Jack Be Nimble Video

Jack be nimble, jack be quick, jack jump over the candlestick.

We’re told that the Jack in Jack Be Nimble was originally Jack Black – the famous pirate.

There’s no scary pirates in our version, our Jack is more of the ‘beanstalk’ variety.

We did face two challenges with this rhyme though.

The first was a concern about safety; we didn’t want to give your child the idea that jumping over candlesticks with lighted candles is something they should be doing.

Kids and fire are never a good mix!

The second challenge is that in the original, there’s really only one verse which makes the song a bit, well, boring.

We’ve addressed both these issues.

Our Jack jumps over candlesticks which don’t actually contain candles. They are still very pretty and traditional looking though.

To make the video less boring we came up with some of new verses.

You can see some stills from the video below but to follow Jack on his adventure please watch the full video on YouTube.

Please Thumbs up, subscribe and comment as it really helps us and gives us the fuel to create more videos for you and your child

Jack Be Nimble Lyrics Lyrics

Jack be nimble,
Jack be quick,
Jack jump over the candle stick.
 
Jack be nimble,
Jack have fun,
Jack jump over the hot cross bun.
 
Jack be nimble,
Jack be nice,
Jack jump over the three blind mice.
 
Jack be nimble,
Jack be quick,
Jack jump over the candle stick.
  
Jack be nimble,
Jack be quick,
Jack jump over the candle stick.
 
Jack be nimble,
Jack don’t sleep,
Jack jump over Little Bo Beep.
 
Jack be nimble,
Jack jump far,
Jack jump over the twinkling star.
 
Jack be nimble,
Jack be quick,
Jack jump over the candle stick.
