Released in 1960, West Indian Folksongs for Children features original compositions by the Trinidadian Calypso singer Lord Invader. Some of the tunes are twists on other classics. For example, "Merrily We Roll Along" has the same melody as "London Bridges Falling Down." But "Ring a Rosy" may not sound quite the same as the version you're used to! The liner notes include the music of each song along with the lyrics. SEE RELATED LESSON PLAN
