Nursery Rhymes: Room 12 style

We have been using old-fashioned nursery rhymes and changing them as we go along. We break the pattern. Here are 3 examples Room 12 has created so far...

I'm a little teapot
Short and stout.
Here is my handle;
Here is my spout.
When I get all steamed up,
I hear you shout because 
I burned your hand.
Don't you dare mess with me!
~Mr. Morantte

Humpty Dumpty sat on a brick wall,
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
The guards tried to put him together.
Instead they ate him like eggs and ham.

Hey diddle diddle, the cat and the fiddle,
The cow jumped over the moon.
What I don't get is that
did the cow jump for the cat?
Did the cow jump over the moon because
the moon wanted to see the cow?
Okay, back to the story...
The little dog laughed to see such fun
and the dish ran away with the spoon.
Then they ran away and
named Jack
found the dish and the spoon.
So, Jack used the dish and spoon for lunch.
