T ITTLE Eobin Red-breast sat upon a tree, Up went Pussy-cat, and down went he; Down came Pussy-cat, and away Eobin ran; Says little Eobin Eed-breast, "Catch me if you can."
Little Eobin Eed-breast jumped upon a spade, Pussy-cat jumped after him, and made him afraid; Little Eobin chirp'd and sung, and what did Pussy say ? Pussy-cat said "Mew, mew, mew," and Eobin flew away.
LITTLE Anne Etticoat, In a white petticoat, And a red nose; The longer she stands, The shorter she grows.
[A Candle.']
LITTLE Tee Wee, He went to sea, In an open boat; And while afloat The little boat bended, And my story's ended.
LITTLE Mary Ester, Sat upon a tester,
Eating of curds and whey ■;
There came a large spider, And sat down beside her,
And frighten'd poor Mary away.
