British Vs. American Nursery Rhymes: Ring-a-ring O' Roses

British Version
Ring-a-ring o' roses,
A pocket full of posies,
A-tishoo! A-tishoo!
We all fall down.

American Version
Ring-a-round the rosie,
A pocket full of posies,
Ashes! Ashes!
We all fall down.

This is about the plague. Which never happened in America. Britain wins for making something hideous into a song for kids

It comes to something when Britain wins because it had the plague.
