Mary had a little lamb, and tied it to the heater
Every time it turned around it burned its little
peter peter pumpkin-eater had a wife and couldn't keep her, etc.

Push the button, turn the crank,
Out comes a German army tank.
Push the button, pull the chain
Out comes a chocolate choo-choo train!

(said faster and faster):
I smart fella; I fella smart.

Tra-la-la boom-dee-ay, I'll scare your pants away,
And while you're standing there, I'll take your underwear.

(to the tune of the Battle Hymn of the Republic)"
I wear my pink pajamas in the summer when it's hot.
I wear my pink pajamas in the winter when it's not.
And sometimes in the springtime, and sometimes in the fall,
I crawl between the sheets with nothing on at all!.

This isn't nasty, but I love it. I think it's a Shel Silverstein-ism:
Hickory dickory dock, three mice ran up the clock.
The clock struck one, and the other two escaped with minor injuries.
