Thread Name: I have lost my underwear & other underwear songs
Subject: RE: I have lost my underwear
I found these two rhymes on THIS wonderful thread of children's rhymes:

"Here are some of my memories from summer camp which I didn't see here:

Oh I wear my pink pajamas
In the summer when it's hot
And I wear my flannel nightie
In the winter when it's not
And sometimes in the spring
And sometimes in the fall
I jump between the sheets
With nothing on at all

Glory, glory what a wonderful way to sleep
Glory, glory what a wonderful way to sleep
Glory, glory what a wonderful way to sleep
With nothing on at all

and, to the tune of "God Bless America":

God bless my underwear
My only pair
Stand beside them
And guide them
Through the wear and the tear of the wash
From the washer
To the dryer
To the clothesline
In the air
God bless my underwear
My only pair

Kind of tame compared to Miss Susie, but apparently of some historical interest. One I never thought I'd forget but seem to have done just that is that school song to the tune of the Battle Hymn of the Republic; can't remember if it was celebrating the last day of school or promoting arson or something even more malevolent.

Oh well; sometimes senior moments suck donkey droppings."
