Its pretty clean here. Even the dirt is clean. Although i lived in canberra for a while last year and there were rats. Rats everywhere. I never saw so many rats in australia before. They were the white kind. My sisters kats were always catching and eating them. Not like the rats in saigon that the kats ran away from.

Ring-a-ring o' roses,
A pocket full of posies,
A-tishoo! A-tishoo!

This poem was thought (incorrectly in my opinion) to have its seeds in the Black Death era and was said to have described symptoms of the disease:

The symptoms of the disease included a rosy red rash in the shape of a ring.
Pockets were filled with sweet smelling herbs (posies) in the belief that the disease was transmitted by bad smells.
And sneezing (A-tishoo!) was another sympton.

not quite a 'song', more of a story, but songs in the true sense are probably not far away..

The plague can be treated with antibiotics now

I dont know how you will treat a rat though
