Just for fun

Whistle Daughter

"Whistle, daughter, whistle;
Whistle, daughter, dear."
"I cannot whistle, Mummy,
I cannot whistle clear."
"Whistle, daughter, whistle;
Whistle for a pound."
"I cannot whistle, Mummy,
I cannot make a sound."

From Holly Hobbie's Nursery Rhymes 1977

There are some strange ones in there. I can't whistle to save my life. Nathan is very good at whistling and Boo loves it. I remember my grandmother trying to teach, but I was hopeless. Paulina can whistle super loud!

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 home did trot,
As fast as he could caper;
They put him to bed,
And plastered his head,
With vinegar and brown paper.

Also from the same book. Also strange.
