You need to hear Joan from Wigan sing this, she is SUPERB..!!!

Little Willie, from his mirror,
licked the Mercury right off
Thinking in his childish error
it would cure the Whooping Cough
at the Funeral his mother
Brightly said to Mrs Brown
" twas a chilly day for Willie
when the Mercury went down!!!

also
Billy, in one of his bright new sashes
fell in the fire and was burned to ashes
and now, altho' the room grows chilly
I havent the Heart to poke poor Billy
