Nursery Rhymes revised.

Nursery Rhymes revised.

When you have a baby/kid in your home, your phone will definitely have an app for Nursery Rhymes. I’m sure most of you have by hearted those rhymes by now. Apart from teaching our kids these rhymes, we also use them as a weapon to gain their attention. Agree with me?

Did you know that the nursery rhymes that we have learnt have come up with a new version? When I was playing the videos of these rhymes for my son, I have noticed changes in the lyrics for a few of them and an extension was given to a few other rhymes. Talking about the extension to the rhymes, I would like to appreciate Chu Chu Tv videos for the lyrics.

I thought there is a need to share them with you. Here are those rhymes for you.

Chubby Cheeks

Older Version:

Chubby cheeks, dimple chin
Rosy lips, teeth within
Curly hair, very fair
Eyes are blue – lovely too.
Teachers pet, is that you?
Yes, Yes, Yes!

New Version:

Chubby cheeks, dimple chin
Smiling lips, teeth within
Curly hair, flows in air
Eyes are cute – lovely too.
Teachers pet, is that you?
Yes, Yes, Yes!

Rock A Bye, Baby!!!

Older Version:

Rock a bye baby, on the tree top,
When the wind blows the cradle will rock.
When the bough breaks the cradle will fall,
And down will come baby, cradle and all.

New Version:

Rock a bye baby, on the tree top,
When the wind blows the cradle will rock.
When the bough breaks the cradle will fall,
And mamma will catch you, cradle and all.

Humpty Dumpty Sat on a Wall

Older Version:

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall;
All the king’s horses and all the king’s men,
Couldn’t put Humpty together again.

New Version (with extension):

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall;
All the king’s horses and all the king’s men,
Couldn’t put Humpty together again.

Humpty Dumpty learned from the fall,
Humpty Dumpty hated the wall;
All the king’s men and all the children,
Were not allowed to climb the wall again.

Jack and Jill

Older Version:

Jack and Jill went up the hill
To fetch a pail of water.
Jack fell down and broke his crown,
And Jill came tumbling after.

Up Jack got, and home did trot,
As fast as he could caper,
He went to bed to mend his head,
With vinegar and brown paper.

New Version (with extension):

Jack and Jill went up the hill
To fetch a pail of water.
Jack fell down and broke his crown,
And Jill came tumbling after.

Where there is a will, there is a way,
You got to walk all the way.
Try and try, with your head high,
You will succeed faster.

Jack and Jill, with a strong will,
went again up the hill,
both were firm, not to fall,
Brought down the pail of water.

If you come across any such new versions, do let us know.

Happy Teaching!!
