JACK
Jack be nimble, Jack be quick,
Jack jump over the candle-stick.

Play our Jack be Nimble jumping game!

JACK AND HIS FIDDLE
“Jacky, come and give me thy fiddle,
If ever thou mean to thrive.”
“Nay, I’ll not give my fiddle
To any man alive.

‘If I should give my fiddle,
They’ll think that I’ve gone mad;
For many a joyous day
My fiddle and I have had.”

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.
Then 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.
When Jill came in,
How she did grin
To see Jack’s paper palster;
Her mother, vexed,
Did whip her next,
For laughing at Jack’s disaster.

Print Jack & Jill and their Pets, a cute dog and cat

Now Jack did laugh,
And Jill did cry,
But her tears did soon abate;
Then Jill did say,
That they should play
At see-saw across the gate.

JACK JELF
Little Jack Jelf
Was put on the shelf
Because he could not spell “pie”;
When his aunt, Mrs. Grace,
Saw his sorrowful face,
She could not help saying, “Oh, fie!”

And since Master Jelf
Was put on the shelf
Because he could not spell “pie,”
Let him stand there so grim,
And no more about him,
For I wish him a very good-bye!

JACK JINGLE
Little Jack Jingle,
He used to live single;
But when he got tired of this kind of life,
He left off being single and lived with his wife.
Now what do you think of little Jack Jingle?
Before he was married he used to live single.

JACK SPRAT
Jack Sprat
Could eat no fat,
His wife could eat no lean;
And so,
Betwixt them both,
They licked the platter clean.

JENNY WREN
As little Jenny Wren
Was sitting by her shed.
She waggled with her tail,
And nodded with her head.
She waggled with her tail,
And nodded with her head,
As little Jenny Wren
Was sitting by the shed.

JERRY HALL
Jerry Hall, he was so small,
A rat could eat him, hat and all.

JOHN SMITH
Is John Smith within?
Yes, that he is.
Can he set a shoe?
Ay, marry, two.
Here a nail, there a nail,
Tick, tack, too.

JUST LIKE ME
“I went up one pair of stairs.”
“Just like me.”

“I went up two pairs of stairs.”
“Just like me.”

“I went into a room.”
“Just like me.”

“I looked out of a window.”
“Just like me.”

“And there I saw a monkey.”
“Just like me."
