Wash the dishes,
Wipe the dishes,
Ring the bell for tea.
Three good wishes,
Three good kisses,
I will give to thee.
Some more nursery rhymes to enjoy
A cat came fiddling out of a barn
A cat came fiddling out of a barn,
With a pair of bagpipes under her arm.
She could sing nothing but "fiddle dee dee",
The mouse has married the bumblebee.
Pipe, cat, dance, mouse,
We'll have a wedding at our good house.
