There was a monkey climbed a tree,
When he fell down, then down fell he.
There was a crow sat on a stone,
When he was gone, then there was none.
There was an old wife did eat an apple,
When she had ate two, she had ate a couple
There was a horse going to the mill,
When he went on, he stood not still.
There was a butcher cut his thumb,
When it did bleed, then blood did come.
There was a lackey ran a race,
When he ran fast, he ran a pace.
There was a cobbler clouting shoon,
When they were mended, they were done.
There was a chandler making a candle,
When he them strip, he did them handle.
There was a navy went to Spain,
When it returned it came again.
