Johnny Crow
Would dig and sow

 

Till he made
a little Garden Grow.

 

 


 

 


 

In Johnny Crow's Garden.

 

 

 

And the Rat
Wore a Feather in his Hat

 

 

 

But the Bear
Had nothing to wear

In Johnny Crow's Garden.

 

 

 

So the Ape

 

 

Took his Measure with a Tape


 

In Johnny Crow's Garden.

 

 

 

 

 

Then the Crane

Was caught in the Rain

In Johnny Crow's Garden.


 

 

 

And the Beaver

Was afraid he had a Fever

 

 

But Dr. Goat

Said:


 

"Naaah.  It's nothing but his Throat!"

In Johnny Crow's Garden.

 

 

 

 

 

 

And the Pig
Danced a Jig

In Johnny Crow's Garden.

 

 

 

Then the Stork
Gave a Philosophic Talk

Till the Hippopotami
Said: "Ask no further 'What am I?'"

While the Elephant
Said something quite irrelevant

In Johnny Crow's Garden.

 

 

 

 

 

And the Goose--
Well,

the Goose was a Goose


 

In Johnny Crow's Garden.

 

 

 

 

 

And the Mouse

Built himself a little House

 

 

 

 

 

Where the Cat

Sat down beside the Mat

In Johnny Crow's Garden.

 

 

 

And the Whale

Told a long
Ocean Tale


 

In Johnny Crow's Garden.

 

 

 

 

 

And the Owl
Was a funny old Fowl

 

 

And the Fox

Put them all in the Stocks


 

In Johnny Crow's Garden.

 

 

 

But Johnny Crow
He let them go

And they sat down
to their dinner
All in a row

In Johnny Crow's Garden.

 

 

Proud Winners
of The Big Door Prize

Were The Little Penguins
That Said Sad "GOOD-BYES!"

 

 

The End

 

The Government Insists
We tell you this,

Our purpose: Let the past, the future and the wonder of the day around you be schoolmaster, guardian and companion.  Let God be his Father, let her believe in angels and dance with fairies, let them face icy storms of dark cloud and storms of hot prejudice.  Let your child live in wonder and lift glad voice in solemn awe, for this brief second of time shall never tick the tock again.  Contact us if any of these links fail you.

The GingerBread Man movie, by Lin Stone is now posted for your children to watch.  It is supposed to start immediately -- so you'll know when it is ready to play.
