Chick, Chick, Chick, Chick, Chicken

Chick, chick, chick, chick, chicken,
Lay a little egg for me.
Chick, chick, chick, chick, chicken,
I want one for my tea.
I haven't had an egg since Easter,
And now it's half past three.
So, chick, chick, chick, chicken,
Lay a little egg for me.


Chinese New Year

You'll find whenever the New Year comes
The Kitchen God will want some plums.
The girls will want some flowers new;
The boys will want firecrackers, too.
A new felt cap will please papa
And a sugar cake for dear mama.

Traditional Chinese nursery rhyme


Five Crispy Pancakes

Five crispy pancakes in a frying pan,
Flip them and toss them and catch them if you can.
Along came (choose a child),
For a pancake one day
Sprinkled it with sugar and took it away.

Four crispy pancakes in a frying pan...


Five Currant Buns

Five currant buns in a bakers shop,
Round and fat with a cherry on the top.
Along came (choose a child),
With a penny one day.
Bought a currant bun and took it away.

Four currant buns in a bakers shop...?


Hot Cross Buns

Hot cross buns,
Hot cross buns.
One a penny, Two a penny.
Hot cross buns.

If you have no daughters,
Give them to your sons.
One a penny, Two a penny.
Hot cross buns.

Hot cross buns are a traditional Easter celebration food.


In Spring I Look Gay

In Spring I look gay,
Decked in comely array,
In Summer more clothing I wear;
When colder it grows,
I fling off my clothes,
And in Winter quite naked appear.

The answer? A tree.


King Boggen

King Boggen, he built a fine new hall;
Pastry and piecrust, that was the wall;
The windows were made of black pudding and white,
Roofed with pancakes - you never saw the like.


Little Peter Rabbit

Little Peter Rabbit's got a fly upon his nose,
Little Peter Rabbit's got a fly upon his nose,
Little Peter Rabbit's got a fly upon his nose,
and he flicked it and it flew away.
Floppy ears and curly whiskers,
Floppy ears and curly whiskers,
Floppy ears and curly whiskers.
And he flicked it and it flew away.

Sung to the tune of "John Brown's Body"


Oats and Beans and Barley Grow

Oats and beans and barley grow,
Oats and beans and barley grow.
Do you or I or anyone know
How oats and beans and barley grow?

First the farmer sows his seed,
Then he stands and takes his ease,
Stamps his feet and claps his hands
And turns around to view the lands.

Oats and beans and barley grow,
Oats and beans and barley grow.
Do you or I or anyone know
How oats and beans and barley grow?


Pancake Song

Mix a pancake,
Beat a pancake,
Put it in a pan.
Cook a pancake,
Toss a pancake,
Catch it if you can.
