Oh, Mr. Sun, Sun, Mr. Golden Sun,
Please shine down on me.
Oh Mr. Sun, Sun, Mr. Golden Sun,
Hiding behind a tree
These little children are asking you
To please come out so we can play with you.
Oh Mr. Sun, Sun, Mr. Golden Sun,
Please shine down on,
please shine down on,
Please shine down on me.

(Start with hands behind back)
Where is thumbkin?
Where is thumbkin?
Here I am
(Bring right hand to front, with thumb up)
Here I am.
(Bring left hand to front, with thumb up)
How are you this morning?
Very well, I thank you.
(Wiggle thumbs as if they’re ‘talking’ to each other)
Run away
(Hide right hand behind back)
Run away.
(Hide left hand behind back)

I recall this song ending with the line:

Run away. Run and play.

Check out this video found on YouTube with Cullen. She is so cool.

On another web site, Sponder Works, I see that there are other verses. I think I knew the pointer one but the others are new to me.

Where is thumbkin, where is thumkin?
Here I am, here I am
How are you today sir?
Very well I thank you
Run away, run away

Where is pointer, where is pointer?
Here I am, here I am
How are you today sir?
Very well I thank you
Run away, run away

Where is tall man, where is tall man?
Here I am, here I am
How are you today sir?
Very well I thank you
Run away, run away

Where is ring man, where is ring man?
Here I am, here I am
How are you today sir?
Very well I thank you
Run away, run away

Where is pinky, where is pinky?
Here I am, here I am
How are you today sir?
Very well I thank you
Run away, run away

Where’s whole family, where’s whole family?
Here we are, here we are
How are you today?
Very well we thank you
Run away, run away

Sponder Works has another version to that goes:

Oh, where is thumbkin, where is thumbkin, where could thumbkin be?
Oh, here I am, oh here I am as you can plainly see
How are you today?
Very well I thank you
Run, run away

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall
All the kind’s horses and
All the king’s men
Couldn’t put Humpty together again

Row, row, row your boat,
Gently down the stream.
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily,
Life is but a dream.

Here is a great other verse.

Row, row, row your boat
Gently down the stream
If you see a crocodile
Don’t forget to scream!

All around the mulberry bush
(or cobbler’s bench)
The monkey chased the weasel;
The monkey thought ’twas all in fun,
(or ’twas all in good sport)
Pop! goes the weasel.

A penny for a spool of thread,
A penny for a needle—
That’s the way the money goes,
Pop! goes the weasel.

For me, it was “mulberry bush” and “’twas all in fun”. I don’t recall ever hearing the penny part of this.

I learned this one somewhere… although I don’t recall where. But I can sing it nearly word per word by heart.

Rain rain
go away,
Come again
some other day.

Here is another version from Lantern Tree.

Rain rain go away,
Come again another day.
Little Johnny wants to play;
Rain, rain, go to Spain,
Never show your face again!
