Goosey, Goosey Gander

Leonard Leslie Brooke 1862 – 1940




  
  
Goosey, Goosey Gander.
  
  
Goosey, Goosey Gander,
Where shall I wander?
  
  
  
Upstairs, downstairs,
And in my lady's chamber.
  
  
  
There I met an old man
That would not say his prayers:
I took him by the left leg,
And threw him downstairs.
