As fast as he could caper.
There his mother bound his head,
With vinegar and brown paper.

The cat and the fiddle,
The cow jumped over the moon,
The little dog laughed,
To see such fun,
And the dish ran away with the spoon.

3 An Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe

And she whipped them all soundly and sent them to bed.

Duke of York audio The Grand old Duke of York he had ten thousand men
He marched them up to the top of the hill

And when they were only halfway up
They were neither up nor down.

Oh wasn't that a dainty dish to set before the king?
The king was in his counting house counting out his money,
The queen was in the parlour eating bread and honey
The maid was in the garden hanging out the clothes,
When down came a blackbird and pecked off her nose!

12 Insy Wincy Spider

When the bough breaks, the cradle will fall
And down will come baby, cradle and all

This little piggy stayed at home,
This little piggy had roast beef,
This little piggy had none.
And this little piggy went...
"Wee wee wee" all the way home...

13 Everything At Once

As Sly as A fox, as strong as an OX. As fast as A hare, as Brave as A bear. As Free as A bird, as neat as A word. As quiet as A mouse, as big as A house.

All I wanna be, I wanna be All, OH. All I wanna be is everything.

As Mean as A wolf, as sharp as A Tooth. As Deep as A bite, as Dark as the night. As sweet as A song, as right as A wrong. As Long as A Road, as Ugly as A toad.

As Pretty as A picture hanging from A fixture. Strong like A Family, strong as I wanna be. Bright as Day, as Light as play. As hard as nails, as grand as A whale.

All I wanna be OH, All I wanna be, OH. All I wanna be is everything. Everything at once. Everything at once, OH. Everything at once.

As warm as the sun, as silly as fun. As cool as A tree, as scary as the sea. As hot as Fire, cold as Ice. Sweet as sugar and everything nice.

As old as time, as straight as A line. As royal as A Queen, as buzzed as A bee. Stealthy as A tiger, smooth as A Glider. A melody as Pure, Pure as I wanna be.

All I wanna be OH, All I wanna be, OH. All I wanna be is everything. Everything at once.
