“This is a short round designed for children around KS2. The rhythm is meant to challenge and enhance a sense of pulse whilst the lyrics are adaptable to almost anything and can allow the children to be really imaginative. For example the lyrics may be changed to “I once saw a girl named Mel, she kept on ringing a bell, I said ‘shut that thing up’ she said, Go away go away… etc’. The lyrical format is designed in this way to allow the children to take ownership of their own verse and give them a sense of empowerment through the music. Although I appreciate the song can not be used as an excuse for any child named Claire the come in the next day with green and blue stripy hair and expect to get away with it.”
