About This Quiz

Nursery rhymes are poems and songs sung by children around the world. Some of them are recited for fun, while others help children learn their numbers, specific words and/or how to rhyme. Created in the late 18th century, they used to be known as Mother Goose rhymes, but are now universally referred to as nursery rhymes. 

They are thought to have stemmed from lullabies, and one of the first and still very popular today is "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star." From there, the likes of "Goosey Goosey Gander," "The Grand Old Duke of York," "Jack and Jill" and "Little Boy Blue" have risen in popularity, and today, there are well over 100 that are sung by children every day. But do you remember how they go? More specifically, do you remember the lines they end with?

And we're not talking about the shortened versions. We want the last line of the nursery rhyme in its entirety. Not many people can remember these fun songs, but we know you can prove to us that you're one of the few who does. So take this quiz, complete these nursery rhymes and show everyone you're in the 9%.
