Thread Name: Back of Bus Songs
Subject: RE: Back of Bus Songs
This one has come down through the family..
When I was young I went to school to learn my ABC
I stepped upon a nanny goat trap and saw the open sea
A chinese man came up to me and said I was a spy
And if I didnt sing a song he'd punch me in the eye
So in the eye he punched me and I began to cry
While I was crying I was standing on my head
Singing esa esa rumba, a fish came up to me
I love the fishies and the fishies love me
He chopped me up with a knife and fork
And put me on a cabbage stalk
I grew so fat I couldnt walk
I had to join the army.
The captain there was a very nice man who had two black eyes
and he played on his whiskers do the cha cha boys
do the cha cha boys, do the cha cha boys
He played on his whiskers do the cha cha boys......

Does anyone else know this one.. we used to sing in on trips in the car and we teach it to our new generations... why, Im not sure... lol
