Remember any old silly verses etc you were told as a child

Recommended Posts

Don't know if it's been mentioned earlier in the this thread but when I was little and misbehaving mum would threaten me with 'gitneff', don't know if I've spelt that right. I never knew what or who gitneff was but it used to scare me!

Hi All,

                  Anybody remember these "dips" when you had to decide who was "on" next at Tiggy etc,,  (when kids used to actually go out to play as a group) ?

Some I remember are;

Up a ladder, down a ladder in dictation

How many pussycats went to the station,

Close your eyes & think.

"Three"?     1   ...  2  ...  3           (that person's out)

If you do not want to play,  take your hook & go ay-way

With a jolly good slap across the face,  just like .....THAT.       (person gets a "slap" & is out.)

-------------------

Eeny meeny macaracca,  dare I dummaracca,     chickaracca bom bom French.

-------------------

Dip dip dash,   my blue sash,

Sailing on the water like a cup & saucer,  dip dip dash.

------------------

One potato, two potato, three potato, four,       five potato, six potato,  seven potato o'er.

                                               We must have been daft!

Why do I still remember this nonsense?

 

My mother said

I never should

play with the gypsies

in the wood

 

If i did

then she would say

naughty little girl to dis-o-bay

 

I had a bonnet

trimmed with blue

do you still wear it

yes i do

 

when do you wear it?

when i can

when i go out with my young man

 

my young man is a very nice man

tries to teach me all he can

reading, writing arithmetic

he doesn't forget to give me the stick

 

When he does he makes me dance

out of England into France

out of France and in to Spain

over the hills and back again!

 

(Phew!)
