London Fisherman

There was a jolly fisherman
And he came down from Billingsgate,
To catch a bloater or a gay mack-er-el;
When he got to pimlioco
The wind began to blowco,
The boat went wibbly-wobbly
And overboard he fell.

The cow jumped over the moon.
The little dog laughed to see such a sport
and the dish ran away with the spoon
