kids sing songs
Shoe the horse

Shoe the horse, shoe the colt,
[Pg 30]Shoe the wild mare;
Here a nail, there a nail,
Yet she goes bare.


Sing! sing! what shall I sing?
The cat's run away with the pudding-bag string.


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,
And was not that a dainty dish to set before the king?
The king was in the parlour, counting out his money;
The queen was in the kitchen, eating bread and honey;
The maid was in the garden, hanging out the clothes;
There came a little blackbird, and pecked off her nose.
