Subject: RE: Nasty Nursery Rhymes
My brother Billy had ten foot Willy
and he showd it to the girl next door
She thought it was a snake and she hit it with a rake
and now it's only five foot four.

Jack and Jill went up the hill
to fetch a pail of water
Jill came down with half a crown
but not for carrying water.

Mary had a little lamb
She also had a duck
She put them on the mantlepiece
To see if they'd fall off.
( Never understood that last one - it doesn't rhyme;-) )

One-two-three alera
I saw my sister Sarah
Sitting on her bum-delera
Eating chocolate biscuts.

Anna-Maria peed on the fire
The fire was too hot so she peed on the pot
The pot was too round so she peed on the ground
The ground was too flat so she peed on the cat
and the cat ran away with pee on it's back.

Eeeeeh - good old days. Those were genuine Salford 1950/60's. I know others but I think I know them bu 'osmosis' from Oldham tinkers albums! I'll see what else I can dredge up. One I can remember the start of was Nebukanezer the king of the Jews, bought his wife a pair of shoes but it stops there! I remember my sister skipping to it.

Cheers
