Thread Name: Children's Street Songs
Subject: RE: Children's Street Songs
One common when I was a youth in the Glasgow area in the years after the war,
Holy Moses I am dying
Just one wish before I go
If you see a German soldier
Stick a bayonet up his hole

to the tune of What a Friend we have in Jesus.
There were a lot of anti German songs around for quite a long time following the last world war. Not very PC or relevant these days of course, but historically interesting.
