Baby CPR song by Nursery Rhymes Inc – first aid advice - St John Ambulance

Baby CPR song by Nursery Rhymes Inc – first aid advice - St John Ambulance

St. John Ambulance is a video created by Becky Sloan and Joe Pelling. This video was created commercially for St. John Ambulance to help raise awareness about baby CPR. The video was released on January 19, 2016, by the St John Ambulance YouTube channel.


The video starts out with a group of nursery rhyme characters at Nursery Rhymes Inc. having a board meeting, trying to come up with a rhyme for the word "ambulance." They are writing a new song explaining what to do if a baby sops breathing. Humpty Dumpty says that he's starting to lose his rhyming powers. Jack and Jill exclaim that they must make the song rhyme, so that "when a baby stops breathing it's remembered in time." It takes them all day and all night, and Incy Wincy Spider is about to give up when Humpty Dumpty finally comes up with a good idea and orders someone to hand him a guitar quickly. It then shows Humpty Dumpty up a brick wall, with a guitar in his hands, singing the beginning of the CPR song. Jack and Jill also join him, as well as Incy Wincy,and the Cat and the Fiddle. During the song, they give people basic instructions on how to perform CPR for babies.

The gang celebrates how they finally made the song rhyme while Humpty Dumpty says that he needs a vacation. It finally cuts to a green chalkboard that says "Remember this song in case things go wrong" with the St John Ambulance logo below it.


(The characters are all sitting around the table as the intro to "Pop Goes the Weasel plays)"

Incy Wincy: Ambulance... Trambulance... Slambulance... Flambulance....

Humpty Dumpty: We've been here for fifteen hours! I'm starting to lose my rhyming powers.

Jack: But it's baby CPR!

Jill: We must make it rhyme.

Jack: So when a baby stops breathing...

Jack & Jill: It's remembered in time!

Fiddle: Yes, we'll find a way. We just need to say "Call an ambulance. Give five puffs over the mouth and nose and 30 pumps to the chest. Then keep repeating two puffs and 30 pumps until the ambulance comes." Crumbs!

Incy Wincy: Well, if we can rhyme Muffet with tuffet, we can rhyme ambulance with... with...

Humpty Dumpty: NOTHING! It rhymes with NOTHING! (falls out of his chair)

Jack & Jill: Don't be absurd! Ambulance rhymes with billions of words.

(The scene cuts to the next morning. There are lots of crumpled papers and everyone is asleep apart from Incy Wincy)

Incy Wincy: Ambulance... samba dance... Samba dance? Ambulance? Bambi stance?

Humpty Dumpty: Hold on a tick! Someone pass me that guitar quick!

(The scene cuts to Humpty Dumpty sitting on top of a brick wall playing the guitar and singing)

Humpty Dumpty: Baby CPR is crucial to know

There's a few simple steps, so here we go...

Jack: Get to a phone!

Jill: Don't take a chance!

Jack: First you should call...

Jack and Jill: An ambulaaaaaaance!

(Humpty looks unimpressed)

Fiddle: But while you wait for the ambulance to arrive, here are some tips to help your baby survive.

Incy Wincy: Place your baby on a nice flat surface

And tilt their head back, don't be nurface. Nervous... Oh.

Humpty Dumpty: Give five puffs over the mouth and nose

Not sure what we mean? Well here's how it goes

Jack and Jill: One puffs two puffs three puffs and 4!

Five is enough so don't puff anymore!

Cat: Place two fingers upon the chest and pump 30 times, no more no less!

Everyone: Puff, puff and 30 more pumps

Repeat this until the ambulance comes

Puff, puff and 30 more pumps

Repeat this until the ambulance comes!

(Song ends)

Jack & Jill: Gosh that was fun!

Fiddle: And full of information

Incy Wincy: Our work here is done.

Humpty Dumpty: Wow ! I need a vacation!
