  1. Just lost my beloved Uncle george today who taught me this poem. Does anyone here know the words. Thanx
  2. My Dad used to recite this to me as a child in his broad Yorkshire accent.

    As I walked down Treacle Lane I met me ol pal Micky Plum.
    He said to me, he said to me, he said doust thou want to go Pictures tonight ?
    So I thought a bit an I thought a bit an I thought, I, I;ll go
    It were a Picture it were,
    A few nights later I met a pal who told me poor Micky Plum had died
    Asked if I were going t funeral so I thought a bit an I thought a bit an I thought, I, I;ll go
    So I went t funeral I did
    An it were a funeral it were it were
    Some was laughing on his grave some was dancing on his grave
    But poor me was crying
    Poor Mickey Plum

    I hope this is the version you recall.
