34 SONGS FOR THE NURSERY.
She went to the fruit-shop,
To buy her a plum; When she came back,
Puss was beating a drum.
She went to the miller's,
To grind her some corn ; When she came back,
Puss was blowing a horn. She went to the upholsterer's,
To buy a new bed; But while she was out,
Naughty Pussy had fled.
She went out again,
And, from a man from the fair, She bought for herself
A nice rush-bottomed chair. She went out the next time,
To buy Pussy a hat; When she came back,
Puss was catching a rat.
She went to the baker's,
To buy her a bun ; When she came back,
Puss was loading a gun. She went to the grocer's,
To buy her some figs: When she came back,
Puss was feeding the pigs.
She went to the butcher's,
For meat, I suppose; When she came back,
Puss was washing some clothes. She next bought some fur,
And a dress of sky-blue; Says Dame Trot, " Say < Thank you ;' But Pussy said, " Mew !"
DAME TROT AND HER COMICAL CAT.
Old Dame Trot
Set off to the fair, With her cat on her shoulder,
To see the folks there. The people all laughed
As they saw them go by; Says the Dame, " I'll laugh too;"
But says Pussy, " I'll cry."
She bought her some shoes,
Of a very bright red; But when she came back,
She found Pussy in bed. She went to the cloak-shop,
And bought her a cloak ; When she came back again,
Pussy just had awoke.
She went to the dairy,
To buy her some milk; When she came back,
Puss was sewing on silk. She went to the fish-shop,
And bought her some fish; When she came back,
Puss was washing a dish.
She went to the florist's,
To buy her a rose; When she came back,
Pussy stood on her nose.
A COBWEB MADE TO ORDER.
Aunt Effie's Rhymes.
A hungry spider made a web
Of thread so very fine, Your tiny fingers scarce could feel The little slender line.
Round about and round about,
And round about it spun, Straight across, and back again. Until the web was done.
