????? Miss Susie had a baby She named him Tiny Tim She put him in the bathtub To see if he could swim

He drank up all the water He ate up all the soap He tried to eat the bathtub But it wouldn't go down his throat

Miss Susie called the doctor
The doctor called the nurse
The nurse called the lady With the alligator purse

"Measles" said the doctor
"Mumps" said the nurse
"I don't know" said the lady With the alligator purse!

mariaps Miss Mary Mack ,Mack, Mack
All dressed in black, black, black
With silver buttons, buttons, buttons
All down her back, back, back.

She asked her mother, mother, mother
For 50 cents, cents, cents
To see the elephants, elephants, elephants
Jump over the fence, fence, fence.

They jumped so high, high, high
They reached the sky, sky, sky
And they didn't come back, back, back
'Til the 4th of July, ly, ly!

jendayee All kids do that all around the world, same hand game !
well... a nursery rhyme... lets see :))))

Dododo ich-mwen dodo
Dododo ich-mwen dodo
Si ich-mwen pa ka dòmi
Gro djab-la ké vini pran'y

That's the first that came to my head.... I guess they wanted to be sure that the kid would sleep as it says : Sleep my child, sleep, if you don't, the devil will come and get you !!!!
Terrible song !
Most of the song I knew as a kid were traditional french nursery rhymes like Frêre Jacques... as at home we were not allowed to speak creole. Now I fight for the language that is part of my culture :)

mimax2 to jendayee: thanks for sharing with us this Creole nursery rhyme, writing to you of course I was thinking about your national language.

jodycmoore Miss Polly had a dolly who was sick, sick sick,
so she called for the Dr. to come quick, quick, quick,
the Dr. came with his bag and his hat
and he knocked on the door with a rap, tap, tap.
He looked at the dolly and he shook his head,
he said miss Polly put her straight to bed
he took out his pad for some pills, pills, pills
I'll be back in the morning if she's still ill, ill.

jodycmoore We also said....
SEE SEE oh playmate,
comeout and play with me
and bring your dollys 3
climb up my apple tree
slide down my rainbow
into my cellar door
and we'll be jolly friends forever more, more, more more more!

Carley One of ours is:
Sing a song of sixpence, a pocket full of rye
four and twenty blackbirds baked in a pie
when the pie was opened the birds began to sing....
Wasn't that a pretty dish to set before a king?

The king was in his counting-house, counting all his money
the queen was in the parlor, eating bread and honey
The maid was in the garden, hanging out the clothes....
When along came a blackbird and nipped off her nose!
