Childhood is a phase of innocence, of deriving fun even out of mundanity. Anything gross and rhyming used to be too much humor for us as children. A nostalgic longing for childhood can very well be invoked by the following silly rhymes!

This one’s a classic for sure! The wordings and the tune make it one memorable rhyme. And to sing it to tease our friends back in childhood was just so much fun!

This one’s got just the rhyme, with no set phrase connotation. Another one of the counting gems, it resonates very well with most 80s and 90s kids.

INKY PINKEY PONKEY, FATHER HAD A DONKEY

The donkey used to change calls, for we replaced it with a friend’s name whom we wanted to bother or get to patch up with us, or worse still, with someone who we had a stupid fight with! And the backlash that followed!

DING DONG BELL, KAUN AAYA HAIN
