I read that ring o roses actually dates from the great plague of London in 1665 and therefore not that old really.

Another version of Cinderella tells how Cinders and her prince force the step mother to dance for them at the wedding feast in metal shoes heated in a furnace until she drops dead.

Nice!

The one who said the thing about the London Plague is wrong. That song dates back to the Black Death that killed 1/3 of the population in Europe.

Nursery rhymes and fairy tales depict the culture, lifestyle of the society, etx. of the times. Upon doing research on the Great Influenza epidemic of 1918-1919 (the Spanish Flu), I found that more people died in one year compaired to the Black Plague of Europe which took four years for same ratio of deaths. The children during the Spanish flu in America jumped rope and sang a song..."I had a little bird....And Enza was it's name....I opened up the _..And In-flu-Enza!). Very frightful, but interesting.

Its about getting the symptoms of the black death and dying.

Something tells me I'm the only one who finds that funny. (?)

Ding, dong, bell,
Pussy's in the well!
Who put her in?
Little Tommy Green.
Who pulled her out?
Big Johnny Stout. What a naughty boy was that,
To drown poor pussycat,
Who never did him any harm,
But killed the mice in his father's barn!

Another nice one...

I think you're thinking of the Andrew Dice Clay version...

Jack and Jill,
Went up the Hill,
Each with a buck and a quarter,
Jill came down with two-fifty....Oh!
