English Rhymes
Tomy Snooks and Bessy Brooks
Wee walking out one Sunday
Says Tommy Snooks to Bessy Brooks
"To-morrow will be Monday".

Pitter-patter,
Pitter-patter
Listen to the rain!
Pitter-patter,
Pitter-patter,
On the window pane!

Rain, rain, Go Away

Rain, rain, go away,
Come again another day;
Little Johnny wants to play!

Rain, Rain,

Rain, rain,
Go to Spain
Fair weather
Come again.

Rain on the green grass,
And rain on the tree,
Rain on the house-top
But not on me.
 

There was a young fellow of Perth
Who was born on the day of his birth;
He was married, they say
On his wife's wedding day,
And he died when he quitted the earth.

The Rainbow

Boats sail on the river,
And ships sail on the seas,
But clouds that sail across the sky
Are prettier far than these.

Rain, Wind and Snow

Rain, rain, April rain!
Bring the flowers back again,
Yellow cowslip, violet blue,
Butter-cups and daisies too.

Wind, wind! Autumn wind!
He the leafy trees has thinned,
Loudly hear him roar and shout;
Bar the door and keep him out.

Snow, snow, pure white snow!
O'er the fields thy covering throw.
Cover up the seed so warm
Through the winter safe from harm.

Rain, wind, snow, all three,
Each in turn shall welcome be,
Each and all in turn are sent
On the earth with good intend.
