Monday's Child is Fair of Face
Nursery Rhyme
Monday's child is fair of face,
Tuesday's child is full of grace,
Wednesday's child is full of woe,
Thursday's child has far to go.
Friday's child is loving and giving,
Saturday's child works hard for a living,
And the child that is born on the Sabbath Day,
Is bonny and blithe and good and gay.

link


When I was a kid ,I had an aunt that would sing this to me every chance she'd get, because I was born on Wednesday. Then she really was in hog heaven as each one of my three kids were born on Wednesday.

Is there a Nursery Rhyme from your childhood that you remember or there was a specific reason it was always sang, like being a 'Wednesday's child is full of woe,'

"Sana, sana, colita de rana. Si no sanas hoy, sanarás mañana."

Cured everything when we were little, makes no f***ing sense as an adult.

In my family various parts of the "To market, to market" rhyme are said as applicable... or not... and sometimes someone will start it, and others will finish it.

Home again, home again, jiggety-jig is the most common line.

And also the Nursery Rhyme "If wishes were horses, beggars would ride".



Side note: It isn't a Nursery Rhyme, but one of my favorite lines is, That dog ain't gonna hunt when someone says some complete BS.

Jack and Jill
Went up the hill
To fetch a pail of water
Jack fell down
And broke his crown,
And Jill came tumbling after.

this how most people know this nursery rhyme, but over time, it had been add verses.

Jack and Jill
Went up the hill
To fetch a pail of water
Jack fell down
And broke his crown,
And Jill came tumbling after.

By the early 20th century this had been modified in some collections, such as L. E. Walter's, Mother Goose's Nursery Rhymes (London, 1919) to:


Up Jack got
And home did trot,
As fast as he could caper;
And went to bed
And plastered his head
With vinegar and brown paper.

A third verse, sometimes added to the rhyme, was first recorded in a 19th-century chapbook and took
Twentieth-century versions of this verse include:

When Jill came in
How she did grin
To see Jack's paper plaster;
Mother vexed
Did whip her next
For causing Jack's disaster.

so, it seem that jack and jill climb up the hill, to fetch a bottle of liquid, they got drunk. both wineheads lost their balance and tumbling down the hill. they were smash.

jack was soo smash, he try to run home. as fast as jack could to get home. jack was soo smash, he went to bed. he realizes in bed that he drink and getting drunk on vinegar. that jack had the bottle, he was drinking the bottle in a brown paper bag. a true winehead.

so when jill got home, with a drunken grin on her face. her mother saw that her daughter become a winehead. jill's mother whip the crap out of jill's ass. jill's mother be damn if jill will ever see jack again!

you see why that they stick with this verse only:

Jack and Jill
Went up the hill
To fetch a pail of water
Jack fell down
And broke his crown,
And Jill came tumbling after.

if every child that read the whole nursery rhyme of jack and jill.

everybody for centuries would be wineheads, before they were 10.

None of us were/are named Jack or Jill but, we, that would be anywhere from 4 to an even dozen depending on how quick grandpa was or how slow us kids were in the morning after breakfast. There was always some of us escaped grandpa's work detail only to get caught in grandmas, I was always when we were with grandpa that invariably a few of us would get in a hurry, then a race going down to the trunk for tools or down to the work with water or tools from the truck. Most of us were pretty good at keeping our feet under us and our a** behind us but, two or three never did fully comprehend that concept and could be seen rolling like a boulder down off the trail and bouncing off a tree trunk to come to a rolling stop up against the bottom wires of the barbed wire fence. My brother Adolph was one of those kids. His scalp looked like a road map of scars. Grandpa and his brother uncle Morris could be heard singing the jack and jill tune while they dusted off the tumblers and sent them on back to work.

Did being called a something that doesn't exist , work the same as having an adult female kiss the boo boo when it came to how it "Cured everything" ?

As a kid having a boo boo kissed did nothing for the pain and never stopped the bleeding , but every grownup female in the family believed it did . Then When I was one of those grown up females kissing boo boos I hardly ever remembered what I swore I'd never do when I had kids.
Now back to the name calling. Before it becomes an adult, a frog loses its tail healthy or not .

I have heard that dog won't hunt since I was a kid , but the to market one is not one I can ever remember hearing.
It was " if wishes were penny's we'd all be rich " around here. Or a favorite , when some one , a kid, would start complaining and whining and wishing , You can wish in one hand and s*** ( mens version) spit ( women's version) in the hand and see which fills up first.

The magic frog a**



Somethings always lost in the translation when going from anything to english. Is it a** or tail ?
And that question makes it sound like no nursery rhyme

Some of my Bolivian friends, when happy and excited, would sometimes yell "Miercoles".

I know its a sort of colloquial/slang thing, but it cracks me up.

WEDNESDAY!

Google says tail, but I’ve always understood it as ass. Like you can refer to human colita and they don’t have tails. The root word is cola. -ita is just the diminutive.

Though the phrase “move your colita” was common to get someone seated to move. I also speak New Mexican Spanglish so google hardly ever agrees with us.

Just when I thought I knew enough Spanish to say I knew Spanish, I heard the phrase 'New Mexican Spanglish' and found out I don't know any or very little real Spanish.
Wasn't it called slang back in the day ?

There is slang which is individual words and phrases. Spanglish just means we start a sentence in English and finish it in Spanish, or the other way around. There are words I did know what they were in English until i was a grown adult, and there are words that even when speaking Spanish is said in english with a half-ass spanish accent. No one from Mexico or Spain cane to northern NM to tell us the right word so we just made it up. both sides of my family are from different parts of northern NM.

My Spanish is even more sucky, I can understand almost everything conversationally. I do have trouble translating at work though as i dont know a lot of academic terms, so that requires google or charades.
I never learned how to properly speak it, (I cant roll my Rs and i suck at vocabulary. My parents didn't make me learn it, as it was better i knew english really well. They know both, but came form the generation where it was common and legal to beat children for speaking spanish in school. So i understand their decision on not forcing me to use it other than talking to family.
