Nursery Rhymes Song

Mummy blogs (Part 2)

I realised I’m not alone in remembering Fairy Tales!

Well, I really like music, and singing and reciting nursery rhymes are always fun for kids. They love the tunes and they love the repetition in rhyming words.

BUT, I can’t remember exact words! I usually remember the 1st few lines and after that it is Lah lah lah lah lah…

Furthermore, sometimes the rhymes just don’t make any sense at all!

I am just so bad at it! Do u guys have similar problems?!?

For Example,

1. 3 Blind Mice

We usually remember this part:

3 Blind Mice, 3 Blind Mice, see how they run, see how they run,

But after that, It is really very patchy…

They lah lah lah lah lah lah lah lah, lah lah lah lah lah lah lah lah

And we end with:

3 Blind Mice…


2. Yankee Doodle

Yankee Doodle went to town, to fetch a pail of water (opps…isn’t that Jack and Jill)


3. I’m a little teapot


I’m a little teapot, short and stout. Here is my handle, here is my sprout.

When the lah lah lah lah (Mummy can’t remember), pour me out, tip me over, and pour me out.

4. This Old Man

This old man, he plays one (?!?!), he plays knick knack on my thumb, lah lah lah lah lah lah (I remember can’t remember a lot of this rhyme)… paddy whack, this old man came rolling home


Oh my… I really need to brush up and read more AND commit them to memory.

And most importantly, I’ve got to pray hard the kids don’t ask me what these rhymes mean! Some obviously have none!

I’ll leave you with video of This Old Man: (the lyrics were an eye-opener!)
