A, B, C, and D
About the bush, Willie
A carrion crow sat on an oak
A diller, a dollar, a ten o’clock scholar! 
A duck and a drake
A farmer went trotting, upon his gray mare
A hill full, a hole full
A little boy went into a barn
A little cock-sparrow sat on a green tree
A little old man of Derby
A man went a-hunting at Reigate
A riddle, a riddle, as I suppose
A robin and a robin’s son
Around the green gravel the grass grows green
As I walked by myself
As I was going along, along
As I was going to Derby all on a market-day
As I was going to St. Ives
As I was going to sell my eggs
As I was going up Pippen Hill
As I went through the garden gap
As I went to Bonner
As little Jenny Wren
As round as an apple, as deep as a cup
As soft as silk, as white as milk
As the days grow longer
As Tommy Snooks and Bessy Brooks
A sunshiny shower
A swarm of bees in May
At the siege of Belleisle
Away, birds, away!

Baa, baa, black sheep
Barber, barber, shave a pig
Bat, bat
Bell horses, bell horses, what time of day? 
Bessy Bell and Mary Gray
“Billy, Billy, come and play”
Birds of a feather flock together
Black within and red without
Bobby Shaftoe’s gone to sea
Burnie bee, burnie bee
Buttons, a farthing a pair! 
Bye, baby bunting

Christmas comes but once a year
Christmas is coming, the geese are getting fat
Clap, clap handies
“Cock, cock, cock, cock”
Cocks crow in the morn
Cold and raw the north wind doth blow
Come when you’re called
Cross patch, draw the latch
Cry, baby, cry
Curly-locks, Curly-locks, wilt thou be mine? 
Cushy cow, bonny, let down thy milk

Daffy-down-dilly has come to town
Dame Trot and her cat
Dance, little Baby, dance up high! 
Dance, Thumbkin, dance
Dance to your daddie
Dear, dear! what can the matter be? 
Dickory, dickory, dare
Diddle diddle dumpling, my son John
Ding, dong, bell
Doctor Foster went to Glo’ster
Donkey, donkey, old and gray
Doodle doodle doo

Elizabeth, Elspeth, Betsy, and Bess
Every lady in this land

Flour of England, fruit of Spain
For every evil under the sun
For want of a nail, the shoe was lost
Four and Twenty tailors
Friday nights dream, on Saturday told

Georgy Porgy, pudding and pie
Girls and boys, come out to play
Goosey, goosey, gander
Great A, little a
Great A, little a

Handy Pandy, Jack-a-dandy
Hark, hark! the dogs do bark! 
Hector Protector was dressed all in green
Here am I, little jumping Joan
Here goes my lord
Here sits the Lord Mayor
Here’s Sulky Sue
Here we go round the mulberry bush
Hey, diddle, diddle!
