The Rhymin’ Game


If it sounds the same, that’s the rhymin’ game
The rhymin’ game, The rhymin’ game
If it sounds the same, that’s the rhymin’ game


Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall
All the king’s horses and all the king’s men
Couldn’t put Humpty together again


Wall, fall, men, again
If it sounds the same, that’s the rhymin’ game
The rhymin’ game, The rhymin’ game
If it sounds the same, that’s the rhymin’ game


Jack Sprat could eat no fat
His wife could eat no lean
And so between the two of them
They licked the platter clean


Sprat, fat, lean, clean
If it sounds the same, that’s the rhymin’ game
The rhymin’ game, The rhymin’ game
If it sounds the same, that’s the rhymin’ game


Hey diddle diddle the cat and the fiddle
The cow jumped over the moon
The little dog laughed to see such a sight
And the dish ran away with the spoon


Diddle, fiddle, moon, spoon
If it sounds the same, that’s the rhymin’ game
The rhymin’ game, The rhymin’ game
If it sounds the same, that’s the rhymin’ game


Under a web, beside a gate
The spider hangs, his legs are eight
Above him flies the buzzy bee
Six black and furry legs has she


A tabby cat goes leapin’ past
Her four legs carry her so fast
I’ve only two, now that isn’t many
But Mister worm, man, he hasn’t any


Gate, eight, bee, she
Past, fast, many, any
If it sounds the same, that’s the rhymin’ game
The rhymin’ game, The rhymin’ game
If it sounds the same, that’s the rhymin’ game


If it sounds the same, that’s the rhymin’ game
The rhymin’ game, The rhymin’ game
If it sounds the same, that’s the rhymin’ game
