Mondays Child

Monday's Child is fair of face.
Tuesday's child is full of grace.
Wednesday's child is full of woe.
Thursday's child has far to go.
Friday's child is loving and giving.
Saturday's child works hard for a living,
But the child who is born on the Sabbath Day
Is bonny and blithe and good and gay.






History:

A number of recent versions alter the previous row to, Is bonny and blithe and good in every way. Due to current connotations of the expression gay. In addition, as being 'full of woe' is not a pleasant destiny for any Wednesday born youngster, the poem is now and then altered to read "Wednesday's child will fear no foe." Monday's Child is one of a lot of fortune-telling songs, well-liked as nursery school rhymes for kids. It is supposed to inform a child's nature or prospect based on the day they were born. As with all nursery school rhymes, there are a lot of versions.
