Nursery Rhymes

Filed under:

We love saying and singing nursery songs and rhymes  in all our Peapodbaby classes. So we’ve decided to add a new one every month. Not seeing your favourite or perhaps from a different country – do you have any  songs or nursery rhyme you’d like to share from your own childhood?  If so please send us an email mailto:enquiries@peapodbaby.scotwith the words and we can share it with all our Peapod mums and dads.


January: Grand Old Duke of York

Oh the grand old Duke of York, he had ten thousand men

He marched them up to the top of the hill, and he marched them down again.

And when they were up they were up, and when they were down they were down

And when they were only half way up, they were neither up nor down.

February: Hot cross buns

Hot cross buns, Hot cross buns

One a penny, two a penny, hot cross buns

If you have no daughters then give them to your sons

One a penny, two a penny, hot cross buns

March: Hickory Dickory Doc

Hickory dickory doc, the mouse ran up the clock

The clock struck one, the mouse ran down

Hickory dickory doc

April: Five little peas

Five little peas in a peapod pressed, one grew two grew and so did all the rest

They grew and grew and did not stop, until one day, the pod went POP!

May: Little Miss Muffet

Little miss muffet sat on her tuffet, eating her curds and whey

Along came a spider, who sat down beside her

And frightened miss muffet away.

June:Ring a Roses

Ring a ring of roses, a pocket full of posies

a tissue, a tissue, we all fall down

The cows are in the meadow eating buttercups

A tissue, a tissue we all jump up

July:See Saw

See saw Margery daw Jonny will have a new master

he shall earn but a penny a day because he cant go any faster

August: Jelly on a plate

Jelly on a plate, jelly on a plate

wibble wobble, wibble wobble

jelly on a plate

September: There was a Little Girl

There was a little girl who had a little curl

right in the middle of her forehead

and when she was good, she was very very good

and when she was bad she was horrid.

October-  jack be nimble

jack be nimble

jack be quick

jack jump over the candlestick

November- To market

to market to market to buy a fat pig

home again, Home again jiggety jig

December-Mary Mary 

Mary Mary quite contrary how does your garden grow?

with silver bells and cockle shells and pretty maids all in a row.
