Itsy bitsy spider by Anonymous

Itsy bitsy spider
Climbed up the waterspout;
Down came the rain
And washed the spider out;
Out came the sun
And dried up all the rain;
And the itsy bitsy spider
Climbed up the spout again.

How doth the little crocodile by Lewis Carroll

How doth the little crocodile
Improve his shining tail,
And pour the waters of the Nile
On every golden scale!

How cheerfully he seems to grin
How neatly spreads his claws,
And welcomes little fishes in,
With gently smiling jaws!

There was an Young Lady whose chin by Edward Lear

There was a Young Lady whose chin,
Resembled the point of a pin;
So she had it made sharp,
And purchased a harp,
And played several tunes with her chin.

Wee Joukydaidles by J Smith

Wee Joukydaidles,
Toddlin' out an' in :
Oh but she's a cuttie,
Makin' a sair din !
Aye sae fou' o' mischief,
An' minds na what I say :
My verra heart gangs loup, loup,
Fifty times a-day !

Wee Joukydaidles -
Where's the stumpie noo ?
She's peepin' thro' the cruivie,
An' lauchin' to the soo !
Noo she sees my angry e'e,
An' aff she's like a hare !
Lassie, when I get ye,
I'll scud ye till I'm sair !

Wee Joukydaidles -
Noo she's breakin' dishes -
Noo she's soakit i' the burn,
Catchin' little fishes -
Noo she's i' the barn-yard,
Playin' wi' the fouls ;
Feedin' them wi' butter-bakes,
Snaps, an' sugar-bools.

Wee Joukydaidles -
Oh, my heart it's broke !
She's torn my braw new wincey
To mak' a dolly's frock -
There's the goblet owre the fire !
The jaud ! she weel may rin !
No a tattie ready yet,
An' faither comin' in !

Wee Joukydaidles -
Where's the smoukie noo !
She's hidin' i' the coal-hole
Cryin' 'Keekyboo !' -
Noo she's at the fireside,
Pu'in' pussy's tail -
Noo she's at the broun bowl,
Suppin' a' the kail !

Wee Joukydaidles -
Paidlin' i' the shower -
There she's at the windy !
Haud her, or she's owre !
Noo she's slippit frae my sicht :
Where's the wean at last ?
In the byre amang the kye,
Sleepin', soun' an' fast.

There was a crooked man, and he went a crooked mile by Author Unknown

There was a crooked man, and he went a crooked mile
He found a crooked sixpence against a crooked stile
He bought a crooked cat, which caught a crooked mouse
And they all lived together in a little crooked house.
