    itsy bitsy spider


    If someone asked you to recite a poem or a prose in itsy-bitsy spider, what could he/she mean?

    I know the nursery rhyme but just couldn't put my finger on the sense of the phrase.

    thank you

    You would recite it in nursery sing-song fashion, accompanied by finger/hand movements. Think of the 10 fingers making a creepy-crawling motion that a parent would use whilst half-singing the words to Itsy-Bitsy Spider, and you'll get the sense.
