Thread Name: Nursery Rhyme - The Dish Ran Away With the Spoon..
Subject: RE: Nursery Rhyme - The Dish Ran Away With the Spoon..
From James Orchard Halliwell, ed., The Nursery Rhymes of England, 4th ed. (London: John Russell Smith, 1846, p. 140):
Hey! diddle diddle,
The cat and the fiddle,
The cow jumped over the moon;
The little dog laugh'd
To see such craft,
While the dish ran after the spoon.
