Three blind mice song lyrics

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?

Three blind mice, three blind mice, Darting and dashing with all their might, Chasing their tails in the pale moonlight, Did you ever see such a sight in your life, As three brave mice?

About the Three blind mice song

“Three Blind Mice” is a tale of three sightless rodents on a rather adventurous quest that doesn’t go as planned. With its origins dating back to the 1600s, this rhyme has a melody that’s spry and sprightly, even if the story is a bit more, well, cutting!

The farmer’s wife, the chaser with a carving knife, gives our tail, I mean, tale a bit of a twist. But worry not—our version is all about fun and frolics, with no mice or tails in a tizzy!

What can your child learn from it?

This little ditty might seem like just a catchy tune, but it’s also a gateway to lessons in rhythm, storytelling, and even a dash of history. Plus, it’s a great conversation starter about being kind to all creatures, big and small, with or without tails!

You can also bring this classic tale to life and help your child learn English in a fun and engaging way with some fun activities like the following.

Imaginative Play:

Encourage your kids to imagine what it’s like to be as small as a mouse. How might the world look from down there?

Musical Motions:

Clap or tap to the beat as you sing. It’s a fabulous way to develop timing and musicality.

Rhyme Time:

Talk about rhyming words like “mice” and “nice,” or “life” and “wife.” It’s a fun way to build phonemic awareness.

Crafty Mice:

Get crafty and create three little mouse puppets using socks, pompoms, or paper. No sharp objects around, we promise!

Moral of the Story:

Discuss the importance of kindness and the consequences of actions, in a way that’s appropriate for young minds, of course!

Safety First:

Use the story as a springboard to talk about safety in the home and the importance of looking out for one another.

As we nestle down from our mousey excursion, remember that every tune has a tale, and every giggle is a chance to learn and grow. So until we nibble our way through the next story, keep those little feet scampering, those tiny hands clapping, and those big hearts caring!
