Subject: RE: Nursery Rhyme - The Dish Ran Away With the Spoon..
Roughly 50 years ago I came upun a nursery rhyme book that gave 24 verses to this populair ditty.
I seem to recall that each line of the present vesion came from a different couplet.
I can find no reference to the longer work. Can anyone help ? thanks in advance.....
