Come, Butter, Come
Nursery Charm

Come, butter, come;
Come, butter, come,
Peter stands at the gate
Waiting for his buttered cake;
Come, butter, come.

Notes

Percy B. Green called this an "Essex Charm for a Churn, 1650 A.D." in his book "A History of Nursery Rhymes" (published in 1899).

*****

Here's another version of this rhyme from Cole's Funny Picture Book No. 1, written and compiled by Edward William Cole (1st Published in 1879 in Melbourne, Australia):

Churn, Butter, Churn!

Churn, butter, churn! come, butter, come!
Peter stands at the gate,
Waiting for a butter cake;
Come, butter, come!
