A sailor went to sea

Baa baa black sheep 

Bobbie Shafto

Frère Jacques

Girls and boys

Goosey goosey gander

Go tell Aunt Nancy

Here we go … 

Hickory dickory dock! 

Hush, little baby

I love little pussy

It’s raining.  It’s pouring

Jack and Jill

Lavender’s blue

Little Bo-Peep

London Bridge is falling down 

London’s burning! 

Mary had a little lamb

Mary, Mary, quite contrary

My Bonnie lies over the ocean

Oh dear, … 

Old MacDonald 

One, two, three, four, five

Oranges and lemons

Polly, put the kettle on!

Ring-a-ring o’roses

Rock-a-bye baby

Row, row, row your boat

Skip to my Lou

Ten green bottles

The drunken sailor

The farmer’s in his dell

The grand old Duke of York

There’s a hole in my bucket 

The wheels on the bus 

This old man

Three blind mice 

Twinkle, twinkle little star  

Yankee Doodle
