Sally sells seashells by the seashore.

I found this one all well, which is more what I recall for this ryme.

She sells sea shells by the sea shore.
The shells she sells are surely seashells.
So if she sells shells on the seashore,
I’m sure she sells seashore shells.

Peter Piper picked a peck
Of pickled peppers;
A peck of pickled peppers
Peter Piper Picked

If Peter Piper picked a peck
Of Pickled peppers,
Where’s the peck of pickled peppers
Peter Piper Picked?

I find myself saying this one more often then I expect…

Fuzzy Wuzzy was a bear.
Fuzzy Wuzzy had no hair.
Fuzzy Wuzzy wasn’t very fuzzy, was he?

It turns out the Fuzzy Wuzzy has it origins in a copyrighted song! I had no idea. According to Wikipedia, “‘Fuzzy Wuzzy’ is a song written in 1944 by Al Hoffman, Milton Drake and Jerry Livingston. Its chorus is a well-known rhyme.” So there you go. I should try and find a copy of it so we can all hear.
