sixpenceee:

Hey! sixpenceee here to ruin your childhood. So some of you guys may have already heard some of them but here’s a complete list.
You should know that most nursery rhymes were never even intended for children. Many were political statements, drowned in nonsense to protect the singer from being prosecuted for treason, and set to a fun melody that was easy to remember and pass along.
 If children overheard, there was no real concern. During the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries kids were not treated like kids, but more like “miniature adults”.
Alright here we go.
RING AROUND THE ROSIES: 
Ring-a-ring-a-roses,A pocket full of posiesAshes! Ashes!We all fall down.
In 1665, the bubonic plague struck London hard, killing 20 percent of the population within a year. “Ring o’ Roses” is said to indicate a rosy rash that spread across the victims’ bodies, while “a pocket full of posies” was used to ward off the smell of disease. Obviously, the “ashes, ashes” that come falling down are the remnants of cremated dead bodies.
THE ABOVE IS NOT TRUE
Ring around the rosie isn’t actually about the bubonic plague, it’s a popular myth tho.
According to snopes.com it may have arose because of the religious ban on dancing in the 19th century Protestant area in Britain and North America. 
Young adults found a way around it by this rhyme. Going around in circles wasn’t really “dancing”
The rhyme itself has no particular meaning, it just sounded good. 
ROCK A BYE BABY: 
Hush-a-bye babyOn the tree top,When the wind blowsThe cradle will rock.When the bough breaks,The cradle will fall,And down will fall babyCradle and all.
In the original publication of the rhyme, this is what was said "This may serve as a Warning to the Proud and Ambitious, who climb so high that they may generally fall at last."
That baby is a goner.
IT’S RAINING, IT’S POURING:
It’s raining, it’s pouring,The old man’s snoring.He got into bedAnd bumped his headAnd couldn’t get up in the morning.
Children of the mid-twentieth century used to amuse themselves on rainy days by imagining the deaths of the elderly and putting their fantasy to a jaunty tune. 
He couldn’t get up because he was dead, not extra tired from bumping his head in the night. Dead. 
THERE WAS AN OLD WOMAN WHO LIVED IN A SHOE:
There was an old woman who lived in a shoe.She had so many children, she didn’t know what to do;She gave them some broth without any bread;Then whipped them all soundly and put them to bed.
Just a poor women trying to feed her kids right? Wrong. Read the ending of the original version.
When she came back They were a’lying deadShe went to the wrightTo get them a coffinWhen she came backThey were a’lying laughingShe gaed up the stairTo ring the bellThe bell-rope brokeAnd down she fell
SING A SONG OF SIXPENCE:
(Yikes this one is my URL)
The maid was in the garden,Hanging out the clothes;When down came a blackbirdAnd pecked off her nose.
In this rhyme a maid’s nose is pecked off by blackbirds, because she made a blackbird pie. In the original rhyme, it’s not birds that are baked into the pies, but “four and twenty naughty boys”
EEPER WEEPER:
Notice how close this one is to Peter, Peter Pumpkin Eater. Just read this one. Today’s murder crimes are yesterday’s nursery rhymes. 
Eeper Weeper, chimney sweeper,Had a wife but couldn’t keep her.Had another, didn’t love her,Up the chimney he did shove her.
LONDON BRIDGE IS FALLING DOWN:
You probably have heard of this verse:
London Bridge is falling down,Falling down, falling down.London Bridge is falling down,My fair lady.
It makes references to the famous stone bridge that was commissioned by Henry II in the late-1100s. It’s a simple song that lists different materials to try to keep the bridge from collapsing
But have you heard of this verse?
Set a man to watch all night,Watch all night, watch all night,Set a man to watch all night,My fair lady
Seems like a watchman to guard the structure right?
WRONG.
Legend has it, living people were built into the foundations of walls and gates “to serve as guardian spirits.”
RUB A DUB DUB:
Rub a dub dub
Three men in a tub
And how do you think they got there?
The butcher, the baker and the candlestick-maker
It was enough to make a man stare.


At first it’s a bit homoerotic… then we read the original, or at least the oldest known version:


Rub a dub dub
Three maids in a tub
And how do you think they got there?
The butcher, the baker and the candlestick-maker
And all of them gone to the fair.


Well, it sounds like a peep show might be in town. Peep shows were a popular form of entertainment in the 14th century, and it appears that our friends have gone to catch a glimpse of the maids in the tub.
BAA, BAA BLACK SHEEP:
Baa baa black sheep,
Have you any wool?
Yes sir, yes sir,
Three bags full.
One for the Master, 
One for the Dame,
And one for the little boy
Who lives down the lane.


And with the original ending…


And none for the little boy 
who cries down the lane.


it’s about taxes! Back in the 13th century, King Edward I realized that he could make some decent cash by taxing the sheep farmers.
As a result of the new taxes, one third of the price of a sack of wool went to the king, one third to the church and the last third to the farmer. Nothing was left for the shepherd boy, crying down the lane. As it happens, black sheep are also bad luck: the fleece can’t be dyed, and so it’s worth less to the sheep farmer. 
This rhyme was a tale of misery.
