ARTHUR’S LIMERICKS ON NURSERY RHYMES..


From my old collection of 2006 ie 14 years ago…ENJOY…


1. JACK SPRATT


JACK SPRATT WAS ALLERGIC TO FAT,


THERE ARE MANY AROUND JUST LIKE THAT.


BECAUSE OF THIS STATE


AND YET HAVE A CLEAN PLATE,


FAT WAS EATEN BY HIS WIFE, MRS. SPRATT.


2. LITTLE MISS MUFFET


I’LL TELL YOU ABOUT YOUNG MISS MUFFET,


EATING CURDS AND WHEY WHILE ON A TUFFET.


A LARGE SPIDER CAME DOWN


WHICH CAUSED HER TO FROWN


AND TO THINK SHOULD SHE / SHOULDN’T SHE SNUFF IT!!


3. THE GRAND OLD DUKE OF YORK


THE DUKE OF YORK WAS A LEADER OF MEN,


HE MARCHED THEM UPHILL AND THEN DOWN AGAIN.


HALF WAY UP ON THE CLIMB


THEY WERECOVERED IN GRIME,


THEY KNEW NOT FOR WHY, WHEREFORE OR WHEN!


4. OLD MOTHER HUBBARD


MOTHER HUBBARD LIVED ALONE WITH HER DOG,


WELL FED, HE WAS AS FAT AS A HOG.


THERE WAS A DOG’S CUPBOARD


USED BY MA HUBBARD,


BUT IT’S EMPTY NOW, NOT EVEN SOME GROG!!


5. DING DONG BELL


BELLS ARE RINGING, THE CAT’S IN THE WELL,


TOM GREEN PUSHED HIM IN, SAYING HE FELL!


JONNY STOUT HEARD HIM MEW,


WHAT ELSE COULD HE DO,


BUT GO IN, GET HIM OUT. WHAT A SMELL!!
