When I was a wee bairn in the Sixties there were little ditties everywhere. I struggle to recall them now but here's a few lines from each:
Yellow belly custard, snot nose pie
all mixed up in a dead dogs eye.....
Some new laid eggs, a dozen pegs
and half a pound of jam....
Jingle bells, Batman smells.....
Anyone remember them?
I do remember the playground chant of "Who wants to play at Cowboys and Indians, No Girls Allowed!". Yes, we managed to be racist and sexist in just one short song back then! Looking at it now I wonder if Girls Allowed the pop group took there name from it?
And what about the classic tough guys schoolyard chant of "Come and have a go if you think your'e hard enough!"
Another short song, a lullaby, I recall is quite poignant as my late Mum and Dad would sing it me when they were on wee Woodsy bedtime duty. It went something like 'Go to sleep my Baby, close your pretty eyes......". Not sure how it went after that but the melody still brings a lump to my throat!
There must have been gazillions more ditties and jingles back then readers. you know any?
