RHYMES FROM THE REAL MOTHER GOOSE
Volume 7

Illustrated by Blanche Fisher Wright

THE BUNCH OF BLUE RIBBONS

Oh, dear, what can the matter be?
Oh, dear, what can the matter be?
Oh, dear, what can the matter be?
Johnny’s so long at the fair.

He promised he’d buy me a bunch
of blue ribbons,
He promised he’d buy me a bunch
of blue ribbons,
He promised he’d buy me a bunch
of blue ribbons,
To tie up my bonny brown hair.

THE MOUSE AND THE CLOCK

Hickory, dickory, dock!
The mouse ran up the clock;
The clock struck one,
And down he run,
Hickory, dickory, dock.

THE LITTLE MOUSE

I have seen you, little mouse,
Running all about the house,
Through the hole your little eye
In the wainscot peeping sly,
Hoping soon some crumbs to steal,
To make quite a hearty meal.
Look before you venture out,
See if pussy is about.
If she’s gone, you’ll quickly run
To the larder for some fun;
Round about the dishes creep,
Taking into each a peep,
To choose the daintiest that’s there,
Spoiling things you do not care.

LITTLE TOMMY TUCKER

Little Tommy Tucker
Sings for his supper.
What shall he eat?
White bread and butter.
How will he cut it,
Without e’er a knife?
How will he be married
Without e’er a wife?

THE BOY AND THE SPARROW

A little cock-sparrow sat on a green tree,
And he chirruped, he chirruped, so merry was he.
A naughty boy came with his wee bow and arrow,
Determined to shoot this little cock-sparrow.
“This little cock-sparrow shall make me a stew,
And his giblets shall make me a little pie, too.”
“Oh, no,” says the sparrow, “I won’t make a stew.”
So he flapped his wings, and away he flew.

LITTLE JACK HORNER

Little Jack Horner
Sat in the corner,
Eating of Christmas pie.
He put in his thumb,
And pulled out a plum,
And said, “What a good boy am I!”
