Thread Name: Nursery Rhyme - The Dish Ran Away With the Spoon..
Subject: RE: Nursery Rhyme - The Dish Ran Away With the Spoon..
The "to see such sport" version is in Walter Crane, Mother Goose's nursery rhymes : a collection of alphabets, rhymes, tales, and jingles (1877) (p. 175, with an illustration):
Hey, diddle, diddle, the cat and the fiddle
The cow jumped over the moon;
The little dog laughed to see such sport,
And the dish ran after the spoon.
