Rub a Dub Dub
Rub a dub dub,
Three men in a tub;
And who do you think they be?
The butcher, the baker,
Turn 'em out, knaves all three!
Three men in a tub,
And how do you think they got there?
They all jumped out of a rotten potato,
'Twas enough to make a man stare.
Some more nursery rhymes to enjoy
Three blind mice
Three blind mice. Three blind mice.
See how they run. See how they run.
They all ran after the farmer's wife
Who cut off their tails with a carving knife.
Did you ever see such a thing in your life
As three blind mice?
