Mere Mother Gooseries

I have been singing “Itsy Bitsy Spider” wrong for years. I learned of my error while watching, of all things, MTV.

It does not in fact go like this:

“ The eensie weensie spider went in the water spout
Then came the rain and the spider was washed out
Then came the sun to dry up all the rain
And the eensie weensie spider when in the spout again. ”

Huh. All this time I was singing it wrong. LT Fromage has been trying to tell me that for years, but I couldn’t be sure until it was confirmed by a reliable source. Like Teen Mom.


  1. Was MTV singing it as a rap? I feel a rap with that version!

  2. I need to google so I, too, can learn the proper version!


Do I need to be liked? Absolutely not. I like to be liked. I enjoy being liked. I have to be liked. But it's not like this, compulsive, need, to be liked. Like my need to be praised. - Michael Scott, "The Office"
