Simple Simon

Standard

SIMPLE SIMON

Simple Simon met a pieman, going to the fair;

Said Simple Simon to the pieman,

“Let me taste your ware.”

Said the pieman to Simple Simon,

“Show me first your penny.”

Said Simple Simon to the pieman,

“Indeed I have not any.”

He went to catch a dickey bird,

And thought he could not fai,

Because he’d got a little salt

To put upon its tail.

Simple Simon went a-fishing,

For to catch a whale;

All the water he had got

Was in his mother’s pail.

He went for water in a sieve,

But soon it all ran through;

And now poor Simple Simon

Bids you all adieu.
