GUEST,Barrie Roberts Children's Street Songs (179* d) RE: Children's Street Songs 26 Mar 05


John's Glasgow verse from the War reminds me of one we sang in Hampshire in the 1940s. It went to the tune of 'My Old Man's A Dustman';

My old man's a dustman,
He wears a dustman's hat,
He shot down twenty Jerries,
Now what do you think of that?
One fell here, one fell there,
One fell round the corner,
One poor soul with a bullet up his hole
Kept crying out for water.
Water, water, water, water came at last,
I don't want your water so stick it up your arse.

I love these old traditional ballads of peace and brotherhood!
