Ring Around the Rosie

Album: Children's Songs (1881)
  • Ring around the rosie
    Pocket full of posies
    Ashes ashes
    We all fall down
    The cows are in the meadow
    Eating buttercups
    Thunder lightning
    We all jump up

    Alternate Version:
    Ring around the rosies
    Pocket full of posies
    Ashes ashes
    We all fall down
    The goats are in the meadow
    Eating buttercups
    Ashes ashes
    We all jump up

    Expanded version:
    Ring around the rosie
    A pocket full of posies
    Ashes ashes
    We all fall down

    Skip around the rosie
