Diddlety, Diddlety, Dumpty - English Children's Songs - England - Mama Lisa's World: Children's Songs and Rhymes from Around the World, Intro Image


Diddlety, diddlety, dumpty,
The cat ran up the plum tree,
Give her a plum, and down she'll come,
Diddlety, diddlety, dumpty.

Notes

Here's another version from The Nursery Rhyme Book, edited by Andrew Lang and illustrated by L. Leslie Brooke (1897):

DIDDLEDY, diddledy, dumpty;
The cat ran up the plum-tree.
I'll lay you a crown
I'll fetch you down;
So diddledy, diddledy, dumpty.

Thanks and Acknowledgements

The illustration comes from Kate Greenaway's Mother Goose (1881).
