8. This is the man all tatter'd and torn,

That kissed the maiden all forlorn,
That milk'd the cow with the crumpled horn,
That tossed the dog,
That worried the cat,
That kill'd the rat,
That ate the malt,
That lay in the house that Jack built.

9. This is the priest all shaven and shorn,

That married the man all tatter'd and torn,
That kiss'd the maiden all forlorn,
That milk'd the cow with the crumpled horn,
That tossed the dog,
That worried the cat,
That kill'd the rat,
That ate the malt,
That lay in the house that Jack built.

10. This is the cock that crow'd in the morn,

That waked the priest all shaven and shorn,
That married the man all tatter'd and torn,
That kiss'd the maiden all forlorn,
That milk'd the cow with the crumpled horn,
That tussed the dog,

That worried the cat,
That kill'd the rat,
That ate the malt,
That lay in the house that Jack built.

11. This is the farmer sowing his corn,
That kept the cock that crow'd in the

morn,
That waked the priest all shaven and shorn,
That married the man all tatter'd and torn,
That kissed the maiden all forlorn,
That milk'd the cow with the crumpled

horn,
That tossed the dog,
That worried the cat,
That kill'd the rat,
That ate the malt,
That lay in the house that Jack built.

AN old woman was sweeping her house, and she M found a little crooked sixpence. “What,” said she, “shall I do with this little sixpence? I will go to market, and buy a little pig.”

As she was coming home, she came to a stile; but the pig would not go over the stile.

She went a little farther, and she met a dog. So she said to the dog

“Dog, dog, bite pig!

Pig won't get over the stile;
And I shan't get home to-night."

So

But the dog would not.

She went a little farther, and she met a stick. she said —

“Stick, stick, beat dog!

Dog won't bite pig?
Pig won't get over the stile,
And I shan't get home to-night.”

So

But the stick would not.

She went a little farther, and she met a fire. she said —

“Fire, fire, burn stick!

Stick won't beat dog;

Dog won't bite pig;
Pig won't get over the stile,
And I shan't get home to-night."

But the fire would not.

She went a little farther, and she met some water. So she said

“ Water, water, quench fire!

Fire won't burn stick;
Stick won't beat dog ;
Dog won't bite pig;
Pig won't get over the stile,
And I shan't get home to-night.”

But the water would not.

She went a little farther, and she met an ox. So she said

“Ox, ox, drink water!
Water won't quench fire;
Fire won't burn stick;
Stick won't beat dog ;
Dog won't bite pig;
Pig won't get over the stile,
And I shan't get home to-night.”
