Jack and Jill

Category Rhymes and Songs

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 

Up Jack got, and home did trot, 
As fast as he could caper; 
To old Dame Dob, who patched his nob 
With vinegar and brown paper. 

Alternative Lyrics:

Up Jack got and home did trot, 
As fast as he could caper;
And went to bed and bound his head
With vinegar and brown paper

Then Jill came in, and she did grin,
To see Jack's paper plaster;
Her mother whipt her, across her knee,
For laughing at Jack's disaster

Who ne'er did any harm,
But played with the mice in his father's barn.
