Top 10 Scary Nursery Rhyme Dark Origins – Part 2


Hello and welcome back to the Most Amazing
channel on the internet. I am your host, Rebecca Felgate and today
we are talking about the Top 10 Nursery Rhyme Scary Origins Part TWO YES TWO. You guys loved part one so much that part
two is here! Hurrah. A few things – 1 – stick around to the
end of the video where I will be reading some comments out from a previous video….also
why don’t you guys leave me a comment on this one letting me know your favourite nursery
rhyme! LIKE SHARE SUBSCRIBE 10 – Jack and Jill
Jack and Jill went up the hill, to fetch a pail of water. Jack fell down,
and broke his crown; and Jill came tumbling after. – So apparently Jack and Jill is actually
an allegorical poem originating from France about the reign of terror – the end of the
French Monarchy. Jack refers to King Louis the 16th, the Last
King of France. He fell down, and broke his crown – well
Louis met his end at the guillotine, shortly followed by his Queen Marie Antoinette, who
like Jill…. Made her fall from grace shortly after. The reign of terror was complete in 1793,
when Antionette was chopped. 9 – Goosey Goosey Gander
This is another one of those secretly about religion things….and back in the day religion
often meant death. Oh…did I say back in the day… So the rhyme goes Goosey, goosey, gander,
Whither dost thou wander? Upstairs and downstairs And in my lady’s chamber. There I met an old man who wouldn’t say his
prayers; I took him by the left leg and threw him down the stairs. Sooo basically this is protestant Catholic
thing. The story goes that when King Henry VIII created
the Anglican church, a lot of catholic priests were understandably not that happy. Many refused to follow the protestant faith
and made secret rooms to pray in latin in. If they were found, they were often thrown
down the stairs or put to death. So when Goosey gander is thrown down the stairs
in this rhyme, it is likely he was sent off to be murdered horribly. Cheery. 8 – Lucy Locket
Nothing scarier than your loved one leaving you for another person….especially when
that person is a courtesan…. Which is the nicer name for a prostitute. The little Lucy locket rhyme goes Lucy Locket
lost her pocket, Kitty Fisher found it; not a penny was there in it, only ribbon round
it. So yeah, the story goes that Lucy’s beau
left her and spent his money on buying Kitty for a few noghts. Back in the day, in the 1700s, it seems that
locket was a word for….well… you have a guess. 7 – There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a
Fly Okay, actually the nursery rhyme is dark and
scary in itself when you stop and think about it, regardless of its origin. The story is total chaos – it is about a
woman who swallows a fly but then ends up swallowing loads of other ridiculous things
to try and catch the thing that came before. First she swallows a fly – we don’t know
why and perhaps she will die, but in a bid for saviour she swallows a spider to catch
the fly, then a bird to catch the spider, then a cat to catch the bird, then a dog to
catch the cat…. Then she swallows a horse and dies, of course. This is a whole lot of death and mindless
consumption for one kids rhyme. A cautionary tale, sure, but is this appropriate. 6 – Ladybug, Ladybug
The content of this one is super scary as is… have a listen….. Ladybug, ladybug fly away home,
Your house is on fire, your children will burn. Except for the little one whose name is Ann,
who hid away in a frying pan. Pretty dark anyway, right? Well it should be, as it seems the rhyme originated
from the Great Fire of London in 1666, in which much of the British capital burned. Only 6 people died but a lot of people were
injured. Who Anne is, I have no idea, but I would never
advise hiding in a frying pan. 5 – Three Blind Mice
Three blind mice. Three blind mice. See how they run. See how they run. They all ran after the farmer’s wife, who
cut off their tails with a carving knife, did you ever see such a sight in your life,
as three blind mice. So this little ditty is said to refer to Queen
Mary the first, AKA Bloody Mary. The three blind mice are said to be protestant
bishops – blind because of their religion. Mary famously went on a brutal murdering spree
of Protestants…although she didn’t cut off tails, she burned most at the stake. Although some reports say that Mary was partial
