Hello kiddies. If you would like to sit in a circle on the floor six feet apart and pretend to hold hands. Let’s sing some nursery rhymes behind our masks.|
1. Peter, Peter Pumpkin Eater,
Had a wife but couldn't keep her;
He put her in a pumpkin shell
Because he was white and she was black.
2. Baa, baa black sheep
Have you any wool?
Children! Children! We don’t sing this anymore. It’s John Doe stealing black wool.
3. Here we go round the mulberry bush,
The mulberry bush,
The mulberry bush.
Here we go round the mulberry bush
On a cold and frosty morning.
It’s alright kiddies. Don’t cry. It was a black frost.
4. Hey diddle diddle,
The cat and the fiddle,
The cow jumped over the
Stop! Stop! – What colour is the object we’re singing about?
Don’t say it! We don’t use that horrible word!
5. Hickory Dickory Dock
The mouse ran up the clock
The clock struck one.
Isn’t that typical? I bet the one struck was black.
6. Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
All the King’s horses and all the King’s men,
Put him back together because he was a brown egg.
7. Jack and Jill went up the hill
To fetch a pail of water.
Jack fell down and broke his crown,
And Jill said, you got your due you f**king racist.
Well done, children. Now it’s time to go home to the caregivers I have allotted you. They won’t brainwash you like your parents.
