UPDATED CHILDREN'S SONGS, PART ONE

UPDATED CHILDREN'S SONGS, PART ONE

Our exhaustive study of nursery rhymes has found many of their lyrics to be utter gibberish. And so we present the first in an ongoing series offering our readers more relevant words for classic children's tunes.

Today's installment: "I'm a Little Filthpot," with new lyrics inspired by Tiny Girl's fondness for shoveling playground sand into her clothes and onto her hair:

I'm a little filthpot, short and stout,
I get so filthy, when I go out,
If you clean me up, then I will shout,
I'm a little filthpot, short and stout.
(Readers are welcome to share their own versions of this or other nursery rhymes. If your lyrics are published here, you'll win a one-year subscription to this free site.)
