EEDLE, deedle, dumpling, my son John

Went to bed with his trousers on;
One shoe off, the other shoe on,
Deedle, deedle, dumpling, my son John.


My dame has lost her shoe ; My master's lost his fiddling-stick And don't know what to do.

What is my dame to do?
Till master finds his fiddling-stick,
She'll dance without her shoe.

My dame has lost her shoe,
And master's found his fiddling-stick ;
Sing doodle-doodle-doo!

My dame will dance with you,
While master fiddles his fiddling-stick,
For dame and doodle-doo.

Dame has lost her shoe ;
Gone to bed and scratch'd her head,
And can't tell what to do.

Pussy's in the well!
Who put her in ?--
Little Tommy Lin
Who pulled her out?
Dog with long snout.
What a naughty boy was that
To drown poor pussy-cat,
Who never did any harm,
But kill'd the mice in his father's barn.
