BISHOP FRED HENRY
This song, same tune as Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush, tells the story of several children on a merry-go-round that - in a sadistic twist - collapses because so many children are riding it. The circle game that accompanies it is similar to the one for Ring Around the Rosie.
"The merry-go-round goes 'round and 'round,
The children laughed and laughed and laughed,
So many were going 'round and 'round,
That the merry-go-round collapsed."
