Ride A Cock Horse


Children will love to sing and dance
along with this fun kid’s nursery rhyme song!

Lyrics

Ride a cock-horse
to Banbury Cross,
to see a fine lady upon
a white horse.

Rings on her fingers
and bells on her toes.
She shall have music
wherever she goes!
Say: “Everybody sing along with me!”
Repeat
