Nursery Rhyme


Verse
Once upon a time
mama told me a nursery rhyme
and the rhyme was so enchantin'
that my thoughts were dancin'


Chorus
and the cow jumped over the moon
and the old woman in a shoe adopted little boy blue
that was a time when all I needed was a nursery rhyme


Verse
butcher baker candle maker
jack was quick but jill was safer
they put food back in the cupboard
curds and whey for mother hubbard


Chorus
and they called, yeah they called on little bo peep
with a plum from jackie's thumb they found her sheep
that was a time when all I needed was a nursery rhyme


Verse
When a long day has me yearnin'
I close my eyes and I'm returnin'
to where each story came alive
and in my heart they all survived


Chorus
and I lived, we all lived inside those pages
and innocence was proven ageless
that was a time when all I needed was a nursery rhyme


Once upon a time
mama told me a nursery rhyme


I like the instant impact of the song. Bringing in the chorus early works really well. High quality instrumentation. A wonderfully, engaging vocal. Nice use of backing vocals. A very catchy melody. An original lyric idea. Lovely production and arrangement.

nice mid tempo folk/country track. very well produced. the lead singers vocals are great with such a lovely and high quality sound to her voice. the vocals make this track, nice backing music and interesting lyrical theme on this track,
i enjoyed it , class recording.
