London Bridge: London Bridge In 1014 the London Bridge was demolished by King Olaf and his Norsemen. King Olaf defeated the Romans in the Battle of London Bridge. The London Bridge was ruined and the followers of Kind Olaf (Norsemen) wrote the song to boast about their victory. Ring a Ring O’Roses: Ring a Ring O’Roses Ring a ring o’roses Pocket full of Posies A-tishoo a-tishoo We all Fall Down Ring a Ring O’Roses: Ring a Ring O’Roses This rhyme originates from the great plague. Rosie refers to the color that the plague turned the cheeks. Posies were a bunch of herbs that were suppose to ward of the plague. A-tishoo represented the sick people sneezing. They all fall down represented when the sick would die. Hot Cross Buns: Hot Cross Buns Hot-cross buns! Hot-cross buns!One a penny, two a penny,Hot-cross buns!If you have no daughters,Give them to your sons,One a penny, two a penny,Hot-cross buns!But if you have none of these little elves,Then you may eat them all yourselves. Hot Cross Buns: Hot Cross Buns This song originates around the Christian holiday Good Friday. This song was sung on Good Friday when these sacred, spicy buns were sold and eaten. This custom was introduced by the Romans. Sing a Song of Sixpence: Sing a Song of Sixpence Sing a song of sixpence,A pocket full of rye;Four and twenty blackbirdsBaked in a pie.When the pie was openedThe birds began to sing;Was not that a dainty dishTo set before the King?The King was in his counting houseCounting out his money;The Queen was in the parlourEating bread and honey.The maid was in the gardenHanging out the clothes;There came a little blackbird;And pecked off her nose. Sing a Song of Sixpence: Sing a Song of Sixpence Based on a true story. Pocket full of rye is regarding that they would feed the birds with rye. Black birds and other small birds were considered a delicacy! The jester suggested to the chef to prepare a pie with live black birds inside to amuse the king. Instead of amusing the king, the black birds flew out and one came towards the king and bit his nose. Baa Baa Black Sheep: Baa Baa Black Sheep Baa, baa, black sheep,Have you any wool?Yes sir, yes sir,Three bags full;One for the master,And one for the dame,And one for the little boyWho lives down the lane. Baa Baa Black Sheep: Baa Baa Black Sheep This song was written and based around an event in history. King Richard III added a tax to exported wool. When the English ports received the wool they would have to pay a tax on it. Yankee Doodle: Yankee Doodle Yankee Doodle went to town,Riding on a pony;He stuck a feather in his capAnd called it macaroni. Yankee Doodle: Yankee Doodle The words Yankee Doodle actually mean a fool or slow witted person. Yankee Doodle was sung by British troops during the revolutionary war. They were making fun of the Americans. Hey Diddle Diddle: Hey Diddle Diddle Hey, diddle, diddle,The cat and the fiddle,The cow jumped over the moon.The little dog laughedTo see such sport,And the dish ran away with the spoon. Hey Diddle Diddle: Hey Diddle Diddle This rhyme dates back to 1765. Every line in the song is actually the name of a pub that was found in Great Britain during this time. Each one of these places were within 6 miles of each other. Slide 16: Next time you go to sing a nursery song think about what you are REALLY singing about! Sources: Sources
