Song – Circle Songs (Hap Palmer)

Hap Palmer’s website

Gather ’round and sing
Circle songs from long ago
Come and join the ring
Ready, set, go

Here we go ’round the mulberry bush
The mulberry bush, the mulberry bush
Here we go ’round the mulberry bush
So early in the morning
Verse 2 This is the way we stretch and yawn
Verse 3 This is the way we touch our toes
Verse 4 This is the way we wiggle and shake

Ring around the rosy, pocket full of posies
Ashes, ashes, we all fall down
Verse 2 Jump around the rosy
Verse 3 Run around the rosy
Verse 4 Tip toe ’round the rosy

You put your hand inside, you put your hand outside
You put your hand inside and you shake it all about
You do the hokey pokey and you turn yourself around
That’s what it’s all about
Verse 2 foot inside
Verse 3 head inside
Verse 4 whole self in

Now we’ve sung The Mulberry Bush
And Ring Around the Rosy
We’ve done the Hokey Pokey
Now home it’s time to mosey
With circle songs from long ago
Ring around the rosy, pocket full of posies
Ashes, ashes, we all fall down
