The sweetest notes he always sung,

Which much delighted Mary ;
And near the cage she'd ever sit,

To hear her own canary.

BAA, BAA, BLACK SHEEP.

Baa, baa, black sheep,

Have you any wool ?
Yes, marry, have I,

Three bags full :
One for my master,

One for my dame ;
But none for the little girl

That cries in the lane.

HUMPTY DUMPTY. Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall, Humpty Dumpty had a great fall; All the king's horses and all the king's men Could not set Humpty Dumpty up again.

AT LIV TILLEN FOUNDATION

SIMPLE SIMON.
Simple Simon met a pieman

Going to the fair ;
Says Simple Simon to the pieman,

“Let me taste your ware.” Says the pieman unto Simple Simon,

"Show me first your penny.” Says Simple Simon to the pieman,

“Indeed I have not any." Simple Simon went to look

If plums grew on a thistle ; He pricked his fingers very much,

Which made poor Simon whistle.

TIe went to catch a dicky bird,

And thought he could not fail ; Because he'd got a little salt

To put upon his tail.

He went to shoot a wild duck,

But wild duck flew away. Says Simon, "I can't hit him,

Because he will not stay."
