The rhyme was first recorded by James Orchard Halliwell as an English children's game in the midth century. The bramble bush may be an earlier version, possibly changed because of the difficulty of the alliteration, since mulberries do not grow on bushes. Halliwell said subsequent verses included: "This is the way we wash our clothes", "This is the way we dry our clothes", "This is the way we mend our shoes", "This is the way the gentlemen walk" and "This is the way the ladies walk.
The song and associated game is traditional, and has parallels in Scandinavia and in the Netherlands the bush is a juniper in Scandinavia. Local historian R.

A sprig was taken from Hatfeild Hall Normanton Golf Club in Stanley , Wakefield, and grew into a fully mature mulberry tree around which prisoners exercised in the moonlight. The mulberry tree died during and was cut down and removed on 7 May Cuttings were taken during the s and have grown into mature trees.
Further cuttings taken from these trees will be replanted at HMP Wakefield to replace the mulberry tree.

Another possible interpretation of the rhyme is that it references Britain's struggles to produce silk, mulberry trees being a key habitat for the cultivation of silkworms. As Bill Bryson explains, Britain in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries tried to emulate the success of the Chinese in silk production but the industry was held back by periodic harsh winters and mulberry trees proved too sensitive to frost to thrive.
The simple game involves holding hands in a circle and moving around to the first verse, which is alternated with the specific verse, where the players break up to imitate various appropriate actions. A variant of this rhyme is " Nuts in May ", sharing the tune as well as the traditional closing line "On a cold and frosty morning".
