Monday's Child

Song Video


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 must work for a living,
But the child that's born on the Sabbath day
Is fair and wise and good and gay.

Information About Monday's Child

The song "Monday's Child" is also known as "A Week of Birthdays. " The song's origin is uncertain; however the first record dates back to 1838 in A. E Bray's Traditions of Devonshire, and by the mid 19th century the song had been collected by James Orchard Halliwell.

The song attempts to predict a child's future or character based on the day of the week the child was born; these characteristics attributed to each day have changed over time.
