There was an Old Person of Mold by Edward Lear

There was an Old Person of Mold,
Who shrank from sensations of cold;
So he purchased some muffs,
Some furs and some fluffs,
And wrapped himself from the cold.

There was an Old Man of the Dee by Edward Lear

There was an Old Man of the Dee,
Who was sadly annoyed by a flea;
When he said, 'I will scratch it,'
They gave him a hatchet,
Which grieved that Old Man of the Dee.

There was an Old Man of Thermopyle by Edward Lear

There was an old man of Thermopylæ,
Who never did anything properly;
But they said, 'If you choose, To boil eggs in your shoes,
You shall never remain in Thermopylæ.'

Tae an American Tourist by Stuart McLean

O, ye came across frae Texas,
Tae the land where yer faither wis born,
O, there wis an awfy lot tae see,
And ye only had one morn’.

At 6 o’clock ye did Edinbro,
Saw the castle from afar,
By 7 o’clock ye wis at Lock Ness,
Tae catch Nessie in a jar.

From eight till nine ye did Bern Nevis,
Though ye didnae climb sae high,
And twenty minutes later ye were,
Whizzin’ all around Sky.

Quickly you passed through Dondee,
Pearth, Hawich and Arderseer,
Which left ye just ten minutes,
Tae buy yer souvenir.

O, haste ye back tae Bonnie Scotland,
Please come back again,
O, haste ye back tae Bonnie Scotland,
And haste ye away again.

Stuart McLean (From No' Rabbie Burns)

There was an Young Lady of Ryde by Edward Lear

There was a Young Lady of Ryde,
Whose shoe-strings were seldom untied.
She purchased some clogs,
And some small spotted dogs,
And frequently walked about Ryde.
