Three blind mice. Three blind mice.See how they run. See how they run.They all ran after the farmer’s wife,Who cut off their tails with a carving knife,Did you ever see such a sight in your life,As three blind mice?
Well well, I have a ton of English nursery rhymes in my head. Why of course, after the bell rang at school, and after we’d all stood to attention and walked single file to class, and after the bell rang again for lunch time, the playground would erupt into this British chorus of ancient rhymes like the one above which is over 400 years old. How language travels… Don’t even ask why this song popped into my head when I saw this picture.
