it said that this the meaning:

\"Ring a Ring O' Roses\" is said to be a macabre parody on the horrors of the Great Plague. One of the first signs of the plague was a ring of rose-coloured spots, and the protection against this terrible disease was, in popular belief, a posy of herbs. Sneezing was taken as a sure sign that you were about to die of it, and the last line \"We all fall down\" omits the word, \"dead\"!

but its not been told to be a myth and it repersents something else and i cant remember what ..... i think these a article at college about all different nursery songs and their means but i cant remember all the songs it says about. will have a look and let u no next time am in if u want :)

Believed to refer to Richard,Duke of York in 1460s who had claim to the throne..
He had a castle..Sandal..which was built on a fortress approx 40 feet above moat level..During Battle of Wakefield He took up a defensive position in the castle...So he marched his troops up the hill inside the castle...Afterwards..marched them out and down xxxx;)
