Little Miss Muffet

Sat on a tuffet,

Eating her curds and whey;

Along came a spider,

Who sat down beside her

And frightened Miss Muffet away

Little Miss Muffet,

Sat on a Tuffet,

Eating her Bread and Jam,

Along came a Spider,

While she was Drinking her Cider,

And she ran away and her shoes fell off!
