Sing Along

Let's sing the traditional version of "Three Blind Mice"


Three blind mice. Three blind mice.

See how they run. See how they run.

They all ran after the farmer's wife,

Who cut off their tails with a carving knife,

Did you ever see such a sight in your life,

As three blind mice?


Let's Listen!

Here is a new, contemporary version of Three Blind Mice.

When we're listening, let's think about:

  • How is it different from the traditional version?
  • What instruments can you hear?

In Groups!

Write down some of the instruments you think you can hear in the new version (listen to the track as many times as required).


Find The Instruments!

Each group select one instrument from your list.

We'll play the track, put your hands up when you can hear your instrument.


The Instruments

Listen to some of the clips and see if you can tell which instruments/groups of instruments they are.

  • Drums
  • Bass
  • Grand Piano
  • Electric piano (called a Rhodes Piano)
  • Violins (some playing harmonics)
  • Cellos and Double Bass

All Together

Here are all the instruments played together.
