GUEST,Sailor Ron Children's Street Songs (179* d) RE: Children's Street Songs 22 Jun 09


My late mother used to sing this as a little girl, she was born in 1910.

Pancack Tuesday's a very happy day
If we don't get a holiday we'll all run away.
Where will you run to?
Down Copp Lane,
Here comes the Master with a big fat cane.

then shouted
Eating pancackes, cracking nuts
Shovelling pancakes down us guts!

Copp Lane was the lane behind the Testimonial School in Fleetwood, the town's oldest school, and in the mid 19C, Shrove tuesday was a school holiday, but not when my mother was a little girl, I don't know how old this ditty is but I'd guess late 19C.   Ron
