Wee Willie Winkie – Take Two

Wee Willie Winkie
Runs through the town,
Upstairs and downstairs in his night gown,
Rapping at the windows,
Crying through the locks,
I’ve lost my keys, my feet are cold,
THERE ARE HOLES IN MY SOCKS!

Lavender Blue, Dilly, Dilly

Lavender Blue, Dilly, Dilly

Lavender’s blue, dilly, dilly,
Lavender’s green,
When I am rich, dilly, dilly,
You’ll eat ice-cream.
*
Roses are red, dilly, dilly,
Violets are blue,
Because you love garlic, dilly, dilly,
I’ll eat some too.
*
Let the birds sing, dilly, dilly,
And the lambs frolic,
We’ll be happy, dilly, dilly,
Eating ice-cream garlic.

Humpty Dumpty

stories for children

Humpty Dumpty

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
All the king’s horses and all the king’s men,
Laughed at old Humpty, broken, in pain.

Oh will you please save me? Humpty asked in his pain?
My shell it is cracked and so is my brain.
If nothing is done by horse or by man.
My time will be gone from nursery rhyme land.

The king’s horses and also his men,
Felt sorry for laughing at the egg in his pain.
So fetching some glue – and super at that,
They stuck him together, though ever so cracked.

He had Ten Thousand Men (a new take on an old nursery rhyme)

He had Ten Thousand Men…

 1

The grand old duke of York
He had ten thousand men
He marched them up to the top of the hill
And he marched them down again

 2

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

3

The grand old duke of York
He had ten thousand cats
They scratched their way to the top of the hill
And scratched back down – it’s a fact!

4

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

5

The grand old duke of York
He had ten thousand snails
They slithered they way to the top of the hill
And slid back on slimy trails

6

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

 7

The grand old duke of York
He had ten thousand mice
They scurried right up to the top of the hill
Not once, not twice, but THRICE!

8

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

9

The grand old duke of York
He had ten thousand ants
They marched their way to the top of the hill
And marched back down, so grand

 10

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

11

The grand old duke of York
He had ten thousand skunks
They smelt their way to the top of the hill
And came back down like monks?

 12

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

 13

The grand old duke of York
He had ten thousand fish
They swam their way to the top of the hill
And swam back down with chips

14

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

 15

The grand old duke of York
He had ten thousand birds
They flew right over the top of the hill
Far away, but, hey, that’s birds!

 16

And when they were up they were up
And when they were down they were down
But when they were gone, so truly gone
They were surely not up or down

There once was a boy named Dan

Stories for children

There once was a boy named Dan,

Who wanted to fry in a pan.

He tried and he tried until he eventually died,

What a weird little boy was Dan.

That’s Joe

Slug

That’s Joe

There once was a slug called Joe

Who wished he were fast, not slow

Until one day, while alone

He saw a snail struggling, carrying its home

Now he slimes about happy: That’s Joe

‘Oh, those naughty, naughty children!’

 

Mary had a ‘Little’ Lamb

Mary had a ‘little’ lamb so round, so fat and plump,

It tried to follow her everywhere but it couldn’t even jump.

*

One day when Mary was not at home it set off in a trot,

Searching all about the place to see just where she’d got.

*

Despite it searching everywhere the poor lamb could not see,

That Mary had eloped and gone with Jill’s young Jack, hee, hee.
