Aeroplane aeroplane,
Up in the sky!

Please take me with you,
Wherever you fly!

Over the clouds,
Oh so high!

Let’s meet the rainbow
In the sky.

Lucy Locket lost her pocket,
Kitty Fisher found it!

Not a penny was there in it,
Only ribbon round it!

Its raining, its pouring,
The old man is snoring!

He went to bed and bumped his head,
And couldn't get up in the morning!

7. Orange is a lemon

Orange is a lemon,
Sold for a penny,
All the school girls are so many.

The grass is green,
And the rose is red.

Remember me
When I am dead, dead, dead.

Yes sir, yes sir, three bags full!

And one for my dame.

And one for the little boy
Who lives down the lane.

10. Jingle bells!

Post posted by VED »

Image

Dashing through the snow
In a one-horse open sleigh.
O'er the fields we go
Laughing all the way.
Bells on bobtails ring
Making spirits bright.
What fun it is to ride and sing
A sleighing song tonight, oh!

Jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way.
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh, hey!
Jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way.
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh!

Here we go 'round the mulberry bush,
The mulberry bush,
The mulberry bush.
Here we go 'round the mulberry bush
On a cold and frosty morning

This is the way we brush our teeth,
Brush our teeth,
Brush our teeth.
This is the way we brush our teeth
On a cold and frosty morning.

Early in the morning,
Down the station,
See the engine drivers,
All in a row.

Driving his engine
Up, up, chuff chuff,

Solomon Grundy,
Born on Monday,

Christened on Tuesday,
Married on Wednesday,

Took ill on Thursday,
Worse on Friday,

Buried on Sunday;

15. Yankee Doodle!

Post posted by VED »

Image


Yankee Doodle went to town
A-riding on a pony
Stuck a feather in his hat
And called it macaroni.

Yankee Doodle, keep it up
Yankee Doodle dandy
Mind the music and the step
And with the girls be handy.

Father and I went down to camp
Along with Captain Gooding
And there we saw the men and boys
As thick as hasty pudding.

Yankee Doodle, keep it up
Yankee Doodle dandy
Mind the music and the step
And with the girls be handy.

There was Captain Washington
Upon a slapping stallion
A-giving orders to his men
I guess there was a million.

Yankee Doodle, keep it up
Yankee Doodle dandy
Mind the music and the step
And with the girls be handy.

Yankee Doodle went to town
A-riding on a pony;
Stuck a feather in his hat
And called it macaroni.

16. Sing a song of six pence!

Post posted by VED »

Image


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;
Now wasn’t that a dainty dish
To set before the King?

The King was in his counting house
Counting out his money;
The Queen was in the parlour
Eating bread and honey.

The maid was in the garden
Hanging out the clothes;
When down came a blackbird
And pecked off her nose.

18. Mary had a little lamb!

Post posted by VED »

Image


Mary had a little lamb,
Little lamb, little lamb;
Mary had a little lamb
Its fleece was white as snow.

Now, everywhere that Mary went,
Mary went, Mary went;
Now everywhere that Mary went,
The lamb was sure to go.

It followed her to school one day,
School one day, school one day;
It followed her to school one day,
Which was against the rule.

It made the children laugh and shout,
Laugh and shout, laugh and shout;
It made the children laugh and shout,
To see a lamb at school.

And so the teacher turned it out,
Turned it out. turned it out;
And so the teacher turned it out,
But still it lingered near.

And waited patiently about,
Patiently about, patiently about;
And waited patiently about,
Till Mary did appear.

“Why does the lamb love Mary so?”
Love Mary so? love Mary so?
“Why does the lamb love Mary so?”
The eager children cry.

“Why, Mary loves the lamb, you know,”
Loves her so, loves her so;
“Why, Mary loves the lamb, you know,”
The teacher did reply.

23. Old King Cole

Post posted by VED »

Image






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.

Every fiddler he had a fiddle,
And a very fine fiddle had he;
Oh, there's none so rare, as can compare
With King Cole and his fiddlers three.

24. Twinkle, twinkle, little star

Post posted by VED »

Image


Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are.
Up above the world so high,
Like a diamond in the sky.

Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are!

When the blazing sun is gone,
When he nothing shines upon,
Then you show your little light,
Twinkle, twinkle, all the night.

Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are!

Then the traveller in the dark
Thanks you for your tiny spark;
He wouldn’t see which way to go,
If you did not twinkle so.

Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are!

A tisket, a tasket
A green and yellow basket,

And on the way, l dropped it.

My green and yellow basket.
Someone must have picked it up
And put it in their pocket.

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?

To fetch a pail of water.

And broke his crown
And Jill came tumbling after.
