Round and Round the Garden Like a teddy bear. One step, two step, And tickly under there.

Sing a Song of Sixpence A pocket full of rye, Four and twenty blackbirds baked in a pie. When the pie was opened, The birds began to sing, Wasn’t that a dainty dish to set before the king?

This Little Piggy went to market

He had ten thousand men. He marched them up to the top of the hill and he marched them down again. And when they were up they were up, And when they were down they were down, And when they were only half way up They were neither up nor down.

This little piggy stayed at home, This little piggy had roast beef, And this little piggy had none, And this little piggy went wee, wee, wee all the way home.

Hey Diddle Diddle
