Jack Sprat
    Had a cat,
It had but one ear;
    It went to buy butter
When butter was dear.
Jack Sprat could eat no fat,
    His wife could eat no lean,
And so between the two of them
    They licked the platter clean.
Little Jack Sprat
    Once had a pig,
It was not very little,
    Nor yet very big;
It was not very lean,
    It was not very fat -
It's a good pig to grunt,
    Said little Jack Sprat.

Little Jack Horner
Sat in the corner,
Eating a Christmas pie;

He put in his thumb
And pulled out a plum,
And said, What a good boy am I!
