Day 150/365: Nursery Rhymes for Newborn

May 30, 2011

I cant remember that I was pampered with nursery rhymes, and if there’s any, surely it is not an English baby songs. What I do remember for baby songs are mostly Tagalog songs like Maliliit na Gagamba (Little Spiders), Bahay Kubo and Leron Leron Sinta. And now, its my turn to introduce new nursery rhymes to my little princess Zcy!

Where does nursery rhymes started?

Nursery rhymes have been around for hundreds of years, and they have been passed down from generation to generation. There is something wonderful about sharing something with your baby or child that was part of your own childhood. I loved the Bahay Kubo nursery rhymes as a child, and even I don’t have any nursery rhyme book to share with my daughter. This is already her digital age so I don’t need to be worry.

Nursery rhymes are fun to share with your baby and child – they also help develop your child’s imagination, sense of rhyme, rhythm and language. They are easy to learn and if repeated, babies and toddlers will anticipate and join in at their favorite parts. For some of us it has been a long time since we have sung or heard these songs, here are some of the famous nursery rhymes for your newborn babies.

Day 150/365: Nursery Rhymes

Little Miss Muffet

Little Miss MUffet
Sat on her tuffet
Eating her curds and whey
Along came a spider And sat down beside her
And frightened Miss Muffet away!

Humpty Dumpty

Humpty Dumpty sat on the wall
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall
All the king’s horses and all the king’s men
Couldn’t put Humpty together again.

Ring a roses

Ring-a-ring-a-roses
A pocket full of posies
A-Tishoo! A-Tishoo!
We all fall down

(Here are some verses you may not know)

The cows are in the meadow
Eating buttercups
A-Tishhoo! A-Tishoo!
We all jump up!

The fish are in the water
The fish are in the sea
We all jump up With a one, two, three!
Little Bo Peep

Little Bo Peep has lost her sheep
And doesn’t know where to find them
Leave them alone, and they will come home
Bringing their tails behind them

Leron Leron Sinta

Leron Leron Sinta
Puno ng papaya
Dala-dala’y buslo
Sisidlan ng bunga
Pagdating sa Dulo
Nabali ang sanga
Kapos kapalaran
Humanap ng iba

Maliliit na gagamba

Maliliit na gagamba,
Umakyat sa sanga.
Dumating and ulan,
Itinaboy sila.
Sumikat ang araw,
Natuyo ang sanga.
Maliliit na gagamba
Ay laging masaya.
