A Jumper Of Ditches
A jumper of ditches,
A leaper of thorns,
A little grey man with
Two leather horns
Some more nursery rhymes to enjoy
The Modern Milkman
"Pussy Cat! Pussy Cat! Where have you been?"
"Selling milk To the King and the Queen!"
"Pussy Cat! Pussy Cat! What did they do?"
"They laughed Till they cracked their sides in two!"
"Pussy Cat! Pussy Cat! What did they say?"
"Cats never sell milk Down Windsor way!"
"Pussy Cat! Pussy Cat! What did you do?"
"I put up my cans on the larder shelf,
And as for the milk I drank it my self!"
"Pussy Cat! Pussy Cat! What did you then?"
"I went to my Club As the clock struck Ten;
And there we sat chatting behind the bar,
Dandy and I and a big cigar!"
The times have altered, truly ‘tis no joke
When Cats sell milk, and Puppies try to smoke.
