(Folk song / Nursery rhyme)

Jack and Jill went up the hill
To fetch a pail of water (thumbs straight up, alternating upward)
Jack fell down and broke his crown (wiggle thumb and wrist down)
And Jill came tumbling after (wiggle other thumb)

Then up got Jack and said to Jill (bring one thumb up, then other)
As in his arms he took her (cross thumbs)
“Brush off that dirt for you’re not hurt, (brush one thumb with other thumb)
Let’s fetch that pail of water.” (continue brushing)

So Jack and Jill went up the hill
To fetch the pail of water (thumbs up again)
And took it home to Mother dear (bring thumbs slowly down together)
Who thanked her son and daughter (thumbs meet)
