"James James Morrison Morrison
Weatherby George Dupree
Took great care of his mother,
Though he was only three.
..."
(AA Milne)

I remember the start of that rhyme from early in childhood.

What early childhood rhymes are still in the memories of other OTFers?

Isabel met an enormous bear,
Isabel, Isabel, didn't care;
The bear was hungry, the bear was ravenous,
The bear's big mouth was cruel and cavernous,
The bear said, "Isabel, glad to meet you"
"How do, Isabel. Now I'll eat you!"
Isabel, Isabel, didn't worry.
Isabel didn't scream or scurry.
She washed her hands and she straightened her hair up,
Then Isabel quietly ate the bear up.

(Ogden Nash)

It goes on for ages, there's a witch, and a giant. But that's the best bit.

Montezuma met a puma coming through the rye
Montezuma turned the puma into apple pie

The Sair Finger! That's the one! I remember having to learn it and recite it at a Burns supper in primary 6.

The rain it raineth on the just
And also on the unjust fella
But chiefly on the just, because
The unjust stole the just's umbrella

There's another Ogden Nash one which goes something like:

"Spring is sprung, the Grass is riz,
I wonder where the boidies is,
..."

I can't recall how it went after that.

I'm down in the jungle
Living in a tent
Better than a prefab'
No rent.

pardon me for being so rude
it was not me it was my food
it felt so lonely down below
it just popped up to say hello

Jimski, as far as I can garner, there is no more of that Spring poem. It just seems to be those two lines.

Beans, beans, the musical fruit....

10, 20, 30, 40, 50 or more
Frank got Betty down on the floor
Kissed her once and he kissed her twice
Pulled down her knickers and said "Ooh, nice!"
