"Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled pepper;
A peck of pickled pepper Peter Piper picked;
If Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled pepper;
Where's the peck of pickled pepper Peter Piper picked?
Hey! Diddle, diddle,
The cat and the fiddle,
The cow jumped over the moon;
The little dog laughed
To see such sport,
And the dish ran away with the spoon.
Baa, baa, black sheep,
Have you any wool?
'Yes, sir, yes, sir,
Three bags full:
One for my master,
And one for my dame,
And one for the little boy
Who lives in the lane.'
Tweedle-Dum and Tweedle-dee
Resolved to have a battle
For Tweedle-Dum said Tweedle-dee
Had spoiled his nice new rattle.
Just then flew by a monstrous crow
As big as a tar-barrel,
Which frightened both the heros so
They quite forgot their quarrel."
