* MOTHER GOOSE RIDDLES FOR DANCES:

 

ELIZABETH

 

SHE, Elspeth, Betsy, and Bess,

They all went together to seek a bird's nest;

They found a bird's nest with five eggs in,

They all took one, and left four in.

 

RIDDLE:  "Who was she, and what's the dance?" ELIZABETH (Monday Night)

 

NANCY DAWSON

 

Nancy Dawson was so fine

She wouldn't get up to serve the swine;

She lies in bed till eight or nine,

So it's Oh, poor Nancy Dawson.

And do ye ken Nancy Dawson, honey?

The wife who sells the barley, honey?

She won't get up to feed her swine,

And do ye ken Nancy Dawson, honey?

 

RIDDLE:  "She had no FAITH in getting up, so she was...and the dance is..." FAITHLESS NANCY DAWSON

 

LITTLE JENNY WREN

 

Little Jenny Wren fell sick,

Upon a time;

In came Robin Redbreast

And brought her cake and wine.

 

"Eat well of my cake, Jenny,

Drink well of my wine."

"Thank you, Robin, kindly,

You shall be mine."

 

Jenny she got well,

And stood upon her feet,

And told Robin plainly

She loved him not a bit.

 

Robin being angry,

Hopped upon a twig,

Saying, "Out upon you!  Fie upon you!

Bold-faced jig!"

 

RIDDLE(two words): "The jilted bird was one __  __"? MAD ROBIN

 

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.

 

When up Jack got and off did trot,

As fast as he could caper,

To old Dame Dob, who patched his nob

With vinegar and brown paper.

 

RIDDLE:  (two words):  "What is it that Old Dame Dob cared for (as his PCP)"?  JACK'S HEALTH

 

DANCE TO YOUR DADDIE

 

Dance to your daddie,

My bonnie laddie;

Dance to your daddie, my bonnie lamb;

You shall get a fishy,

On a little dishy;

You shall get a fishy, when the boat comes home.

 

RIDDLE:  "What dance uses the tune to this rhyme?"  HUDSON BARN
