Mother Goose had a house, 

'Twas built in a wood, 

Where an owl at the door 

For sentinel stood. 

She had a son, Jack, 

A plain-looking lad, 

He was not very good,

Nor yet very bad. 

She sent him to market,

A live goose he bought; 

See, Mother, says he, 

I have not been for nought. 

Jack's goose and her gander 

Grew very fond; 

They'd both eat together, 

Or swim in the pond. 

Jack found one fine morning, 

As I have been told, 

His goose had laid him 

An egg of pure gold. 

Jack ran to his mother 

The news for to tell, 

She called him a good boy 

And said it was well.
