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, (The Circle)

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

You owe me five farthings, (The Bounce)

Say the bells of St. Martin’s. (The Wave)

When will you pay me? (The Squeeze)

Say the bells of Old Bailey. (The Wave)

When I grow rich, (The Fan)

Say the bells of Shoreditch. (The Wave)

When will that be? (The Claw)

Say the bells of Stepney. (The Wave)

I do not know, (The Sprinkle)

Says the great bell of Bow. (The Walk)

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

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