This old nursery rhyme according to Peter and Iona Opie, was a children’s race starting rhyme. Sometimes I use it to walk in a circle with the children. Then we ‘go the other way’ at the end it is ‘time to go away’ or ‘time to put away’. We modulated the melody up a half tone for fun, but it is much easier to stay in one key.

Lyrics

Bell horses bell horses what's the time of day?
One o'clock, two o’clock, time to go away.
Bell horses bell horses what's the time of day?
Three o'clock, four o’clock, time to go away.
Bell horses bell horses what's the time of day?
Five o'clock, six o’clock, time to go away.
Bell horses bell horses what's the time of day?
Seven o'clock, eight o’clock, time to go away.
Bell horses bell horses what's the time of day?
Nine o'clock, ten o’clock, time to go away.
