More Jolly Rhymes of Mother Goose — Lois Lenski, 1922

This is the last of the Lenski nursery rhyme pictures, and there were a couple of rhymes here I didn’t know.

This one is very sweet….

Bossy-Cow, Bossy-Cow

Bossy-cow, bossy.cow, where do you lie?
In the green meadow under the sky.

Billy-horse, billy-horse, where do you lie?
Out in the stable with nobody nigh.

Birdies bright, birdies sweet, where do you lie?
Up in the tree-tops, –oh, ever so high!

Baby dear, baby love, where do you lie?
In my warm crib, with Mama close by.

And this one is very strange….

There Was a Man In Our Town

There was a man in our town,
And he was wondrous wise;
He jumped into a bramble bush,
And scratched out both his eyes;

And when he saw his eyes were out,
With all high might and main,
He jumped into another bush,
And scratched them in again.
