The Big Ship Sails

This is one of the most common nursery rhymes. Children used to sing it while they were enjoying themselves with skipping ropes. This is simply because the lyrics to the song usually were good to suit the ritual chants during the whole process. Though its history cannot be traced clearly, it is believed that the term ‘big ship’ was not hypothetical but real. Therefore, it is believed that it came up after the opening of the Manchester Canal in 1894. It should be understood that this Canal is the second longest one after the mighty Panama Canal which is in Central America. The Manchester Ship Canal was built for the mighty ships as during the time, there were no many ships in the place. In fact, there were only 6 ships that were large enough to use it. It is believed that this was the origin of the song.
