Little Miss Muffet Lyrics

Little Miss Muffet sat on a tuffet,
eating her curds and whey.
There came a big spider,
who sat down beside her
and frightened Miss Muffet away!
"Miss Muffet, You don 't have to be frightened of a spider!"

So the next day

Little Miss Muffet sat on a tuffet,
eating her curds and whey.
There came a big spider
who sat down beside her
and became her good friend that day!
