Two Little Dogs
Two little dogs were basking in the cinders,
Two little cats were playing at the windows,
When two little mice popped out of a hole,
And up to a fine piece of cheese they stole.
The two little dogs cried: "Cheese is nice!"
But the two little cats jumped down in a trice,
And soon cracked the bones of the two little mice.

Old Adam Brown
Old Abram Brown is dead and gone,
You'll never see him more;
He used to wear a long brown coat
That buttoned down before.
