The Play-Party in Indiana.
Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush.
Here we go round the mulberry bush, The mulberry bush, the mulberry bush, Here we go round the mulberry bush. So early in the morning.32
The following stanzas are after the same pattern.
This is the way we wash our hands, etc.
This is the way we wash our clothes, etc.
This is the way we go to church, etc.
This is the way we go to school, etc.
A common variation of this has one stanza concerning the work peculiar to each day of the week. In the dance, the children do this work in pantomime. Any new stanzas are usually pleasing for a time.
Here we go round the mulberry bush, etc. This cold and frosty morning.
This is the way we wash our clothes, All on a Monday morning.
This is the way we iron our clothes, All on a Tuesday morning.
This is the way we mend our clothes. All on a Wednesday morning.
This is the way we go to call, All on a Thursday morning.
This is the way we sweep the house, All on a Friday morning.
This is the way we bake our bread, All on a Saturday morning.
This is the way we go to church, All on a Sunday morning.
32 Or, "This cold and frosty morning."
