If Wishes Were Horses
If wishes were horses
Beggars would ride.
If turnips were watches
I'd wear one by my side.

Little Robin Red breast
Little Robin Red breast sat upon a tree,
Up went pussy cat and down went he;
Down came pussy, and away Robin ran;
Says little Robin Red breast, Catch me if you can.
Little Robin Red breast jumped upon a wall,
Pussy cat jumped after him and almost got a fall;
Little Robin chirped and sang, and what did pussy say?
Pussy cat said, Meeow! and Robin jumped away
