Elmo imagines playing Ring Around the Rosie with a bunch of Elmos.

"Ring Around the Rosie" is a nursery rhyme or folk song that first appeared in print in 1881. The verses change, depending on the location where the song or poem is learned. It is a common misconception that the rhyme dates back to the Great Plague of London, but most folklore scholars regard the theory as baseless. The song has also been incorporated into a schoolyard game, with the end result having everyone fall down.
