There Was an Old Woman Who Lived In A Shoe

There was an old woman who lived in a shoe.
She had so many children she didn’t know what to do.
She gave them some broth with plenty of bread,
she kissed them all fondly and sent them to bed.

Fishy, Fishy

Fishy, fishy in the brook.
Daddy caught them on a hook.
Mommy fried them in a pan,
and (child’s name)

  • ate them like a fan (girl child)
