The Other Side (Dark Nursery Rhymes)

THE ITSY BITSY FLY

The itsy bitsy fly escaped the spider’s grip.

He flew up a drain pipe until he reached the tip.

Down came the water and drenched the fly in rain.

Then the spider caught up to him and grabbed the fly again.

HAMBLE SCRAMBLE

Hamble Scramble knelt by the trees.

Collecting the rocks from around his knees.

When his prey climbed and sat on the wall,

He threw a large rock and watched him fall.

RUM TUM TUM

Rum tum tum,

The rat played the drums.

The bull smoked more than he should.

The bugs made notes of all that they saw,

And the fence ran away with the wood.

HILDA SWILDA

Hilda Swilda, cookies, and cakes,

Threw rocks at boys to hit their face.

When other girls came out to play,

She hit them too, to stay away.

THE SUN’S OUT

The sun’s out, it’s burning

The children were all learning

They all passed out

Due to the drought

Now the undertaker is earning.

JILL BE FAST

Jill be agile

Jill be fast

Jill dodged through the broken glass

Jill stepped left

Jill stepped right

Jill did not see the mad man’s knife.
