Ring a Ring o’ Roses (Ring Around the Rosie) Printable Lyrics – PDF

“Ring a Ring o’ Roses (Ring Around the Rosie)” is a nursery rhyme and singing game. The first known record is from Kate Greenaway’s “Old Nursery Rhymes” (Mother Goose) in 1881.

Concerning the meaning of the lyrics and the game, folklorists believe they are of pagan origins, while more recent readings, which appeared in the mid-twentieth century, associate the meaning with the Great Plague which happened in England in 1665, or with earlier outbreaks of the Black Death in England.
