7. Solomon Grundy

One Two Buckle My Shoe

Lyrics: Solomon Grundy

Solomon Grundy,
Born on a Monday,
Christened on Tuesday,
Married on Wednesday,
Took ill on Thursday,
Worse on Friday,
Died on Saturday,
Buried on Sunday.
This is the end
Of Solomon Grundy.

The nursery rhyme is the inspiration for the DC Comics character Cyrus Gold/Solomon Grundy, a large, strong zombie supervillain created in 1944 as an adversary for the Green Lantern, though later a common foe of Batman and Superman.

In 1964, Jamaican singer Eric “Monty” Morris released the ska song “Solomon Gundie” whose lyrics were based on the nursery rhyme.
