THE man in the moon,
Came down too Boon, And ask'd.his way to Norwich;
He went by the south, And burnt his mouth
"With eating cold pease-porridge.
THERE was an old soldier of
Bister,
"Went walking one day with his
sister;
"When a cow at a poke,
Toss'd her into an oak,
Before the old gentleman miss'd
her.
THERE was an old woman who lived in a shoe,
She had so many children she did'nt know what to do; She gave them some broth without any bread, She whipp'd them all soundly, and sent them to bed.
