MOTHER STORIES




They that wash on Monday
 Have all the week to dry;
They that wash on Tuesday
 Are not so much awry;
They that wash on Wednesday
 Are not so much to blame;
They that wash on Thursday,
 Wash for very shame;
They that wash on Friday,
 Must only wash in need;
And they that wash on Saturday,
 Are lazy folks indeed.




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