Which finger did he bite?
This little finger on my right.

Five Little Speckled Frogs
Five little speckled frogs
Sat on speckled log
Catching the most delicious bugs — yum, yum

frogs.

Ten Green Bottles
Ten green bottles hanging on the wall

And if one green bottle should accidentally fall
There’ll be nine green bottles hanging on the wall.

One Two Buckle my Shoe
One two buckle my shoe
Three, four, knock at the door
Five, six, pick up sticks
Seven, eight, lay them straight
Nine, ten, a big fat hen
Eleven, twelve, dig and delve
Thirteen, fourteen, maids a-courting
Fifteen, sixteen, maids in the kitchen
Seventeen, eighteen, maids in waiting
Nineteen, twenty, my plate is empty

Mary at the Kitchen Door
One, two, three, four
Mary at the kitchen door:
Five, six, seven, eight,
Eating cherries off a plate.

And one leaf to bring glorious health,
Are all in a four-leaf clover

One, He Loves (counting petals on a daisy)
One he loves, two, he loves:
Three, he loves, they say.
Four he loves with all his hear;
Five he casts away.
Six he loves, seven she loves;
Eight they both love.
Nine, he comes; ten he tarries;
Eleven, he courts, twelve, he marries.

Five Rosy Apples
Five rosy apples by the cottage door,
One tumbled off a twig and then there were four.
Four rosy apples by the cottage door,
The farmer’s wife took one and then there were three.
Three rosy apples by the cottage door,
I think I’ll have one and then there’ll be two.
Two rosy apples hanging in the sun,
You have the big one and that will leave one.
One rosy apple, soon it is gone.
The wind blew it off the branch and now there are none


Two little dicky birds,
Two Little Dicky Birds
Sitting on a wall;
One named Peter,
The other named Paul.
Fly away, Peter!
Fly away, Paul!
Come back, Peter!
Come back, Paul!



Two Little Hands
Two little hands go clap, clap, clap
Two little feet go tap, tap, tap;
Two little eyes are open wide,
One little head goes side to side

30 Days Hath September
Thirty days of September,
April, June and November;
All the rest have thirty-one,
Excepting February alone,
And that has twenty-eight days clear
And twenty-nine in each leap year.

3 Blind Mice
Three blind mice,
Three blind mice,
See how they run,
See how they run!
They all ran after  
the farmer�s wife,
Who cut off their tails  
with a carving knife,
Did you ever see such  
a thing in your life,
As three blind mice?
