The mulberry bush song lyrics

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.

This is the way we wash our face, Wash our face, wash our face, This is the way we wash our face, So early in the morning.

This is the way we comb our hair, Comb our hair, comb our hair, This is the way we comb our hair, So early in the morning.

This is the way we brush our teeth, Brush our teeth, brush our teeth, This is the way we brush our teeth, So early in the morning.

This is the way we put on our clothes, Put on our clothes, put on our clothes, This is the way we put on our clothes, So early in the morning.

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.

About the The mulberry bush song

This is the way we skip and play, with a song that’s as sweet as the berries on a sunny day! “The Mulberry Bush” is a nursery rhyme that’s much like a merry-go-round of melody, teaching us about daily routines through song and sway.

It’s a classic tune created by James Orchard Halliwell in the mid-1800s to use as a fun game for children. an English children’s game in the mid-nineteenth century. But even then, the tune is from a famous opera 100 years before that!

What can your child learn from it?

”The Mulberry Bush” is a fantastic way for your little ones to learn about the natural world, all the while building their understanding of daily tasks and the times of the day. Plus, acting out the lyrics gets those little bodies moving and grooving to the beat, which is great for coordination and following directions.

You can also use the nursery rhyme as a great way to practice learning English! There’s few different activities you could try:

Act It Out:

Have your little learners act out each task as they sing. Washing their face, combing their hair, and brushing their teeth become a part of the playful performance.

Make It A Routine:

Incorporate the song into your morning or evening routines to make daily tasks more fun and memorable.

Nature Walk:

If possible, find a mulberry bush or any bushy plant, and have kids observe and explore it. It’s a hands-on botany lesson!

Circle Games:

Make it a group activity! Children can hold hands and walk in a circle, then switch directions or perform different actions on cue, fostering teamwork and social skills.

Craft Time:

Let’s get crafty by drawing or making a mulberry bush. Use green and purple tissue paper for a textured effect!

Healthy Snacks:

After singing, enjoy some berries as a snack. It’s a yummy way to talk about healthy eating and where food comes from.

And as our song winds down, remember that every day is a new spin around the sun, and every task can be a part of the fun. So, let’s keep singing, keep learning, and let the bushel of memories continue to grow, with each verse we sing and every little step we take.
