Was always a tiger for us as kids and I'm 34 now so it's presumably been thus for quite some time! It was actually only relatively recently I heard that the original version was, errrm, somewhat different.

My family made up rhymes about 14 children. Oh my auntie Nelly, She had a wooden belly, Set her up, Knock her down 3 ball a penny. I have forgotten the one about my mother. It starts Oh my auntie Hilda, She fell in love with a builder.

My other memories.

What’s the time?

Half past nine . Hang your knickers on the line. When they’re dry bring them in, Put them in the biscuit tin. Eat a biscuit, eat a cake, eat your knickers by mistake. 

Or what’s the time?Half past nine, Hang your knickers on the line. When a policeman comes along, Hurry up and put them on.

Two balls against the wall chant.Nebuchadnezza the king of the Jews, bought his wife a pair of shoes, when the shoes began to wear, Nebuchadnezzar began to swear, when the swear began to stop ,Nebuchadnezzar bought a shop. When the shop began to sell, Nebuchadnezzar bought a bell. When the bell began to ring, Nebuchadnezzar began to sing. Doh Ray Me Fa So Me Doh.

The rhymes I recall being chanted to me by grandparents and old relatives when I was a small child in the early '60's are a bit surreal and  still don't make any sense at all....even though I'm now an old fogey myself!  A couple of these old rhymes I remember are.... 

 

"There was a little man and he had a little gun

Up that field, he did run,

Wi' a belly full o' fat and a big straw hat

And a pancake tied to his bum...bum...bum"

 

Another one was...

 

"Up streets and down streets

Windows made of glass

Call at Mrs (insert name)

And you'll see a bonny lass

With red, rosy cheeks

And a dimple in her chin

And as much like her mother

As ever she did grin"

I'll back Jabberwocky up on this one! I know that he (or she?) didn't make it up at all, because my old great grand-dad used to chant more or less exactly the same rhyme to me in the early 60's....as in..,

 

Once upon a time

The birds sh-t lime

The monkeys chewed tobacco

The little dog run

With his finger up his bum

To see what was the matter. 

 

What a totally ridiculous verse - it doesn't even rhyme...... for f---s  sake! A lot of the verses piled on me in my childhood involved "bums" - as in fingers up bums...and pancakes tied to bums, etc. What is it about Sheffield nursery rhyme and "bums"? As in....

 

You know last night?

No.. the night before

3 little tom-cats

Knocked at my door

One had a fiddle

One had a drum

And one had a pancake,,,

Tied to his bum

 

😁

Yes, I remember the rhyme about the bird lime was sung to a tune.
