Peter Pumpkin 
Mother Goose Nursery Rhyme, 1833

 

Peter Pumpkin

 

Peter, Peter, pumpkin eater, 
Had a wife and couldn't keep her; 
He put her in a pumpkin shell, 
And then he kept her very well. 
Peter, Peter, pumpkin eater, 
Had another and didn't love her; 
Peter learnt to read and spell, 
And then he loved her very well.
