woman, shall we go a-shearing?
Once I saw a little bird
One, he loves; two, he loves
One misty moisty morning
One, two, buckle my shoe
One, two, three, four, five
1, 2, 3, 4, 5!
On Saturday night
Over the water
Over the water, and over the sea

Pat-a-cake, Pat-a-cake
Pease porridge hot
Peter, Peter, pumpkin-eater
Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers
Piping hot, smoking hot
Polly, put the kettle on
Poor old Robinson Crusoe!
Pretty John Watts
Pussy-cat ate the dumplings, the dumplings
Pussy-cat Mew jumped over a coal
"Pussy-cat, Pussy-cat"
Pussy-cat sits by the fire

Rain, rain, go away
Rain, rain, go to Spain
Read my riddle, I pray .
Ride a cock-horse to Banbury Cross
Ride away, ride away
Ring a ring a' roses
"Robert Barnes, my fellow fine"
Robin and Richard were two pretty men
Robin Hood, Robin Hood
Rock-a-bye, baby, thy cradle is green

Saw ye aught of my love a-coming from the market?
See a pin and pick it up
See-saw, Margery Dow
See, see! What shall I see?
Shoe the colt
Simple Simon met a pieman
Sing a song of sixpence
Sing, sing, what shall I sing?
Sleep, baby, sleep
Solomon Grundy
Swan, swan, over the sea

Taffy was a Welshman, Taffy was a thief
The cock's on the housetop blowing his horn
The dove says coo, coo, what shall I do?
The fair maid who, the first of May
The girl in the lane, that couldn't speak plain
The greedy man is he who sits
The hart he loves the high wood
The King of France went up the hill
The little robin grieves
The Lion and the Unicorn were fighting for the crown
The Man in the Moon came tumbling down
The Man in the Moon looked out of the moon
The man in the wilderness
The north wind doth blow
The Queen of Hearts
There came an old woman from France
There dwelt an old woman at Exeter
There's a neat little clock
There was a Crooked man, and he went a crooked mile
There was a fat man of Bombay
There was a little boy and a little girl
There was a little girl who had a little curl
There was a little man
There was a little man, and he had a little gun
There was a little woman, as I've been told
There was a man and he had naught
There was a man in our town
There was an old man
There was an old man of Tobago
There was an old woman
There was an old woman, and what do you think?
There was an old woman, as I've heard tell
There was an old woman had three sons
There was an old woman in Surrey
There was an old woman of Gloucester
There was an old woman of Harrow
There was an old woman of Leeds
There was an old woman sat spinning
There was an old woman tossed in a basket
There was an old woman who lived in a shoe
There was a piper had a cow
There were once two cats of Kilkenny
There were two birds sat on a stone
The two gray kits
Thirty days hath September
Thirty while horses upon a red hill
This is the house that Jack built
This way the ladies ride
This little pig went to market
Three blind mice! See how they run!
Three children sliding on the ice
Three straws on a staff
Three wise men of Gotham
"To bed! To bed"
To make your candles last for aye
To market, to market, to buy a fat Pig
Tommy's tears and Mary's fears
Tom, Tom, the piper's son
Trip upon trenchers
'Twas once upon a time, when Jenny Wren was young
Tweedle-dum and Tweedle-dee
Twelve pairs hanging high

Up at Piccadilly, oh!

Wee Willie Winkie runs through the town
What are little boys made of, made of?
"What is the news of the day"
What is the rhyme for porringer?
When I was a bachelor
When I was a little girl, about seven years old
When little Fred went to bed
"Where are you going, my pretty maid?"
"Whistle, daughter, whistle"
Who killed Cock Robin?
"Willy boy, Willy boy, where are you going?"
Willy, Willy Wilkin

Young Roger came tapping at Dolly's window
"You owe me five shillings"
You shall have an apple
