ITSY BITSY SPIDER

The itsy bitsy spider went up the water spout
Down came the rain and washed the spider out
The sun came out and dried up all the rain
And the itsy bitsy spider went up the spout again

In Germany we sing:

Imselbimsel-Spinne wie lang Dein Faden ist -
Fiel der Regen runter und der Faden riß -
Kommt die liebe Sonne, schleckt den Regen auf -
Imselbimsel-Spinne klettert wieder rauf.

If you sing this with children, there are nice little gestures following the text.

Eensy Wincy spider climbed up a brussel sprout
Along came the chef and he washed poor Wincy out
He then pulled out the plug and he washed the sink again
And poor old Eensy Wicny had a journey down the drain

Now when Dick G and Susan of DT were in my kitchen, they talked about a rendition of this one to the Mary Ellen Carter. Something to the effect of

Rise again rise again no matter if your legs they be two four six eight or ten . . .

Somehow I think it may be in the database, ahlthough I havent checked and am not a mistress of blue clidkey things. I don't know, are parodies generally copywritten??

Yep, it's there. I typed in Spider under search and came up with it. It's the second eensey weensey listing. What fun!! Also found my friend Dick MaCormac's rendition of little boxes, a very seventies version, in there. My I'm amazed at what lurks in the cobwebs of this database.

Translation program won't do it without the right accents, what I don't know how to do... and I bet it's 'lavo' as in wash. (accent over the 'o').

There is a Spanish nursery rhyme which uses a similar tune to Eensey Weensey Spider:

Habia una vez un gatico chiquico
Habia una vez un gatico chiquico
Que no podia que no podia
Caminar

Pasaron dos o tres, cuatro semanas
Pasaron dos o tres, cuatro semanas
Y no podia y no podia

Y si la historia no les parece jarta
Y si la historia no les parece jarta
Y si la historia no les parece jarta
Se la volvemos se la volvemos a contar!

(I learned it from a Colombian friend Margarita from Cucuta, the hottest city in northern Colombia. Sorry I couldn't find the accent marks for "podia". Also "jarta" should be "harta" in regular Spanish, but Margarita sang it as jarta).

I have the elephant on the spider's web as a French one.


Un éléphant que se balancait
Sur une étoile araignée
Il trouve ce si interessant
Qu'il allait chercher un autre elephant


So it's a bit like 10 Green Bottles. Next verse 2 elephants on the spider's web etc. Daft or what!!!

Re the elephants: I learned this in church camp as a kid:

One elephant came out to play
On a spider's web one day
He had such enormous fun
That he called for another elephant to come.

Then it goes on to two elephants and so one.

(I'll post the tune if anyone's interested)

At the end of the first verse, the song leader would pick someone from the campfire circle to be the second elephant and they would make an "elephant chain": the leader with one arm held out like an elephant's trunk and the other between his legs as a tail, which the second elephant would grasp with HIS "trunk".

At the end of each verse the last elephant got to choose a new elephant to join the line and the elephant chain would slowly make its way through the campfire circle, growing all the time. We could usually make it last through 8-10 elephants before it got boring.

Incy Wincy Spider lived in a shoe,
Down came the rain and she didn't know what to do,
Out came the sunshine without any bread,
So Incy Wincy Spider sent them all to bed.

Incy Wincy Spider, a pocket full of rye,
Down came the rain, baked in a pie,
Out came the sunshine, and one for the dame,
So Incy Wincy Spider lives down the lane.

Try it with Ten Green Bottles....

There's an Eensy Weensy Spider song that's a parody of The Mary Ellen Carter. I'm trying to find it but a DT/Forum search yielded nothing, either for Eensy Weensy Spider or Itsy Bitsy Spider except for the old children's song.

Learnt this version when I was teaching at a nursery

Eensy Weensy Spider climbed up water spout,
Down came the rain and washed the spider out,
Out came the sun and dried up all the water
so Eensy Weensy Spider had to climb again...

I especially liked singing this with the hand gestures. It really had the children's attention

When I was in Denmark, back in the '78, I was given a local poem and told it was to the melody of "Lille Peder Adderkop," which turned out to be our own "Eensy Weensy Spider." For one who had run across the word Adderkop in "The Hobbit" and never before, it opened up new ideas.

dumating ang ulan
tinangay siya
lumabas ang araw
natuyo ang sanga
maliliit na gagamba
