~These Rhymes Three~ .... [NB Not all my work!]

My mother smiled as she bounced me
up and down upon her knee
and as she sung these Rhymes three
I laughed and gurgled happilly!

When I was young my Dad bounced me
Up and down upon his knee
and as he sung these Rhymes three
I laughed and gurgled happilly!

When I was grown ten times three
I bounced my babes upon my knee
and as I sung these Rhymes three
they laughed and gurgled happilly!

…….. [Ok that verse was mine lol but These Three Baby Bouncing Rhymes following are NOT my Work!:]

THESE RHYMES THREE:


“Lady’s Pace – Lady’s Pace – Lady’s Pace – Ladies Pace
….. (slow – walking)
Gentlemen Trot – Gentlemen Trot – Gentlemen Trot – Gentlemen Trot
…….. (bouncing – trotting)
Jockeys Pace – Jockey’s Pace – Jockey’s Pace Home!”
………… (fast lolloping -galloping)


“To market – To market – To buy me a pig
Home again – Home again – Jiggetty-Jig
To market – To market – To buy me a hog
Home again – Home again – Jiggetty-Jog!”


“I want someone to buy me a pony
jig-jog jig-jog, jiggetty-jog
Not too fat and Not too bony
jig-jog jig-jog, jiggetty-jog
For a want to go for a ride, all around the countryside
with— a— jig-jog jig-jog, jig-jog jig-jog, jig-jog jig-jog, jiggetty-jog!

If someone will buy me a pony
jig-jog jig-jog, jiggetty-jog
he will be my one and only
jig-jog jig-jog, jiggetty-jog
I will feed him every day, on scented oats and new born hay
with a – jig-jog jig-jog, jig-jog jig-jog, jig-jog jig-jog, jiggetty-jog!"

Artist's Description

Inspired by the absolutely GORGEOUS art! of Helen Chierego

Her Rider piece so reminds me of these childhood rhymes that it inspired me to write them out which inspired me to write a ditty lol – wish I’d had it 25 years ago when my first baby was due!

[OMG He’ll be 25 next April!!! {Gulp} mother! ]

♥ Happy Baby Bouncing! ♥
