Aren't nursery rhymes sweet?

So I'm reading a book of Mother Goose nursery rhymes to JJ when I come across this:

Goosey Goosey Gander

Goosey Goosey Gander where shall I wander,
Upstairs, downstairs and in my lady's chamber
There I met an old man who wouldn't say his prayers,
I took him by the left leg and threw him down the stairs.

Apparently there was no separation of church and state where poor "Goosey Goosey Gander" lived...

LOL. Well that's a good lesson to teach your kids! Say your prayers... or else!

What I'm getting the laugh at is the old man who wasn't his master, in his lady's chamber, lol.

I have looked through some of those really old Mother Goose nursery rhymes. I'm pretty sure that she was one sick and twisted lady. I bet she would be on some major mood stabilizers in present day.
Do you think she actually spent a lot of time with children? Whose? What ever became of them?
