Nursery rhymes are great for the little ones of the house! Through songs children get to learn new vocabulary and expressions, and they can also practice a new language in a soothing way.

“On Top Spaguetti” is a classic ballad that tells the story of a poor meatball after falling on the ground due a sneeze. In this lovely English song for kids, a child is eating a yummy plate of spaghetti with cheese when suddenly there was a sneeze, causing the poor meatball to roll down the table, fall down to the floor, and then roll out the house through an open door! After it continues to roll down the garden, the poor little meatball turns to mush, causing a tree to grow there. The thing is that this tree -instead of growing fruits- grows meatballs with sauce!

It’s a funny song to sing as a family to practice your little one, it has a catchy tune with simple lyrics that even the youngest ones in the house can learn to sing.

Check out the lyrics to this nursery rhyme so you can practice it at home with your little ones!

On Top of Spaguetti Lyrics

On top of spaghetti,
All covered with cheese,
I lost my poor meatball,
When somebody sneezed.

It rolled off the table,
And on to the floor,
And then my poor meatball,
Rolled out of the door.

It rolled in the garden,
And under a bush,
And then my poor meatball,
Was nothing but mush.

The mush was as tasty
As tasty could be,
And then the next summer,
It grew into a tree.

The tree was all covered,
All covered with moss,
And on it grew meatballs,
All covered with sauce.

So if you have spaghetti,
All covered with cheese,
Hold on to your meatball,
'cause someone might sneeze.
