SIMPLE SIMON" met a pieman
Going to the fair: Says Simple Simon to the pieman, " Let me taste your ware."
Says the pieman to Simple Simon, " Show me first your penny."
Says Simple Simon to the pieman, "Indeed I have not any."
Simple Simon went a fishing For to catch a whale;
All the water he had got "Was in his mother's pail.
Simple Simon went to look If plums grew on a thistle;
He prick'd his fingers very much, Which made poor Simon whistle.
SHOE the colt, shoe the colt,
Shoe the grey mare; If the colt won't be shod, Let him go bare.
(
SING, sing, what shall I sing ? Puss has stolen the pudding-string ! Do, do, what shall I do ? Puss has bit it quite in two!
