And these are the rhymes you can choose:  


Pop goes the weasel

Up and down the City Road,
in and out the Eagle,
that’s the way the money goes.
Pop goes the weasel!

Half a pound of tuppenny rice,
half a pound of treacle,
mix it up and make it nice.
Pop goes the weasel!

Every night when I go out
the monkey’s on the table.
Take a stick and knock it off.
Pop goes the weasel!


The wise men of Gotham

Three wise men of Gotham,
they went to sea in a bowl.
If the bowl had been stronger
my story would have been longer.

Humpty Dumpty

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall.
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
All the King's horses and all the King’s men
couldn't put Humpty together again.


The Dutch versions you can find on the Dutch 'side' of this blog.
