AS I went through the garden gap,
Who should I meet but Dick Red-cap!
A stick in his hand, a stone in his throat,
If you'll tell me' this riddle, ; I'll give you a groat.
AS I was going to St. Ives,
I met a man with seven wives; Every wife had seven sacks, Every sack had seven cats, . Every cat had seven kits: Kits, cats, sacks and wives, How many were there going to St. Ives ?
AS round as an apple, as deep as a cup,
And all the king's horses can't pull it up.
