Little Miss Muffet song lyrics

Little Miss Muffet Sat on a tuffet, Eating her curds and whey; Along came a spider Who sat down beside her And frightened Miss Muffet away.

Little Miss Muffet, Sat on a Tuffet, Eating her Bread and Jam, Along came a Spider, While she was Drinking her Cider, And she ran away and her shoes fell off!
