What is your favourite rhyme?

Some of you might find this topic ridiculous ,but it just came to my mind and I thought I might ask. All of us have read and even recited rhymes in our childhood and maybe even delivered them in front of an audience.Some rhymes have amusing characters whereas choice of words in some others made them catchy and memorable for people of age groups.Some rhymes have deep underlying messages too.As an adult we might have came across those rhymes while teaching some child or even while spending time with them. So my favourite one is Little Miss muffet . You tell yours now.

@Sojourn When you have a child sitting on your knees and the child is facing you, you move your knees up and down and say, "Hopp, hopp, hopp, Pferdchen lauf Galopp. Über Stock und über Steine, aber brich dir nicht die Beine. Hopp, hopp, hopp, hopp, hopp, Pferdchen lauf Galopp.“

Little Miss Muffet sat on her tuffet, eating her curds and whey! Jack be nimble, Jack be quick, Jack jumped over the candle stick! Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall, Humpty Dumpty had a great fall! Jack& Jill went up the hill, to fetch a pail of water.

We used to play London Bridge is falling down. Two people held hands to form a sort of bridge while everyone sang London Bridge is Falling Down. The rest walked under the bridge one at a time and sometimes the bridge would fall down and capture someone. Then everyone would sing take a key and lock him/her up, my fair lady or my fair young man. It was stupid but fun.
