Nellie Bligh

Caught a fly

And kept it as a pet

Taking it to school with her

To learn the alphabet


Old King Cole was a merry old soul

His crown was tall and twisty

It had a flashing light on top

For when the nights were misty


Pussy cat,  pussy cat, where have you been ?

Under the waves in a submarine

Pussy cat Pussy cat what did you see ?

A wobbly jellyfish goggling at me


The Queen of Hearts she made some tarts

From spiders dust and soil

And broken bricks

And stones and sticks

And squirts of engine oil


Rain rain go away

You’re shrinking me I fear

Please won’t you stop

Another drop

Will make me disappear


Simple Simon bought a pie

But when he took a bite

A caterpillar wriggled out

To spoil his appetite


Twinkle twinkle little frog

Shivering in your puddle

Hop out of the soggy bog

Come and have a cuddle


Up and down the city road

Round and round the market

Riding on my dinosaur

Wherever I can park it


Vicky sweet

Got both her feet

Stuck inside one shoe

Now she bounces everywhere

Like a kangaroo


Willie Winkie runs through the street

Shoes on his hands gloves on his feet

People are pointing all over town

Wee Willie Winkie’s upside down


X was an eXplorer

He explored the mountain heights

In an orange balaclava

And a pair of purple tights


Yankee Doodle came to town

Did he take the bus

No he put a saddle

On a hippopotamus


Zachary Dapp

Started to flap

Started to flutter and squawk

Climbed on a chair

Jumped in the air

And flew round the room like a hawk
