SOLOMON
GRUNDY

Solomon Grundy,

Born on Monday,

Christened on Tuesday,

Married on Wednesday,

Took ill on Thursday,

Worse on Friday,

Died on Saturday,

Buried on Sunday

This is the end of Solomon Grundy

SNEEZE

Sneeze on Monday, sneeze for danger;

Sneeze on Tuesday, kiss a stranger;

Sneeze on Wednesday, get a letter;

Sneeze on Thursday, something better;

Sneeze on Friday; sneeze for sorrow;

Sneeze on Saturday,
see your sweetheart

tomorrow.

THE CUCKOO

In April,               
come he will,

In May,               
sing all day

In June,               
change his tune

In July,                
prepare to fly

In August,            
go he must!
