The South Wind
THE south wind brings wet weather;
The north wind wet and cold together;
The west wind always brings us rain;
The east wind blows it back again.
Some more nursery rhymes to enjoy
The Duke of York
Oh, the grand old Duke of York,
He had ten thousand men;
He marched then up to the top of the hill,
And he marched them down again.
And when they were up, they were up,
And when they were down, they were down,
And when they were only halfway up,
They were neither up nor down.
