1. Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star

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

2. Three Blind Mice

Three blind mice
Three blind mice
See how they run
See how they run.
They all ran after the farmer’s wife
Who cut off their tails with a carving knife.
Did you ever see such a sight in your life
As three blind mice.

3. Hickory Dickory Dock

Hickory dickory dock
The mouse ran up the clock
The clock struck one
The mouse ran down
Hickory, Dickory, Dock!

Baa, baa, black sheep, Have you any wool?
Yes sir, yes sir; Three bags full:
One for the master, and one for the dame,
And one for the little boy who lives down the lane.

5. 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,
Couldn’t put Humpty together again.

6. Row, Row, Row Your Boat

Row row row your boat
Gently down the stream.
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily,
Life is but a dream.

8. Mary Had A Little Lamb

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

And ev’ry where that Mary went,
Mary went, Mary went.
Evrywhere 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 play,
Laugh and play, laugh and play.
It made the children laugh and play,
To see a lamb at school.

So the teacher turned him out,
turned him out, turned him out.
So the teacher turned him out,
And sent him straight away.

9. Itsy Bitsy Spider

The itsy bitsy spider
Climbed up the water spout.
Down came the rain
And washed the spider out.
Out came the sun
And dried up all the rain,
So the itsy-bitsy spider
Climbed up the spout again!
