Solomon Grundy

One of the characters in The Best of Men mentioned Solomon Grundy and reminded me  of this sad tale of a man who lived just one week, fitting a whole life into seven days.  Solomon Grundy

Solomon Grundy
Born on Monday
Christened on Tuesday
Married on Wednesday
Took ill on Thursday
Got worse on Friday
Died on Saturday
Buried on Sunday
And that was the end
Of Solomon Grundy


About Daily Rhymetime

I am fascinated by children's songs, old and new, from around the world. I run Rhymetime, and am part of Tuning In, and have three children who humour me by listening to all the wonderful tunes I uncover!
