Ring Around the Rosie

RATR.jpg


Ring around the rosy,
A pocketful of posies.
Ashes, ashes,
We all fall down.
The King has sent his daughter,
To fetch a pail of water.
Ashes, ashes,
We all fall down.
The bird is on the steeple,
High above the people,
Ashes, ashes,
We all fall down.
The wedding bells are ringing,
The boys and girls are singing.
Ashes, ashes,
We all fall down.

Where are the bees?
Hiding away where
Nobody sees.
They are coming out now
They are all alive
