Can You Believe it!

I downloaded some Nursery Rhymes recently and I was rather intrigued by a lot of them.
A lot of them are rather harmful, many are violent.  I suppose I had never really thought about that before until I started reading what I expect are the original versions.  These are free on the Internet to download. No Copyright.


The Old Women Who Lived in a Shoe.

I found out why 'The Old Women Who Lived in a Shoe' was living in a shoe..as I did with many of these Nursery Rhymes...it's no wonder many of these have been shortened to a 'nice version' in the Rhymes that I knew.
However, as an adult it good to read the full version of many of these Rhymes/Tales/Stories.
