Saturday’s Bob

Dedicated to all the Bob’s I have the pleasure of watching out my windows.  As a convince to me & to make sure no one get’s their feelings hurt all my animals are named BOB!

The lyrics of Saturdays Bob poem were used to assist a child in learning the order and names of the different days of week. The name of the poem is seldom remembered, it is in fact Mondays Bob, but as adults we just have vague recollections that such a poem about the attributes of people born on different days actually exists we tend to want to know the qualities of those born on a specific day like Saturdays Bob. Sunday was traditionally referred to as the 'Sabbath day' in the religion of Christianity so there is not a specific Sunday’s Bob! 

Monday’s Bob is fair of face,
Tuesday’s Bob is full of grace,
Wednesday’s Bob child is full of woe,
Thursday’s Bob has far to go,
Friday’s Bob is loving and giving,
Saturday’s Bob works hard for his living,
And the Bob that is born on the Sabbath day
Is bonny and blithe, and good and gay.
