Story Massage – Oranges and Lemons

We’re having great fun supporting all those people involved with World Nursery Rhyme Week (10th – 14th November 2014) by sharing Story Massage ideas for the five chosen nursery rhymes. Do give it a try! Today’s nursery rhyme is Oranges and Lemons.


Oranges and Lemons

Oranges and lemons, (Circle)

Say the bells of St. Clement’s. (Wave)

You owe me five farthings, (Bounce)

Say the bells of St. Martin’s. (Wave)

When will you pay me? (Squeeze)

Say the bells of Old Bailey. (Wave)

When I grow rich, (Fan)

Say the bells of Shoreditch. (Wave)

When will that be? (Claw)

Say the bells of Stepney. (Wave)

I do not know, (Sprinkle)

Says the great bell of Bow. (Walk)

Here comes a candle to light you to bed, (Calm)

And here comes a chopper to chop off your head. (Drum)
