Generally, two different rhymes are in different posts on this blog. However, this post is an exception. I wanted to post only itsy bitsy spider. But then, could not find a hand gestures video (the way I do it) – which has only this rhyme. It was clubbed with Where is Thumbkin?. So, here go both the rhymes:

Here are the lyrics for Where is Thumbkin?:

Where is thumbkin?
Where is thumbkin?
Here I am (Bring right hand out from behind back with thumb)
Here I am (Bring left hand out from behind back with thumb)
How are you today, sir? (Move right thumb as if talking)
Very fine, I say sir (Move left thumb as if responding.)
Run away (Take right hand beind your back)
Run away (Take left hand beind your back)

Where is pointer?
Where is pointer? (Hands behind back)
Here I am (Bring right hand out from behind back with index finger)
Here I am (Bring left hand out from behind back with index finger)
How are you today, sir? (Move right index finder as if talking)
Very fine, I say sir (Move left index finger as if responding.)
Run away (Take right hand beind your back)
Run away (Take left hand beind your back)

Where is tallman?

Now, the lyrics for the more popular Itsy bitsy spider:
Itsy bitsy spider, went up the water sprout
Down came the rain, and washed the spider out.
Out came the sun, and dried up all the rain
And itsy bitsy spider went up the sprout again.

सात समुन्दर पार से – The complete song

I thought, this was a rhyme my mom sang for me, until I found out it is actually a lovely song from the movie Taqdeer. Not sure if the song was based on the rhyme or the rhyme based on the song. Anyway, here goes:

Here are the lyrics in Hindi:
सात समुन्दर पार से गुडियों के बाजार से
अच्छी सी गुडिया लाना
गुडिया चाहे ना लाना , पप्पा जल्दी आ जाना

तुम परदेस गए जब से, बस यह हाल हुवा तब से
दिल दीवाना लगता है, घर वीराना लगता है
झिलमिल चाँद सितारों ने, दरवाजो दीवारों ने
सबने पूछा है हम से, (कब जी छूटेगा ग़म से -2)
कब होगा उनका आना, पप्पा जल्दी आजाना

माँ भी लोरी नहीं गाती, हमको नींद नहीं आती
खेल खिलौने टूट गए, संगी साथी छूट गए
जीब हमारी खाली है, और बसी दीवाली है
हम सबको ना तड़पाओ, (अपने घर वापस आओ -2)
और कभी फिर ना जाना, पप्पा जल्दी आजाना

ख़त ना समझो तार है यह, कागज़ नहीं है प्यार है यह
दूरी और इतनी दूरी, ऐसी भी क्या मजबूरी
तुम कोई नादान नहीं, तुम इससे अनजान नहीं
इस जीवन के सपने हो, (एक तुम्ही तो अपने हो -2)
सारा जग है बेगाना, पप्पा जल्दी आजाना

Here are the lyrics in English:
saat samundar paar se gudiyo ke bajaar se
achhee see gudiya laana
gudiya chaahe na laana, pappa jaldee aa jaana

tum pardes gaye jab se, bas yeh haal huwa tab se
dil divaana lagata hai, ghar viraana lagata hai
jhilmil chaand sitaaro ne, darwaajo divaaro ne
sabne puchha hai ham se, (kab jee chhutega gham se -2)
kab hoga unaka aana, pappa jaldee aa jaana

ma bhee loree nahee gaatee, hamko nind nahee aatee
khel khilaune tut gaye, sangee saathee chhut gaye
jeb hamaaree khaalee hai, aur basee deewali hai
ham sabko na tadpaao, (apne ghar wapas aao -2)
aur kabhee phir na jaana, pappa jaldee aa jaana

khat na samjho taar hai yeh, kaagaj nahee hai pyaar hai yeh
duree aur itanee duree, aisee bhee kya majburee
tum koyee naadan nahee, tum isase anjaan nahee
iss jivan ke sapane ho, (ek tumhee toh apane ho -2)
saara jag hai begaana pappa jaldee aa jaana
