Horsey horsey don't you stop
Just let your feet go clippetty clop
The tail goes swish and the wheels go round
Giddy up, we're homeward bound
Some more nursery rhymes to enjoy

Mrs red Fox went to bed
with a turban on her head.
Mrs white Cat had a fright
in the middle of the night;
Saw a ghost eating toast
half way up a lamp post.
Mrs brown Bear went to town
with her knickers hanging down.
Mrs green Lizard saw the scene
and put it in a magazine.
