Dance little baby
Dance, little baby, dance up high;
Never mind, baby, mother is by;
Crow and caper, caper and crow,
There, little baby, there you go;

Up to the ceiling, down to the ground,
Backwards and forwards, round and round;
Dance, little baby, and mother shall sing,
With the merry gay coral, ding-a-ding, ding.

Grand old Duke of York
Oh, the grand old Duke of York,
He had ten thousand men;
He marched them up to the top of the hill,
And he marched them down again.

And, when they were up they were up;
And when they were down they were down.
But when they were only halfway up,
They were neither up nor down

Went up the hill
To fetch a pail of water.

And broke his crown
And Jill came tumbling after.

And home did trot
As fast as he could caper
Went to bed
And plastered his head
With vinegar and brown paper.
