Updated Nursery Rhymes

Her father shot it dead
Now it goes to school with her
Between two hunks of bread

• SIMPLE SIMON met a Pieman going to the fair
Said Simple Simon to the Pieman "What have you got there?"
Said the Pieman unto Simon
"Pies, you idiot!"

• HUMPTY DUMPTY sat on a wall
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall
All the King's horses and all the King's men
Had scrambled eggs on toast for breakfast

Three mice ran up the clock
The clock struck one
And the others got away with minor injuries

• HEY DIDDLE, DIDDLE the cat did a piddle
All over the bedside clock
The little dog laughed to see such fun
And the cat died of electric shock

• THERE WAS AN OLD LADY who lived in a shoe
She had so many children, she qualified for food stamps and welfare.
