BY
Fleming H. Revell Company PREFACE
There are probably more nursery rhymes in
China than can be found in England and
America. We have in our possession more than six
hundred, collected, for the most part, in two out of
the eighteen provinces, and we have no reason to
believe that we have succeeded in getting any large
proportion of what those two provinces contain.
In most of the rhymes there are features common
to those of our own "Mother Goose," among which
are those referring (i) to insects, (2) animals, (3)
birds, (4) persons, (5) children, (6) food, (7) parts
of the body, (8) actions, such as patting, grabbing,
tickling, etc., (9) professions, trades and business.
We have tried to reproduce the meaning of the
original as nearly as possible; this has not
always been an easy task. Let it be understood
that these rhymes make no pretentions to literary
merit, nor has the translator made any attempt at
regularity in the meter, because neither the original
nor our own "Mother Goose" is regular. Our
desire has been to make a translation which is fairly
true to the original, and which will please English-
speaking children. The child, not the critic, has
always been kept in view.
Attention is called to the affection manifested in such rhymes as "Sweeter than Sugar," "Sweet
Pill," "Little Fat Boy," and "Baby is Sleeping." There is no language in the world, we
venture to believe, which contains children's songs
expressive of more keen and tender affection than
those we have mentioned. This fact, more than any
other, has stimulated us in the preparation of these
rhymes. They have been prepared with the hope
that they will present a new phase of Chinese home
life, and lead the children of the West to have
some measure of sympathy and affection for the
children of the East.
The compilation was much facilitated by the
work done by Baron Vitali, of the Italian Legation
in Peking; Rev. Arthur H. Smith, author of
"Chinese Characteristics;" Miss Mabel Whiting, of
Peking; Miss Mitchell, of Chinkiang; Mrs.
McClure, of Honan; Miss Chalfant, of Shantung;
Mr. Chao Tsz-chi, Chinese Consul at New York;
Mr. Yamamoto, of Peking, and Rev. Chauncy
Goodrich, of T'ung Chou, while the entire work
is due to the fact that our attention was called by
Mrs. C. H. Fenn, of Peking, to her old nurse
repeating these  rhymes to her little boy.
The illustrations have all been prepared by the
translator specially for this work.

HE small-footed girl
With the sweet little smile,
She loves to eat sugar
And sweets all the while.
Her money's all gone
And because she can't buy,
She  holds  her  small  feet
While she sits down to cry. N  the  top  of a  mountain
A hemp stock was growing,
And up it a cricket was climbing.

He makes people die of joy!
What a fine little fellow is this fat boy

Now whose is this loving little boy?
24 Do you want to buy a beauty ?
Do you want to buy a beauty ?
If you buy him he will watch your house,
And do it as his duty.
And no matter as to servants,
You may have them or may not,
But you'll never need to lock your door
Or give your house a thought.

27 MILKY   WAY
HEN  e're the Milky Way you spy
Diagonal  across  the  sky,
The  egg-plant you  may  safely  eat,
And all your  friends to   melons treat.
But when divided toward the west,
You'll need your trousers and your vest;
When like a horn you see it float,
You'll need your trousers and your coat.

GO   TO   BED
ITTLE  baby,  go  to  bed,
We'll put a hoop around your
head,
And with the oil we get thereby,
Our little bean-cake we will fry.
And when we've fried our bean-cake
brown,
We'll see the king go into town,
An  iron  cap  upon  his  head;
Now - you - must - surely - go - to - bed.

THE
NERVOUS

NERVOUS  disposition

To hurry to a fair one day,
He rose at early morn;
Put on his wife's green trousers
And started to the sale,
A  riding on  a donkey—
His face turned toward its tail.

ITTLE snail, little snail,
With your hard, stony bed,
First stick out your horns,
Then stick out your head.

Have brought you some food,
Fried liver and mutton,
Now isn't that good?
•Vr.

And now, little snail,
Just as sure as I say
You must eat it at once,
Or I'll take it away.
Oh where is the little snail gone, I
pray  tell ?
He has drawn himself up, head and
horns, in his shell.

WHAT  THE  OLD  COW SAID
SAD old cow to herself once said,
While the north wind whistled
through her shed:
"To head a drum they will take my skin,
And they'll file my bones for a big hair-

The scraps of bone  they will make into
dice,
And sell them off at a very low price;

And my  flesh  they'll  put in  a big soup

You may eat meat three times a day,
And I'll eat the parts that you throw

MIXED
UST  outside   my   door,  I  heard
someone say,
A man bit a dog in a dangerous way;
Such a  message  I  n'er for  a  moment
could stand,
So I took up the door  and  I   opened
my hand,
I  snatched  up   the   dog   I  should  say
double-quick
And threw him  with  all  of my  force
at a brick;
The  brick—I'm   afraid   you   will   not
understand—
I found in a moment had bitten my hand;
I mounted a chair,  on a horse  I was
borne,
I blew on a drum, and I beat on a horn.

PRESCRIPTION
PURSE, a purse, for better or
worse.
Indeed, would you know it, I've married a purse.
My  wife's   little   daughter   once   fell
very
ill
And we called for a doctor to give her
a pill;
68 He wrote a prescription which now we
will give her,
In which he has ordered a mosquito's
liver,
And then in  addition  the  heart of a
flea,
And half pound of fly wings to make
her some tea.

For good things to eat.

74 THE  BALD OLD WOMAN
N the top ofthe mount,
By the road, on a stone—
Or a big pile of bricks—
Sat a bald-headed crone.
On her head were three hairs,
Which you'll reckon were thin,
In which she was trying
To  wear  a jade  pin.
She  put it in  once,
But  once  it  fell out;
She  put it in  twice,
But  twice  it  fell  out.
But  the  old  woman  said,
"I   know  what  I'm  about,
I'll  not put it in
And it cannot fall out."

H3 BALD   HEAD   LEE
HERE once was a bald-head,
his name it was Lee,
No  one  ever  burned
so  much incense  as he;
Now,  people  burn  incense
to  get  them   an  heir,
But baldy burned incense
to  get  him  some  hair.
When he found in three days
all his  hair had  returned,
He  the  god  gave  a  coat
and more incense he burned;
Jim
114 When he found in three days
all his hair had dropped out,
He upset  the god
and he  kicked him about.
Then the god became angry
and  took  up  a  sword,
And  made  into  dippers
that  bald-headed gourd.

at his heels,
To bite a bad  monkey  whenever he
steals.
A half of a brick lay   there   on the
road,
It   upset   the   boy   and   he   spilt   out
his   load,

Sjr^^ N the top of a mount-
)vg^ ain
There stands a pig-stye
And the fighting of parents
Has made the child cry.
Baby,  baby,
Don't you  cry,
Wait,  and  I'll whip
The old man by-and-by.
137 THE  CAMEL-BACK  BRIDGE
F you chance to be crossing
The  camel-back  bridge,
Each  step  leads  you  up
Till you come to the ridge.
138 The  lantern-grass  floats
On  the pond like a sail,
The  silver-fish  bites
At the gold-fish's tail.
The  big-bellied frog
Sitting there on the rock,
Keeps  constantly  calling
Wa'rh wa,  wa'rh wa.
