Wee Willie Winkie

Wee Willie Winkie
Runs through the town
Upstairs and downstairs
In his nightgown.
Rapping at the window
Crying through the lock
Are the children all in bed?
For now it’s eight o’clock!

Jack and Jill
Jack and Jill went up the hill.
To fetch a pail of water.
Jack fell down, and broke his crown,
And Jill came tumbling after.

Jack Be Nimble

Jack be nimble,
Jack be quick,
Jack jump over
The candlestick.
