These are really old classic nursery rhymes we remember from our own childhoods, suitable for children ages 3 and up.

Buckle My Shoe

One, two
Buckle my shoe
Three, four
Close the door
Five, six
Pick up sticks
Seven, eight
Lay them straight
Nine, ten
Start again.

 Hickory, Dickory, Dock

Hickory, dickory, dock
The mouse ran up the clock.
The clock struck one,
The mouse ran down,
Hickory, dickory, dock.
 

Diddle, Diddle, Dumpling

Diddle, diddle, dumpling
My son John,
Went to bed with one shoe on;
One shoe off, and one shoe on,
Diddle, diddle, dumpling,
My son John.
 

A Diller, a Dollar

A diller, a dollar,
A ten o’clock scholar
What makes you come so soon?
You used to come at ten o’clock
But now you come at noon!
 

Hey Diddle, Diddle

Hey diddle, diddle,
The cat and the fiddle,
The cow jumped over the moon;
The little dog laughed
To see such sport,
And the dish ran away with the spoon.
 

Little Bo Peep

Little Bo Peep has lost her sheep,
And can’t tell where to find them,
Leave them alone and they’ll come home,
Wagging their tails behind them.
 

Little Boy Blue

Little Boy Blue
Come blow your horn,
The sheep’s in the meadow,
The cow’s in the corn;
But where is the boy
Who looks after the sheep?
He’s under the haystack
Fast asleep.
 

Baa, Baa, Black Sheep

Baa, baa, black sheep
Have you any wool?
Yes sir, yes sir,
Three bags full.
One for the master,
And one for the dame,
And one for the little boy
Who lives down the lane.
 

Rain, Rain

Rain, rain, go away,
Come again another day.
 

It’s Raining, It’s Pouring

It’s raining, it’s pouring,
The old man is snoring,
He bumped his head
And went to bed
And he couldn’t get up in the morning.
 

Mary, Mary, Quite Contrary

Mary, Mary, quite contrary
How does your garden grow?
With silver bells, and cockle shells,
And pretty maids all in a row.
 

Roses are Red

Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
Sugar is sweet,
And so are you.
 

Jack and Jill

Jack and Jill
Went up the hill
To fetch a pail of water;
Jack fell down
And broke his crown
And Jill came tumbling after.
 

Jack Be Nimble

Jack be nimble,
Jack be quick,
Jack jump over
The candlestick.
 

I Put a Seed

I put a seed into the ground
And said, “I’ll watch it grow.”
I watered it and cared for it
As well as I could know.
One day, I walked in my backyard
And oh, what did I see?
My seed had popped itself right out
Without consulting me.
 

There Was a Little Girl

There was a little girl
Who had a little curl
Right in the middle of her forehead;
When she was good, she was very, very good,
And when she was bad, she was horrid.
 

Georgie Peorgie

Georgie Peorgie, pudding and pie,
Kissed the girls and made them cry;
When the boys came out to play
Georgie Peorgie ran away.
 

Humpty Dumpty

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall;
All the king’s horses,
And all the king’s men
Couldn’t put Humpty
Together again.
 

Little Jack Horner

Little Jack Horner
Sat in a corner
Eating his Christmas pie;
He put in his thumb
And pulled out a plumb
And said, “What a good boy am I?”
 

Mary Had a Little Lamb

Mary had a little lamb,
Its fleece was white as snow;
And everywhere that Mary went
The lamb was sure to go.
It followed her to school one day,
That was against the rule;
It made the children laugh and play
To see a lamb at school
And so the teacher turned it out
But still it lingered near
And waited patiently about
‘Till Mary did appear.
“Why does the lamb love Mary so?”
The eager children cried.
“Why, Mary loves the lamb, you know,”
The teacher did reply.
 

Old Mother Hubbard

Old Mother Hubbard
Went to the cupboard
To get her poor dog a bone,
But when she got there,
The cupboard was bare,
And so her poor dog had none.
 

