Star light.
Star bright.
First star I see tonight.
I wish I may.
I wish I might
have the wish I wish tonight

If All The World

If all the world were paper,
And all the sea were ink,
If all the trees were bread and cheese,
What should we do for drink?

If all our vessels ran,
If none but had a crack,
If Spanish apes eat all the grapes,
How should we do for sack?
