A Kiss When I Wake
A kiss when I wake in the morning A kiss when I go to bed, A kiss when I burn my fingers, A kiss when I bump my head. A kiss when my bath begins A kiss when my bath is over, My mamma is as full of kisses As nurse is full of pins. A kiss when I pull her hair, A kiss when I play with my rattle; She covered me all over with kisses The day that I fell down stair. A kiss when I give her trouble, A kiss when I give her joy; There's nothing like mamma's kisses To her own little baby boy.

A sailor went to sea, sea, sea. To see what he could see, see, see. But all that he could see, see, see. Was the bottom of the deep blue sea, sea, sea.

Cradle Song
Leep, sleep, beauty bright, Dreaming in the joys of night; Sleep, sleep; in thy sleep Little sorrows sit and weep. Sweet babe, in thy face Soft desires I can trace, Secret joys and secret smiles, Little pretty infant wiles. As thy softest limbs I feel,

Smiles as of the morning steal O'er thy cheek, and o'er thy breast Where thy little heart doth rest. O the cunning wiles that creep In thy little heart asleep! When thy little heart doth wake, Then the dreadful night shall break.

The Bees Sneeze and Wheeze

And what does Father do? Bring home money. And what does Mother do? Lay out the money. And what does baby do? Eat up the honey.

The Months
January brings the snow, Makes our feet and fingers glows. February brings the rains, Thaws the frozen lake again. March brings breezes sharp and chill, Shakes the dancing daffodil. April brings the primrose sweet, Scatters daisies at our feet. May brings flocks of pretty lambs, Sporting round their fleecy dams.

June brings tulips, lilies, rose, Fills the children's hands with posies. Hot July brings thunder-showers, Apricots, and gilly-flowers. August brings the sheaves of corn; hen the harvest home is borne. Warm September brings the fruit; Sportsmen then begin to shoot. Brown October brings the pheasant, Then to gather nuts is pleasant. Dull November brings the blast, Hark! the leaves are whirling fast. Cold December brings the sleet, Blazing fire, and Christmas treat.