Old King Cole

Old King Cole
Was a merry old soul
And a merry old soul was he;
He called for his pipe,
And he called for his bowl,
And he called for his fiddlers three.
 

Ladybug, Ladybug

Ladybug, ladybug,
Fly away home,
Your house is on fire
And your children are gone.
 

Sing a Song of Sixpence

Sing a song of sixpence,
A pocket full of rye,
Four and twenty blackbirds
Baked in a pie.
When the pie was opened
The birds began to sing;
Wasn’t that a dainty dish
To set before the King?
The King was in his counting house
Counting out his money,
The queen was in the parlor
Eating bread and honey.
The maid was in the garden
Hanging out the clothes,
Along came a blackbird
And pecked off her nose.
 

Seesaw, Margery Daw

Seesaw, Margery Daw
Jenny shall have a new master;
She shall have but a penny a day
Because she can’t work any faster.
 
[A seesaw is a teeter-totter, that piece of playground equipment that looks like a plank of wood set upon a log and goes up and down.]
 

Jack Sprat

Jack Sprat could eat no fat
His wife could eat no lean
And so between the two of them
They licked the platter clean.
 

Three Blind Mice

Three blind mice,
Three blind mice,
See how they run!
See how they run!
They all ran after the farmer’s wife,
Who cut off their tails with a carving knife!
Did you ever see such a sight in your life
As three blind mice?
 

Three Little Kittens

Three little kittens lost their mittens
And they began to cry,
“Oh mother dear,
We very much fear
That we have lost our mittens.”
“Lost your mittens?
You naughty kittens!
Then you shall have no pie!”
“Me-ow, me-ow, me-ow.”
“No, you shall have no pie.”
“Me-ow, me-ow, me-ow.”
 
The three little kittens found their mittens
And they began to cry,
“Oh mother dear,
See here, see here,
See, we have found our mittens!”
“Put on your mittens
You silly kittens
And you may have some pie.”
“Purr, purr, purr,
Oh let us have the pie!
Purr, purr, purr.”
 
The three little kittens put on their mittens
And soon ate up the pie,
“Oh mother dear,
We greatly fear
That we have soiled our mittens!”
“Soiled your mittens?
You naughty kittens!”
Then they began to sigh,
“Me-ow, me-ow, me-ow.”
Then they began to sigh,
“Me-ow, me-ow, me-ow.”
 
The three little kittens washed their mittens
And hung them out to dry,
“Oh mother dear,
Do you not hear
That we have washed our mittens?”
“Washed your mittens?
Oh, you’re good kittens!
But I smell a rat close by;
Hush, hush! Me-ow, me-ow.”
“We smell a rat close by,
Me-ow, me-ow, me-ow.”
 

There was an Old Woman

There was an old woman
Who lived in a shoe;
She had so many children
She didn’t know what to do;
She gave them some broth
Without any bread
And spanked them all soundly
And put them to bed.
 

Star Light, Star Bright

Star light, star bright,
First star I see tonight,
I wish I may, I wish I might,
Have the wish I wish tonight.
 

When You Wish Upon a Star

When you wish upon a star
Makes no difference who you are
Anything your heart desires
Will come to you.If your heart is in your dream
No request is too extreme
When you wish upon a star
As dreamers do.Fate is kind
She brings to those who love
The sweet fulfillment of
Their secret longingLike a bolt out of the blue
Suddenly it comes in view.
When you wish upon a star
Your dreams come trueWhen a star is born
They possess a gift or two.
One of them is this
They have the power to make a wish come true.When you wish upon a star
Makes no difference who you are
Anything your heart desires
Will come to you,If your heart is in your dream
No request is too extreme
When you wish upon a star
As dreamers do.Fate is kind
She brings to those who love
The sweet fulfillment of
Their secret longing.Like a bolt out of the blue
Suddenly it comes in view.
When you wish upon a star
Your dreams come true.
