Fireman Fred
Fireman Fred is a really fine fellow
Oh Fireman Fred
Fireman Fred is dressed in yellow
Oh Fireman Fred
He goes up and he goes down
Puts the fire out of town
Fireman Fred is a really fine fellow
Oh, Fireman Fred.

Miss Polly
Miss Polly had a dolly who was sick, sick, sick
So she called for the Doctor to come quick, quick, quick
The Doctor came with his bag and his hat
And he knocked on the door with a rat, tat, tat
He looked at the dolly and he shook his head
And he said, "Miss Polly put her straight to bed"
He wrote on a paper for a pill, pill, pill
I'll be back in the morning with my bill, bill, bill.
