Cut Your Nails on Monday...

Cut Your Nails on Monday... - Mama Lisa's House of English Nursery Rhymes, Intro Image


Cut them on Monday, you cut them for health;
Cut them on Tuesday, you cut them for wealth;
Cut them on Wednesday, you cut them for news;
Cut them on Thursday, a pair of new shoes;
Cut them on Friday, you cut them for sorrow;
Cut them on Saturday, you 'll see your true-love to-morrow;
Cut them on Sunday, and you will have ill fortune all through the week.

Notes

Here's another version from The Home Book of Verse, Vol. 1 (of 4) edited by Burton Egbert Stevenson (1912):

Cut Your Nails on Monday, Cut Them for News

Cut your nails on Monday, cut them for news;
Cut them on Tuesday, a pair of new shoes;
Cut them on Wednesday, cut them for health;
Cut them on Thursday, cut them for wealth;
Cut them on Friday, cut them for woe;
Cut them on Saturday, a journey you'll go;
Cut them on Sunday, you'll cut them for evil,
For all the next week you'll be ruled by the devil.
