Lyrics for ‘Simple Simon

Simple Simon met a pieman,
Going to the fair;
Says Simple Simon to the pieman,
“Let me taste your ware.”

Says the pieman to Simple Simon,
“Show me first your penny,”
Says Simple Simon to the pieman,
“Indeed, I have not any.”

Simple Simon went a-fishing
For to catch a whale;
All the water he could find
Was in his mother’s pail!

Simple Simon went to look
If plums grew on a thistle;
He pricked his fingers very much,
Which made poor Simon whistle.

He went to catch a dicky bird,
And thought he could not fail,
Because he had a little salt,
To put upon its tail.

He went for water with a sieve,
But soon it ran all through;
And now poor Simple Simon
Bids you all adieu.

Lyrics for ‘Cinderella (Dressed in Yella)’

Cinderella dressed in yella,
Went upstairs to kiss her fella.
By mistake she kissed a snake,
How many doctors will it take?
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, etc.

Cinderella dressed in blue,
Went upstairs to tie her shoe,
By mistake she tied a knot,
How many knots will she make?
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, etc.

Cinderella dressed in green,
Went downtown to buy a ring,
By mistake she bought a fake,
How many days before it breaks?
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, etc.

The counting continues as long as the jumper doesn’t miss a jump.

Musette in D (Bach) | Easy Piano Sheet Music

In 1725, Anna Magdalena,  Johann Sebastian Bach’s wife, was presented with the Anna Magdalena Bach Notebook, which contains a collection of Baroque dances such as the minuet, gavotte, polonaise, march, rondeau, and musette– and includes the following Musette in D, BWV Anh. 126. These Baroque dances were used as introductions to Baroque-style, two-voice counterpoint.  It is believed that the pieces in the notebook were composed by not only Johann Sebastian Bach, but also by many other Baroque composers like Johann Christian Bach, Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach, Johann Gottfried Bernhard, Johann Gottfried Heinrich, Christian Petzold, Georg Böhm, François Couperin and others. Musette in D remains one of the most popular pieces among classical musicians.

Baa, Baa, Black Sheep | Beginner Piano Sheet Music

Baa, Baa, Black Sheep is a popular English nursery rhyme with its earliest surviving version dating back to 1731. The song has been used in popular culture as both a metaphor and an allusion. The song is sung to the variant of the French melody Ah! vous dirai-je, maman, which is similar to the Alphabet Song and Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star. With the rhyme in trochaic metre in its single stanza, the Roud Folk Song Index classifies its lyrics and variations as number 4439. The song is said to be about the resentment towards taxes levied on the Medieval English wool trade as well as the slave trade. However, in today’s modern times, the nursery rhyme is used for educational purposes which are to teach children about life in the countryside and to imitate the sound that sheep make.

Have you any wool?
Yes sir, yes sir,
Three bags full!

And one for the little boy

Yes sir, yes sir,
Three bags full.

have you any wool?
yes sir, yes sir,
three needles full.
