The History Lesson

THERE was a monkey climbed up a tree,
When he fell down, then down full he.
 
There was a crow sat on a stone,
When he was gone, then there was none.
 
There was an old wife did eat an apple,        5
When she had eat two, she had eat a couple.
 
There was a horse going to the mill,
When he went on, he stood not still.
 
There was a butcher cut his thumb,
When it did bleed, then blood did come.        10
 
There was a lackey ran a race,
When he ran fast, he ran apace.
 
There was a cobbler clouting shoon,
When they were mended, they were done.
 
There was a chandler making candle,        15
When he them strip, he did them handle.
 
There was a navy went into Spain,
When it returned, it came again.
