Girls And Boys

 

Girls and boys come out to play,

The moon doth shine as bright as day.

Come with a  whoop, come with a call,

Come with a goodwill or not at all.

A halfpenny roll will serve us all,

And we’ll have a pudding in half an hour.

Girls And Boys Historical Reflection

Once upon a time

Girls and boy’s nursery rhyme is from an era when many children seldom had time for play.

The children worked from dusk to dawn,

Without time for a yawn.

Only of an evening with a bright clear moon,

Would the sound of children finally boom.

Often they would go without supper to make the most of the evening. With playtime being so precious they would only invite other children who were in good spirits, or not at all.

The rhyme reflects on how just a halfpenny would satisfy their hunger in order to encourage other children to forgo their supper.

In the nineteenth century the industrial revolution bought even further hardships for children. Many would be forced to work for more than twelve hours a day.

The original rhyme dates back to seventeenth century, before the dark industrious era, when children from the age of five were forced into work.

Girls and boys come out to play,

The moon is shining bright as day;

Leave your supper and leave your sleep,

And come with your playfellows into the street;

Come with a whoop, and come with a call,

Come with good will, or come not at all.

 Let us dance on the open green,

And she who holds longest shall be our queen.

Jack Sprat could eat no fat, his wife could eat no lean,

And so between them both you see, they licked the platter clean.

Jack ate all the lean, his wife ate all the fat,

The bone, they picked it clean, then gave to the cat.

Old Mother Hubbard

Old Mother Hubbard went to the cupboard

To get her poor dog a bone.

When she got there the cupboard was bare,

And so the poor dog had none.
