    Default Skipping songs from the past

    This is a thread for the girls. As a rope holder I know a few myself but I wondered could we jog a few memories of the rhymes we skipped too.

    On a Mountain



    Advertisements -------

    On a mountain stands a lady,
    Who she is I do not know,
    All she wears is Gold and Silver,
    All she needs is a fine young man,
    So I call in _______ dear, ________dear, _________dear,
    So I call in _______ dear, while I go out to play,
    Good-day.
    (The named girl jumps in when called, and the original girl jumps out on Good-day)


    We sang call in my very best friend!
    Oh as I was young and easy in the mercy of his means,
    Time held me green and dying
    Though I sang in my chains like the sea.

    Dylan Thomas

    Micky mouse is dead
    He died last night in bed
    He cut his throat
    With a ten pound note
    And this is what he said
    Red white and blue
    Me mother was a jew
    Me father was an Irishman
    And out goe's you
    Oh as I was young and easy in the mercy of his means,
    Time held me green and dying
    Though I sang in my chains like the sea.

    It`s raining it`s pouring
    the man next door is snoring
    He went to bed with a pain in his head
    and never got up next morning
