The Merry-Go-Round Printable Lyrics – PDF

“The Merry-Go-Round” is a popular children’s song of English origin and singing game or action song as well. The story narrates how the merry-go-round broke and the kids fell down because they were too many. Since the playground is the natural habitat of younger kids, it’s no wonder why there are a lot of versions of a song that tells everyday stories with the merry-go-round, the seesaw or the swing.

The tune is similar to “Here We Go Round The Mulberry Bush”. The rhyme is often played as a game, where the kids sing and skip holding hands in a circle, to end hilariously collapsing (perhaps sometimes on to each other) at the last line. This type of play resembles the old singing game “Ring a Ring o’ Roses (Ring Around the Rosie)”.

Lyrics

Version 1

The merry-go-round goes ’round and ’round,
The children laughed and laughed and laughed,
So many were going ’round and ’round,
That the merry-go-round collapsed.

Version 2

The merry-go-round goes ’round and ’round,
All the children having fun
So many going ’round and ’round,
That the merry-go-round fell down.

The seesaw goes up and down,
All the children having fun
So many going up and down,
And the seesaw fell down.

The swing moves in and out up and down,
All the children having fun
So many going in and out up and down,
That the swing fell down.

The merry-go-round goes ’round and ’round,
The seesaw goes up and down,
The swing moves in and out up and down,
All the children are having fun.
