Solomon Grundy,
Born on Monday,
Christened on Tuesday,
Married on Wednesday,
Sick on Thursday,
Worse on Friday,
Died on Saturday,
Buried on Sunday;
And that was the last of
Poor old Solomon Grundy,
Born on Monday,
Christened on Tuesday,
Married on Wednesday,
Sick on Thursday,
Worse on Friday,

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

When the glorious sun is set,
When the grass with dew is wet,
Then you show your little light,
Twinkle, twinkle, all the night.

In the dark-blue sky you keep,
And often through my curtains peep;
For you never shut your eye
Till the sun is in the skv.

When I was a bachelor I lived by myself,

And all the bread and cheese I got, I put upon a

shelf; The rats and the mice did lead me such a life That I went to London to get myself a wife.

The streets were so broad and the lanes were so narrow,

I could not get my wife home without a wheelbarrow;

The wheelbarrow broke, my wife got a fall;

Down tumbled wheelbarrow, little wife, and all.
