You Shall Have an Apple

You shall have an apple,
YOU shall have a plum,
You shall have a rattle,
When papa comes home.
 
 

Here's the version that can be found in The Nursery Rhyme Book, edited by Andrew Lang and illustrated by L. Leslie Brooke (1897):

You shall have an apple,
You shall have a plum,
You shall have a rattle-basket,
When your dad comes home.

This rhyme can be found in The Real Mother Goose (1916), illustrated by Blanche Fisher Wright.
