Thread Name: Not Last Night But The Night Before-rhyme
Subject: RE: Not Last Night But The Night Before-rhyme
The rhyme is one of the 38 verses I have for the song, chorus of which is
"Early [earleye] in the morning [x3]
Before the break of day."
37 are rude! I'm sure there are loads more.

Many of the versions of the tomcats were playground clapping / skipping games I heard in the playground of my primary school between 1958 and 1964 in Ashton-on-Mersey, Sale, Cheshire.
