I am looking for the full poem that starts with the above line:
"Sunday's Child is Full of Grace"
Monday's child is fair of face,
Tuesday's child is full of grace,
Wednesday's child is full of woe,
Thursday's child has far to go,
Friday's child is loving and giving,
Saturday's child works hard for a living,
And the child that is born on the Sabbath day
Is bonny and blithe and good and gay.
Monday's child is fair in face
Tuesday's child is full of grace
Wednesday's child is full of woe
Thursday's child has far to go
Friday's child is loving and giving and
Saturday's child works hard for his living,
But the child that's born on the Sabbath Day
is loving and giving, good and gay!
No, doesn't sound right with two lots of loving and giving. ilza's version is the one I remember.
Monday's child is red and spotty,
Tuesday's child wont use the potty.
Wednesday's child wont go to bed,
Thursday's child will not be fed.
Friday's child breaks all his toys.
Saturday's child makes an awful noise.
And the child that was born on the seventh day,
Is a pain in the neck like all the rest, OK.

mothers will agree with that version ...