to a bit of dismembering when it came to her enemies….so…maybe! 4 – 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. I would never have guess the origins of this
one…. People having a nice little dance around a
bush? Cool? Well apparently the rhyme comes from a women’s
prison in Wakefield, England. The rhyme comes from the mid 19th century
and is said to depict how female prisoners were made to exercise by running around a
Mulberry bush in the moonlight. Doesn’t sound scary? Try being a female prisoner in the 19th century. 3 – Sing a Song of Sixpence
This is one of my favourite nursery rhymes and it is very popular in the UK! It goes Sing a song of sixpence, A pocket
full of rye. Four and twenty blackbirds,Baked in a pie. When the pie was opened The birds began to
sing; Wasn’t that a dainty dish,To set before the king. The king was in his counting house, counting
out his money; the queen was in the parlour, eating bread and honey. The maid was in the garden, Hanging out the
clothes, When down came a blackbird And pecked off her nose. SO apparently this little ditty was about
the divorce of Henry the 8th to his first wife Catherine of Aragon and his dissolution
of the church as a result of the Catholic Church’s stringent rules on separation. The blackbirds are said to be the bishops
of the Catholic Church, who didn’t like Anne Boleyn. The king was in his counting house counting
out his money refers to the money the King made off stealing the catholic church’s
assets. We all know how it ended between horny henry
and Anne Boleyn…… chopped. 2 – Little Miss Muffet
Little miss Muffet Sat on a Tuffet eating her curds and whey, along came a spider who
sat down beside her and frightened Miss Muffet away. Sooooooo apparently during the 16th Century
– some physicians – including Thomas Muffett – believed that eating spiders would cure
certain illnesses… so the rhyme is about the fear patients felt when they were presented
with arachnids to eat. Understandably!!!!! Ewww. 1 – Humpty Dumpty
So Humpty Dumpty is kind of a dark anyway – Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall, humpty dumpty
had a great fall, all of the kings horses and all the kings men couldn’t put humpty
together again. Sounds pretty grim for old humpty… it turns
out Historians think that Humpty Dumpty was actually the name for a cannon used during
the English Civil War. CLASSIC English dark humour, giving a weapon
of war a cutesy name. We are dark dark beasts. The story goes that King Charles the 1st had
a big old cannon, the aforementioned humpty. He put it high up on a wall and it was used
to bombard and kill the enemy. Sadly for old humpty – he was knocked off
the wall thanks to a nasty retaliating cannon. The wall beneath humpty collapsed and – like
the rhyme goes – all the kings horses and all the kings men couldn’t put humpty together
again. In the end, Charles lost the war and was executed. Soo…. Sucks to be Charles, really! WELL THERE we go that was the top 10 scary
nursery rhymes dark origins Part 2! What did you think? What else should we create dark origins for? Comments from scary wedding stories:
Jordan Graham said: I really don’t know if I wanna get married
or not at this point in my life, I just kinda feel like it would be a lot easier to prove
you love someone by staying with them normally as either a boyfriend or girlfriend forever
if you want instead if trying to do all that fancy wedding stuff and everything?. You know what…. I feel you ……. It’s an expensive way
to say I like you. Know the Truth – the Truth Shall Set You
Free said: I hate weddings! Is that unusual?!? ?? they are long, and boring. The only thing I like about weddings are seeing
the wedding dress, brides maid dresses and the cute flower girl and ring carrier. Laura Anderson said: Unfortunately I’ll always
be the owner of a lonely heart. Laura I don’t believe that for a second. I believe there is someone out there for everyone…
you just need to be open to receiving it and let go of your expectations of how it will
come to you. You know what – I guess it is how it is
done….. I have been to great weddings and I have been
to boring ones! The best are the most genuine. You guys all had nice things to say about
my outfit in that video – so thank you!
