    Don't ever laugh as the hearse goes by, 

    For you may be the next to die, 

    They put you in a big black box, 

    Then cover you up with dirt and rocks, 

    All goes well for about a week, 

    Then your coffin begins to leak, 

    The worms crawl in, the worms crawl out, 

    The worms play Pinochle on your snout, 

    They eat your eyes, they eat your nose, 

    They eat the jelly between your toes, 

    Your eyes fall out, and your teeth decay, 

    A rotten end to a lovely day.


    I like C/B,very happy go lucky,

    Countless kids are still in therapy over this one, I am sure!

    Jelly between your toes??

    Toe jelly (or jam) is a slang reference to the dead skin cells, sock fluff, surface dirt, sweat, skin oils and bacteria which tend to collect between a person's toes throughout the day.

    Jelly on your belly.

    Yep, when I was a kid my aunt would recite this to me every time we drove past the funeral home or saw a hearse. Tee hee hee, I used to hold my breath when we passed by the funeral home so I would not inhale dead people germs and die! (*~*)

    CB...Don't try to fool us, you probably still do that. LOL!!

    Okay...I won't tell. :)))

    Hahaha! As soon as I began reading this comment I thought to myself, " Self, this comment from DonBoyed is going to end up being an advertisement". The way the comment was written reminded me of the person who commented to me on another thread about the nappies which also turned out to be an advertisement. Great job Mrs. Ducky.

    Thanks CB. Just one of the many names in our "group" of daily free advertisers! I hope they (s/he) find another forum soon.

    Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall.  Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
    All the king's horses, and all the king's men couldn't put Humpty together again.      ""


    Humpty Dumpty was a satire against the English monarchy losing one of their wars.( or was it the German? ) most old nursery rhymes were.

    mcm: I did some WIKIPEDIA research about Humpty Dumpty, and this is what I found. Goes along with what you said, and then some:
    According to the Oxford English Dictionary the term "humpty dumpty" referred to a drink of brandy boiled with ale in the seventeenth century.[1] The riddle probably exploited (another theory was that H.D. was a riddle), for misdirection, the fact that "humpty dumpty" was also eighteenth-century reduplicative slang for a short and clumsy person.[8] The riddle may depend on the assumption that, whereas a clumsy person falling off a wall might not be irreparably damaged, an egg would be. The rhyme is no longer posed as a riddle, since the answer is now so well known. Similar riddles have been recorded by folklorists in other languages, such as "Boule Boule" in French, "Lille Trille" in Swedish and Norwegian and "Runtzelken-Puntzelken" or "Humpelken-Pumpelken" in different parts of Germany; although none is as widely known as Humpty Dumpty is in English.[1]

    The rhyme does not explicitly state that the subject is an egg, possibly because it may have been originally posed as a riddle.[1] There are also various theories of an original "Humpty Dumpty". One, advanced by Katherine Elwes Thomas in 1930[9] and adopted by Robert Ripley,[1] posits that Humpty Dumpty is King Richard III of England, depicted in Tudor histories, and particularly in Shakespeare's play, as humpbacked and who was defeated, despite his armies at Bosworth Field in 1485. However, the term humpback was not recorded until the eighteenth century, and no direct evidence linking the rhyme with the historical figure has been advanced.[10]
