Nursery Rhymes With a Twist

Flashback to 1980...where bizarre combinations were all the rage. Let me introduce you to the tiny booklet: My Jesus pocketbook of Nursery Rhymes.

This small treasure includes all kinds of adapted nursery rhymes, but I have just the two best to share with you. The first, Little Miss Muffet, is kind of sweet, really.

Little Miss Muffet
Sat on a tuffet
Eating her curds and whey.
She's afraid of a spider,
She needs Jesus inside her
To take all fear away.

Aww. Right? The next, however, is a little funnier.

Wee Willie Winkie
runs through the town,
Upstairs, downstairs
in his nightgown;
What does he see?
The children don't have
time for Jesus;
They're watching TV.

Ouch! Strong feelings, anyone?

  1. That's hilarious, like the New England primer.

  2. Very funny...and strange. But...I probably would have bought it had I known about it. Yet reading it now sounds corny.
