Three children sliding on the ice
Nursery Rhyme lyrics, origins and history

Three children sliding on the ice,
Upon a summer's day;
It so fell out, they all fell in,
The rest they ran away.

Now, had these children been at home,
Or sliding on dry ground,
Ten thousand pounds to one penny
They had not all been drowned.

You parents that have children dear,
And eke you that have none,
If you would have them safe abroad,
Pray keep them safe at home
