Survival instruction nursery rhyme

Jamie made the following comment to my last post:

I really like the idea of making up nursery rhymes that carry survival instructions. Those kinds of things will stick in a kids brain and they’ll know what to do in certain situations without knowing how they know. If the apocalypse hits, I’ll be sending any future children to whatever school you’ll be running!

This, of course, had me thinking: what kind of nursery rhyme would a set of survival instructions make? I’m sure if I did a search I’d find something, but I decided to create one instead. And of course, I’m going to share it with all of you.

Ready? Here goes.

Char’s survival instruction nursery rhyme:

Zombies are Climbing (to the tune of London Bridge)

The zombies are climbing over the walls
Over the walls, over the walls
The zombies are climbing over the walls
And they want to eat my brain

They might look like Mom and dad
Mom and dad, mom and dad
They might look like mom and dad
But they want to eat my brain

Take my shot and aim for the head
Aim for the head, aim for the head
Take my shot and aim for the head
‘Cause they want to eat my brain

Grab some supplies and run like hell
Run like hell, run like hell
Grab some supplies and run like hell
How they want to eat my brain

Meet the group at the burned out car
Burned out car, burned out car
Meet the group at the burned out car
Zombies, they want to eat my brain

If no one’s there then they’re all dead
They’re all dead, they’re all dead
If no one’s there then they’re all dead
Now they want to eat my brain

So? What do you guys think? Good? Bad? Ugly? Leave your thoughts in the comments!

  1. I like it. We should think of lots of them and teach them to any children we come across.

    This is my contribution.
    (to Three Blind Mice)
    World of ash
    World of ash
    Scavenge for food
    Scavenge for food
    Crumbling buildings are dangerous
    They fall on you with a crash and bang
    in our world of ash.

  2. Awesome! I really like the rhymes; these could definitely work to give some post apocalyptic advice. Here’s my addition (to Little Jack Horner/Little Miss Muffet/Little Bo Peep)

    Red dawn is dawning,
    Alarm bells are warning,
    Shufflers have breached the gate.
    Take of their heads,
    Or bash them instead,
    Or you will then suffer their fate.

  3. A little late, but I thought of these:

    Ring a ring o’ roses
    The house is full of zombies
    Shoot their heads, shoot their heads
    They all fall down

    3 blind zombs, 3 blind zombs
    See how they run, see how they run
    They all run after your Mom and Dad
    Who cut off their heads with a knife they had
    3 dead zombs, 3 dead zombs
