Text and Images from World Famous Nursery Rhymes – Volume 2
Hush-a-bye, baby, on the tree-top,
When the wind blows the cradle will rock;
When the bough breaks the cradle will fall,
Down will come baby cradle and all.
Sing a Song of Sixpence
Sing a song of sixpence,
A pocket full of rye;
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 the 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 picked off her nose.
