Kids Poems » THE Fiddler

THE fiddler played upon his fiddle

All through that leafy June,

He always played hey-diddle-diddle,

And played it out of tune.

And down the hill the children came,

And down the valley too :

I never heard the fiddler's name,

So cannot tell it you.

Hey-diddle-diddle, diddle-diddle-dee.

On on they came, and when they heard

That tune so swift and sweet,

They did not say a single word,

But shuffled with their feet.

Then round they went, and round and round,

All to that cracked old fiddle,

And still was heard the magic sound,

Hey-diddle-diddle-didd,

Hey-diddle-diddle, diddle-diddle-dee.
