Four and twenty tailors

Four and twenty tailors
Went to kill a snail,
The best man among them
Durst not touch her tail;
She put out her horns
Like a little Kyloe cow,
Run, tailors, run,
Or she'll kill you all e'en now.

Four stiff-standers

Four stiff-standers,
Four dilly-danders,
Two lookers, two crookers,
And a wig-wag.

For want of a nail the shoe was lost

For want of a nail the shoe was lost,
For want of a shoe the horse was lost,
For want of a horse the rider was lost,
For want of a rider the battle was lost,
For want of a battle the kingdom was lost,
And all for the want of a horseshoe nail.

Formed long ago, yet made today

Formed long ago, yet made today,
Employed while others sleep;
What few would like to give away,
Nor any wish to keep.

Fiddle-de-dee

Fiddle-de-dee, fiddle-de-dee,
The fly shall marry the humble-bee.
They went to the church, and married was she:
The fly has married the humble-bee.

Father Short came down the lane

Father Short came down the lane;
Oh! I'm obliged to hammer and smite
From four in the morning till eight at night,
For a bad master, and a worse dame.

Flour of England, fruit of Spain

Flour of England, fruit of Spain,
Met together in a shower of rain;
Put in a bag, tied round with a string;
If you'll tell me this riddle,
I'll give you a ring.
