Great link to the cat's cradle, Mary! I'm afraid that neither "siver spoon" nor "the man in the moon" is in the nursery rhyme, though. Here's "Hey Diddle Diddle" (I was wrong about the fork, it was the dish):

Hey diddle diddle, the cat and the fiddle,
The cow jumped over the moon;
The little dog laughed to see such sport,
And the dish ran away with the spoon.
