The Wiggles DVD Time for another blog giveaway, and this time we’ve got something to get the wiggles out — or in, as the case may be: “Pop Go The Wiggles.” It’s the latest, hot-off-the-press, nursery rhyme-centric DVD from that ridiculously popular Aussie kid band, The Wiggles. The DVD includes some of the most popular ditties in the Mother Goose oeuvre – “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star,” for example – and some that were new … to us, anyway. “There Was a Princess”?? “Murray Had a Turtle”??

So here’s this week’s challenge. Click “comments” and tell us about your favorite, not-so-well-known nursery rhyme. We’ll draw a name next weekend (Karin was last week’s winner, by the way! Congrats, kiddo!) and ship off some wiggly fun.

[You can leave a response, or trackback from your own site.]

    Reminds me of “wiggles wobble but they don’t fall down” – not quite a nursery rhyme.

    Christmas is coming, the goose is getting fat
    Please put a penny in the old man’s hat
    If you haven’t got a penny, a ha’penny will do
    If you haven’t got a ha’penny, then God bless you!

    I always liked the one about the fat cat. It had some slow blue-sy action which was enjoyable as an eight year old:

    Oh, Del Gato was a cat.
    He was big and round and nice on fat.

    He would sit upon the fence,
    Meow meow meow,
    Waiting for a mouse to be found,
    Meow meow meow

    Oh, the life of Del Gato.

    Not strictly a nursery rhyme, but a rhyme which I’ve taught my five year old and which always tickled me:

    Ladles and Jellyspoons,
    I come before you to stand behind you
    and tell you something I know nothing about.

    Next Thursday, which is good Friday,
    There will be a ladies meeting
    For men only.

    Entrance is free, you can pay at the door.
    We’ll give you a seat so you can sit on the floor.


    Nonsense verse was always my favourite and my sons seem to like it too 😉

    Mary had a pretty bird,
    Feathers bright and yellow,
    Slender legs, upon my word
    He was a pretty fellow.

    The sweetest notes he always sung,
    Which much delighted Mary,
    And often where the cage was hung,
    She stood to hear Canary.

    I love the Horsey, Horsey one (being a horse girl at heart.)
    Horsey Horsey rhyme

    Horsey horsey don’t you stop
    Just let your feet go clippetty clop
    The tail goes swish and the wheels go round
    Giddy up, we’re homeward bound.

  7. Noreen Says:

    My girls love the wiggles

    The North wind doth blow
    and we shall have snow,
    and what will poor robin do then,
    poor thing.
    He’ll sit in a barn
    and keep himself warm
    and hide his head under his wing,
    poor thing.

    Higglety Pigglety Pop
    The dog has eaten the mop
    The pig’s in a hurry, the cat’s in a flurry
    Higglety Pigglety Pop!

  12. Denise Says:

    Wow, these rhymes are so cute. Here is one that my mother used to say…

    Sleep Tight, don’t let the bed bugs bite but if they do, pick a few and I’ll fry them for you. :)

  13. Christina Says:

    Three wise men of Gotham
    Went to sea in a bowl
    If the bowl had been stronger
    My song would be longer

    My favorite rhyme is one we always did at Halloween in my 4K class and the kids love it. We sang “The Itsy Bitsy Spider” with these words and I used a stuffed spider to do the motions.

    “The itsy bitsy spider crawled up on (child’s name) head.
    He crawled all around and he made himself a bed.
    He crawled on his back and he jumped on to the floor.
    And the itsy bitsy spider crawled right out the door.”

    The kids love this and my own children do too.

  15. Chad Says:

    I wish I could remember the old rhymes I was told, but I am still struggling with trying to remember the popular ones when trying to sing to my little ones right now. I change the characters to include my son and daughter, and even with ‘Ba Ba Black Sheep’ we have even changed some parts that has helped my son remember what street he lives on.
