Move the baby up, down, backwards, forwards and around and around with the lyrics...

Here We Go Up, Up, Up!

Here We Go Up, Up, Up! - Mama Lisa's House of English Nursery Rhymes, Intro Image


Here we go UP, UP, UP!
Here we go DOWN, DOWN, DOWN!
Here we go BACKWARDS and FORWARDS!
Here we go AROUND AND AROUND!

Notes

Harry's Ladder to Learning (1850) has a variation of this rhyme:

Here we go up, up, up,
And here we go down, down, downy,
And here we go backwards and forwards,
And here we go round, round, roundy.

Here's a very similar rhyme:

Up To The Ceiling

Up to the ceiling, down to the ground,
Backward and forward, round and round;
Dance, little baby, and mother will sing,
With the merry chorus, ding, ding, ding!

NOTE: Later I noticed that the verse above comes from Dance, Little Baby, Dance Up High. I find the similarity to be interesting so I'm leaving it here for comparison.

Thanks and Acknowledgements

The first version of Here We Go Up, Up, Up!, Up To The Ceiling and the illustration above come from Boys and Girls Bookshelf; a Practical Plan of Character Building, Volume I (of 17), Fun and Thought for Little Folk (1912).
