The Spider 02:46
Incy Wincy spider climbed up the water spout Down came the rain and it washed the spider out Out came the sun and it dried up all the rain And Incy Wincy spider climbed up the spout again

Miss Molly 02:08
Miss Molly had a dolly who was sick, sick, sick So she called for the doctor to come quick, quick, quick The doctor came with his bag and his hat And he knocked on the door with a rat-a-tat-tat He looked at the dolly and he shook his head And he said "Miss Molly put her straight to bed" He wrote on some paper for a pill, pill, pill "I'll be back in the morning with my bill, bill, bill."

Blind Mice 02:10
One blind mouse one blind mouse See how he runs see how he runs He scurried after the farmer’s wife She cut off his tail with a carving knife She never saw such a thing in her house as one blind mouse Two blind mice two blind mice See how they run see how they run They both ran after the farmer’s wife She cut off their tails with a carving knife Did you ever see such a thing in your life as two blind mice? Three blind mice three blind mice See how they run see how they run They all ran after the farmer's wife She cut off their tails with a carving knife Did you ever see such a thing in your life as three blind mice?

Lyrics: It’s raining it’s pouring The old man is snoring He went to bed and bumped his head And couldn’t get up in the morning

Baby's Dish 03:21
Dance to your daddy My little laddie/lassie Dance to your daddy My little lamb You shall have a fishy On a little dishy You shall have a fishy When the boat comes in Fishy fishy in a brook Daddy caught him on a hook Mammy cooked the little fish And served it up in Baby’s dish

Sing a song of sixpence a pocket full of rye Four and twenty blackbirds baked in a pie When the pie was opened the birds began to sing Wasn't that a dainty dish to set before the king The king was in his counting house counting out his money The queen was in the parlour eating bread and honey The maid was in the garden hanging out the clothes When down came a blackbird and pecked off her nose

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall Humpty Dumpty had a great fall All the king's horses and all the king's men Couldn't put Humpty together again

Row, row, row your boat Gently down the stream Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily Life is but a dream Row, row, row your boat Gently down the stream If you see a crocodile Don’t forget to scream!

There was an old man named Michael Finnegan He had whiskers on his chinnegan The wind came along and blew them in again Poor old Michael Finnegan There was an old man named Michael Finnegan He went fishing with a pin again Caught a fish but it flopped back in again Poor old Michael Finnegan There was an old man named Michael Finnegan He ran a race and tried to win again He fell down and bumped his shin again Poor old Michael Finnegan

An Old Story 01:22
Johnny sat down and he told an old story He told it and told it and told it again: "Hey diddle diddle The cat and the fiddle The cow jumped over the moon The little dog laughed to see such fun And the dish ran away with the spoon" “Be Gob”, said old Biddy, “You tell it so well Why don’t you sit down and tell it again?” So...Johnny sat down and he told an old story He told it and told it and told it again...

Old King Cole was a merry old soul and a merry old soul was he He called for his pipe and he called for his bowl And he called for his fiddlers three Now every fiddler had a fine fiddle and a very fine fiddle had he Fiddle fiddle dee fiddle dee went the fiddlers “Very fine men are we!” There’s none so rare as can compare to the King’s fine fiddlers three Fiddle fiddle dee fiddle dee went the fiddlers “Very fine men are we!” There’s none so rare as can compare to the King’s fine fiddlers three

Jack and Jill went up the hill To fetch a pail of water Jack fell down and broke his crown And Jill came tumbling after Up Jack got and home did trot As fast as he could caper He went to bed and covered his head In vinegar and brown paper

Dilín 02:06
Dilín ó deamhas ó deamhas Dilín ó deamhas ó dí Dilín ó deamhas ó deamhas ó deamhas ó Dilín ó deamhas ó dí She didn’t dance at all She didn’t dance today She didn’t dance at all at all no She didn’t dance today Caithfimid suas is suas Caithfimid suas an páiste Caithfimid suas í suas is suas í 'S tiocfaidh sí 'nuas amárach Throw her uppity up Throw her up so high Throw her uppity up up up And she will come down nearby

When all the cows were sleeping And the sun had gone to bed Up jumped the scarecrow And this is what he said Chorus: I'm a dingle, dangle scarecrow With a great big floppy hat I can shake my hands like this And I can shake my feet like that When all the hens were roosting And the moon behind a cloud Up jumped the scarecrow And shouted very loud Loud Chorus When dogs were in the kennels And doves were in the loft Up jumped the scarecrow And whispered very soft Soft Chorus Loud Chorus
16.
Horsey, Horsey don’t you stop Just let your hooves go clippity clop Let your tail go swish and the wheels go round Giddy up! We’re homeward bound

The Star 04:44
Twinkle, twinkle little star How I wonder what you are Up above the world so high Like a diamond in the sky Twinkle, twinkle little star How I wonder what you are When the blazing sun is gone When he nothing shines upon Then you show your little light Twinkle, twinkle all the night Twinkle, twinkle little star How I wonder what you are Then the traveller in the dark Thanks you for your tiny spark He could not see where to go If you did not twinkle so Twinkle, twinkle little star How I wonder what you are In the dark blue sky you keep And often through my curtains peep For you never shut your eye 'Til the sun is in the sky Twinkle, twinkle little star How I wonder what you are As your bright and tiny spark Lights the traveller in the dark Though I know not what you are Twinkle, twinkle little star Twinkle, twinkle little star How I wonder what you are
