Subject: RE: Children's Street Songs

I only ever knew the first verse of that Barney one. We did used to sing songs while we threw a ball against the wall "Upsy Mother Brown" and "1,2,3, O'Leary" spring to mind.

there is a good book full of that stuff called "Keep the kettle boiling - rhymes from a Belfast childhood."
