Ring around the roses


Lyrics

Ring around the roses
A pocket full of posies
Ashes, Ashes
All stand still.
(Children hold still)

The King has sent his daughter
To fetch a pail of water
(Children hold hands and dance around in a circle)
Ashes, Ashes
All fall down.
(Children fall to the floor)

The bird upon the steeple
Sits high above the people
(Children hold hands and dance around in a circle)
Ashes, Ashes
All kneel down.
(Children kneel)

The wedding bells are ringing
The boys and girls are singing
(Children hold hands and dance around in a circle)
Ashes, Ashes,
All fall down.
