All Around The Mulberry Bush

Today is Pop Goes the Weasel Day! This song was quite and is still fairly popular for little kids to sing. It started a long time ago in the mid 1800's as a dance. I can only hope that it wasn't the same kind of dance that children now "dance" to it's tune, as that would be quite embarrassing to think. I say "dance" in quotations for the children because it's really less like they are dancing in a ring or circle, and more like they are putting all their might and weight into forming some kind of amorphous, chin-seeking blob that spins. However, feel free to spend the day humming this song to or around others or surprising them like a real life Jack-in-the-box. (Psst! That's the tune that the Jack-in-the-box plays)

(That's a weasel)
Thanks for reading!
