Definition

Badly reproduced from the nursery rhyme "Ring a Ring o' Roses". Usually recited by school children who join hands in a circle, then run around and fall own at the end. No one believes it's actually English.

Usage

Loud kids: Ringaa ringaa roses,
Pocket full of roses,
Hushaa, bushaa,
All fall DOWN!

Stuck up kid: That's not how it goes, it's
'Ring-a-ring o' roses,
A pocket full of posies,
A-tishoo! A-tishoo!
We all fall down.'

Loud kids: Chup angrez gandu.

OMG, I can TOTALLY relate to the poor 'Angrezi Gandu' :P... only, last week I got told off by a bunch of 6 year olds for kindly correcting their version of this Black Death era rhyme ...
