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 got
Was in his mother's pail.




He went to catch a dickey bird
And thought he could not fail
Because he'd got a little salt
To put upon its tail




Once Simon made a great snowball
And brought it in to roast
He laid it down before the fire
And soon the ball was lost




He went for water in a sieve
But soon it all ran through
And now poor Simple Simon
Bids you all bye bye
