NURSERY RYMES OR OH BE CAREFUL
 
div
 
I'll sing you a little song on nurs'ry rhymes and things
'When a young man's fancy turns to love' as the Poet gaily sings

Chorus: Oh, be careful, oh my young friends, do be careful
Oh, be careful, that's the moral of my song.


Old Mother Hubbard went to the cupboard
For something to quench her thirst
When she got there the cupboard was bare
Her husband had been there first.

Chorus: Oh, be careful, oh my young friends, do be careful
Oh, be careful, and always get there first.


Little Jack Horner sat in the corner
Eating his Christmas fare
He stuck in his thumb and 'stead of a plum
He said, 'Hullo, there's hair.'

Chorus: Oh, be careful, oh my young friends, do be careful
Oh, be careful, be careful of 'There's hair'.


The boy stood on the burning deck
And he refused to leave
He said, 'When this deck gets burnt out
I've got another up my sleeve.'

Chorus: Oh, be careful, oh my young friends, do be careful
Oh, be careful, always have a deck up your sleeve.


Mary had a little lamb
With fleas as white as snow
And everywhere that Mary went
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh.

Chorus: Oh, be careful, oh my young friends, do be careful
Oh, be careful, keep away from the fleece.


Jack and Jill went up the hill
And why they went seems strange
Jack fell down and broke his half-crown
And Jill went after the change.

Chorus: Oh, be careful, oh my young friends, do be careful
Oh, be careful, never go after the change.


Little Miss Muffett she sat on a tuffet
Eating some curds and whey
There came a big spider and sat down beside her
But 'there'll come a time some day'

Chorus: Oh, be careful, oh my young friends, do be careful
Oh, be careful, never take lunch with a spider.


A house without a roof, my friends
Or a ship without a sail
The most uncomfortable thing in this world
Is a shirt without a collar-stud

Chorus: Oh, be careful, oh my young friends, do be careful
Oh, be careful, never lose your collar-stud.
