Nursery Rhymes

All of the lyrics to the most traditional nursery rhymes with their origins, history and meanings.

The fox and the farmerI had a little pony
Snail, snail, come put out your hornGoosey, goosey, gander, whither shall i wander
Freddie and the cherry-treeBow, wow, wow
Hark, hark, the dogs do barkHey Diddle Diddle
Valentine, oh, valentineCome, let's to bed, says sleepy-head
Dance to your daddyThere was an old crow
The Queen of HeartsTom, Tom, the Piper's Son
High diddle doubt, my candle's outThe north wind doth blow
Pease-pudding hotMultiplication is vexation
Hey! diddle, diddleI Love Little Pussy
Bah, bah, black sheepPoor old Robinson Crusoe
The marriage of cock robin and jenny wrenPat-a-cake, pat-a-cake, baker's man
A little cock sparrow sat on a treeA Apple Pie
Who Stole the Bird's Nest?Old mother Hubbard
One misty moisty morningDickery, dickery, dock
There was a fat man of BombayAs I went to Bonner
There was an old woman called Nothing-at-allLittle polly flinders
He that would thriveUp hill and down dale
Little girl, little girl, where have you beenPat-a-cake, pat-a-cake, baker's man
Old woman, old woman, shall we go a shearingThe rose is red, the violet's blue
Rain, rain, go awayLittle Tom Tittlemouse
Little Tommy TittlemouseWhen the wind is in the east
There was an owl lived in an oakHot Cross Buns
To market, to market, to buy a fat pigLittle Jack Horner
