oh please, don't think i'm trying to attack the song... it's just i stumbled across all the truth behind these things and was shocked... and then i looked back at the song like "what do you have to say for yourself?"...
all it did was bang its head :D

Sorry for leaving two comments that are essentially the same thing. I thought that the first one did not get posted so's I wrote another version, then when I posted it, the first one miraculously appeared. Whoopsy.

The lyrics are based on what JD thought the meanings to the rhymes are. It was not as easy to reaserch things as easy as we can now back then when the lyrics were written.
I personnaly thought that Ring Around the Rosies was about the plague until I saw your research and investigated it for myself, and I'm sure that JD thought so too, because I have heard him say it in interviews and what not. So, whether or not JD's lyrics are accurate to what the rhyme's "Meanings" are, the song still means what it means because that's what JD wanted it to mean. QED.

I'm pretty sure that JD thought at the time that he thought that the lyrics had an especially dark connitation. Perhaps he did not know the "meaning" these nursery rhymes like you do. Remember that there wasn't really an internet where one could just go reserch things as easily as we can now. I personally thought that Ring Around the Rosies was about the plague until you pointed out that it may not be. And I'm pretty sure that JD did, too, because I have seen and heard him say it in a few interviews. So, whether or not the Rhymes "mean" what you think they do, that does not matter because JD wrote the lyrics and he felt they had dark meanings. QED.

I think people should just get what they get out of a song. If they think it means something, then that's what they think. Jon even said in a 1995 interview that the reason he doesn't include lyrics in the CD booklet is because he wants the listener to find their own meaning. That's too much research for one song anyways.

Meh - I don't think they knew at the time. Although it doesn't make the intentions less sinister.
