GAY go up and gay go down,

To ring the bells of London town.

Halfpence and farthings,

Say the bells of St. Martin's.

Oranges and lemons,

Say the bells of St. Clement's.

Pancakes and fritters,

Say the bells of St. Peter's.

Kettles and pans,

Say the bells of St. Ann's.

You owe me ten shillings,

Say the bells of St. Helen's.

When will you pay me


Say the bells of Old Bailey.

When I grow rich,

Say the bells of Shoreditch.

Pray when will that be?
Say the bells of Stepney.

I am sure I don't know,
Says the great bell of Bow.

and at last the pie was, by final consent, divided among the whole party.

FROG he would a wooing go,

Whether his mother would let him or no.

So off he march'd with his nice new hat,

And on the way he met with a rat.

When they came to the door of the mouse's hall, They gave a loud knock, and they gave a loud call.

Pray, Mrs. Mouse, are you within?

Oh, yes, Mr. Rat, I'm learning to spin.

Pray, Mrs. Mouse, will you give us some beer?
For froggy and I are fond of good cheer.

But as they were all a merry-making,
The cat and her kittens came tumbling in.

The cat she seized the rat by the crown;

The kittens they pull'd the little mouse down.

This put poor frog in a terrible fright;

So he took up his hat, and he wish'd them good-night.

As froggy was crossing him over a brook,
A lily-white duck came and gobbled him up.

So there was an end of one, two, and three,
The rat, the mouse, and the little frogg-ee!


JACK SPRAT could eat no fat,

His wife could eat no lean;

And so betwixt them both

They lick'd the platter clean.
