Army And Navy
These doggies three, as you can see,
Are members of the Queen's Armee;
"Of all the lives," said they, "to lead,
A soldier's life's the best indeed!"
They stood at 'tention, stiff as starch,
Till Corporal Pincher cried, "Quick march!"
They drilled so well , they were all three,
A credit to the Queen's Armee!
They had for friends, as you can see,
Three sailors in the Queen's Navee.
"We sail," said they, "the ocean blue,
And we can dance a hornpipe too!"
With soldiers bold and sailors true,
I feel the country's safe, don't you?
No danger now need be expected
Because we are so well protected.

Little Boy Blue
come blow your horn.
The sheep's in the meadow.
The cow's in the corn.
Where is the boy who looks after the sheep?
He's under the haystack fast asleep
