  • Act I Prologue of Romeo & Juliet
    Two households, both alike in dignity,     In fair Verona, where we lay our scene,     From ancient grudge break to new mutiny,     Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean.     From forth the fatal loins of these two foes     A pair of star-cross'd lovers take their life;     Whole misadventured piteous overthrows     Do with their death bury their parents' strife.     The fearful passage of their death-mark'd love,     And the continuance of their parents' rage,     Which, but their children's end, nought could remove,     Is now the two hours' traffic of our stage;     The which if you with patient ears attend,     What here shall miss, our toil shall strive to mend.

    There was an old lady who swallowed a flyI don't know why she swallowed a fly - perhaps she'll die!
    There was an old lady who swallowed a spider,That wriggled and wiggled and tiggled inside her;
    She swallowed the spider to catch the fly;I don't know why she swallowed a fly - Perhaps she'll die! 
    There was an old lady who swallowed a bird;How absurd to swallow a bird.
