A Tisket A Tasket
A green and yellow basket.
I wrote a letter to my love,
But on the way I dropped it.
I dropped it, I dropped it,
And, on the way I dropped it.
A little boy picked it up,
And put it in his pocket.
Some more nursery rhymes to enjoy
Pussy Cat Mole
Pussy-cat mole jumped over a coal,
And in her best petticoat burnt a great hole.
Poor pussy's weeping she'll have no more milk
Until her best petticoat's mended with silk.
