GUEST,Nancy Children's rhymes and playground songs (49) RE: Children's rhymes and playground songs 29 Mar 01


Renee...I remember that as The Farmer in the Dell (The Farmer in the Dell x 2, hi ho the derry-o, the farmer in the dell...The farmer takes a wife...the wife takes a child....the child takes a dog....is that the one?) As I recall it involved stringing out all the chosen ones behind the farmer and his wife, then a climax, like tug of war.....

What about Pop goes the Weasel....a weaver told me it was basically a weaving song... it was a circle game but I can't remember the action....

Seems to me we played a version of Buck,buck called One Potato...action pretty much the same.

Clancy Bros had a medley on one of their old albums...(It ISN"T because yer dirty, it ISNT because yer clean, Its because you've got the WHOOPing cough and eat margerine...)

This thread reminds me of research I did a long time ago on hopscotch...seems they have found hopscotch squares from early Egyptian times....
