PAIRS OR PEARS
Twelve pairs hanging high,
Twelve knights riding by,
Each knight took a pear,
And yet left a dozen there.

PANCAKE DAY
Great A, little a,
This is pancake day;
Toss the ball high,
Throw the ball low,
Those that come after
May sing heigh-ho!

PAT-A-CAKE
Pat-a-cake, pat-a-cake,
Baker’s man!
So I do, master,
As fast as I can.

Pat it, and prick it,
And mark it with T,
Put it in the oven
For Tommy and me.

PEASE PORRIDGE
Pease porridge hot,
Pease porridge cold,
Pease porridge in the pot,
Nine days old.
Some like it hot,
Some like it cold,
Some like it in the pot,
Nine days old

PETER, PETER PUMPKIN EATER

Peter, Peter, pumpkin-eater,
Had a wife and couldn't keep her;
He put her in a pumpkin shell,
And there he kept her very well.

Peter, Peter, pumpkin eater,
Had another, and didn't lover her;
Peter learned to read and spell,
And then he loved her very well.

PETER PIPER
Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers;
A peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked.
If Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers,
Where’s the peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked?


A PIG

As I went to Bonner,
I met a pig
Without a wig
Upon my word and honor.
 

PINS
See a pin and pick it up,
All the day you’ll have good luck.
See a pin and let it lay,
Bad luck you’ll have all the day.

THE PIPER AND HIS COW
There was a piper had a cow,
And he had naught to give her;
He pulled out his pipes and played her a tune,
And bade the cow consider.

The cow considered very well,
And gave the piper a penny,
And bade him play the other tune,
“Corn rigs are bonny.”

PIPPEN HILL
As I was going up Pippen Hill
Pippen Hill was dirty;
There I met a pretty Miss,
And she dropped me a curtsy.

Little Miss, pretty Miss,
Blessings light upon you;
If I had half-a-crown a day,
I’d spend it all upon you.

PLAY DAYS
How many days has my baby to play?
Saturday, Sunday, Monday,
Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday,
Saturday, Sunday, Monday.

A PLUM PUDDING
Flour of England, fruit of Spain,
Met together in a shower of rain;
Put in a bag tied round with a string;
If you’ll tell me this riddle,
I’ll give you a ring.

POLLY AND SUKEY
Polly, put the kettle on,
Polly, put the kettle on,
Polly, put the kettle on,
And let’s drink tea.
Sukey, take it off again,
Sukey, take it off again,
Sukey, take it off again,
They’re all gone away.

POOR OLD ROBINSON CRUSOE!
Poor old Robinson Crusoe!
Poor old Robinson Crusoe!
They made him a coat
Of an old Nanny goat.
I wonder why they should do so!
With a ring-a-ting-tang,
And a ring-a-ting-tang,
Poor old Robinson Crusoe!

PRETTY JOHN WATTS
Pretty John Watts,
We are troubled with rats,
Will you drive them out of the house?
We have mice, too, in plenty,
That feast in the pantry,
But let them stay
And nibble away,
What harm in a little brown mouse?

PUNCH AND JUDY
Punch and Judy
Fought for pie;
Punch gave Judy
A knock on the eye.
Says Punch to Judy,
"Will you have any more?"
Says Judy to Punch,
"My eye is too sore."


PUSSY-CAT AND QUEEN

“Pussy-cat, pussy-cat,
Where have you been?”
“I’ve been to London
To look at the Queen.”

“Pussy-cat, pussy-cat,
What did you there?”
I frightened a little mouse
Under the chair.”
 

PUSSY-CAT AND THE DUMPLINGS
Pussy-cat ate the dumplings, the dumplings,
Pussy-cat ate the dumplings.
Mamma stood by, and cried, “Oh, fie!
Why did you eat the dumplings?”

PUSSY-CAT BY THE FIRE
Pussy-cat sits by the fire;
How can she be fair?
In walks the little dog;
Says: “Pussy, are you there?
How do you do, Mistress Pussy?
Mistress Pussy, how d’ye do?”
“I thank you kindly, little dog,
I fare as well as you!”

PUSSY-CAT MEW
Pussy-cat Mew jumped over a coal,
And in her best petticoat burnt a great hole.
Poor Pussy’s weeping, she’ll have no more milk
Until her best petticoat’s mended with silk.
