Skinny Malinky Long-Legs, Vrot Banana Feet II

Since my last post on the topic, I've remembered more playground chants. (And Muriel reminded me, in her comment, about the Sixties and Seventies craze for autograph books. Hands up who had an autograph book! And what about dingbats, yoyos, ka-nockers and moon rocks? And what were those fluffy toys with long hair - Glooks? Gloops? )

Here are some fragments of skipping rhymes that came to me overnight. Anyone remember the words?

When Susie was a baby, a baby Susy was....

My boyfriend gave me an apple, my boyfriend gave me a pear
My boyfriend gave me kiss so I threw him down the stairs
....I threw him over England, I threw him over France...

..Mother's in the kitchen, cooking fish and chips..

Miss Mary Mack, Mack, Mack
All dressed in black, black, black

Very popular songs when my kids were in primary school included:

Jingle Bells
Batman smells
Robin laid an egg
He made a poep
Behind the stoep
and blew up the USA

I believe I can fly
I got caught by the FBI
All I wanted was some chicken wings
But they kicked me in my dingaling

The Addams Family started
When Uncle Fester farted
He farted through the keyhole and paralysed the cat
The cat got all excited
And shouted 'MAN UNITED!'
And Man United shouted,
'The Addams Family!'

Stumble Upon Toolbar
