Ring around the Rosies
Pocket full of Posies
Ashes…Ashes…We all fall down
Ring around the Rosies
Pocket full of Posies
Ashes…Ashes…We all fall down

Nursery rhymes are said, verses in my head
Into my childhood they're spoon fed
Hidden violence revealed, darkness that seems real
Look at the pages that cause all this evil

One…Two…Buckle my shoe
Three…Four…Shut the door
Five…Six…Pick up sticks
Seven…Eight…Lay them straight

London Bridge is falling down
…Falling down
…Falling down
London Bridge is falling down
My fair lady

Nursery rhymes are said, verses in my head
Into my childhood they're spoon fed
Hidden violence revealed, darkness that seems real
Look at the pages that cause all this evil

Nick-Knack…Paddy-Whack…Give a dog a bone
This old man came rolling home
Nick-Knack…Paddy-Whack…Give a dog a bone
This old man came rolling home
Nick-Knack…Paddy-Whack…Give a dog a bone!
This old man came rolling home!
Nick-Knack…Paddy-Whack…Give a dog a bone!
This old man came rolling home!
Nick-Knack…Paddy-Whack…Give a dog a bone!
This old man came rolling home!
Nick-Knack…Paddy-Whack…Give a dog a bone!
This old man came…

Mary had a little lamb it's fleece was white as snow
(Baa…Baa…Black sheep have you any wool?)
Mary had a little lamb it's fleece was white as snow
(Yes sir…Yes sir…Three bags full)
Mary had a little lamb it's fleece was white as snow
(Baa…Baa…Black sheep have you any wool?)
Mary had a little lamb!
(Yes sir…Yes sir…Three bags full)

Mary had a little lamb it's fleece was white as snow
(Baa…Baa…Black sheep have you any wool?)
Mary had a little lamb it's fleece was white as snow
(Yes sir…Yes sir…Three bags full)
Mary had a little lamb it's fleece was white as snow
(Baa…Baa…Black sheep have you any wool?)
Mary had a little lamb!
(Yes sir…Yes sir…Three bags full)

So double trash Korn!

Ring around the Rosies
Pocket full of Posies
Ashes…Ashes…We all fall down
Ring around the Rosies
Pocket full of Posies
Ashes…Ashes…We all fall down

Nursery rhymes are said, verses in my head
Into my childhood they're spoon fed
Hidden violence revealed, darkness that seems real

    On itunes, this song is marked explicit, but i don't see any swear words in here. Why?

    i think this song is friggn amazingness in all its morbid and twisted glory. it is fricked up nursery rhymes and ... Jonathan's voice is so sexy... any ways...back to the point its an awsome song and this song can be interpreted in many different ways, but just to point out the obvious

    London bridge---londonbridge Actually collapsing

    Ring around the rosies---the black plague

    personally i think nicknack paddywack---beating up your dog(animal abuse)
    and Baa baa blacksheep--the loner in a group(goth punk , or emo...like me)
    and as for mary had a little lamb---i think it is about slavery.
