The Piper and His Cow
There was a piper had a cow,
And he had naught to give her;
He pulled out his pipes and played her a tune,
And bade the cow consider.
The cow considered very well,
And gave the piper a penny,
And bade him play the other tune,
"Corn rigs are bonny."
Some more nursery rhymes to enjoy
Young Tommy had a sword of wood.
A wooden sword,
And marched as stiffly as he could,
Just like a board.
With sword in hand, he said he'd stand
If Lions roared.
Just then he saw a little mouse
Peep through a cranny,
And Tom ran sobbing through the house
To find his Granny.
And in her arms, was safe from harms,
And dangers many.
