    Stick it up a copper's bum,
    When it's brown pull it down.
    Yum Yum Bubble Gum!
     
  2. We used to say 'teacher' instead of 'copper'.

    My partner says they sang it with 'your mother's bum'
     
  4. Ah, THAT'S where it came from (the whole 'your ma' thing)

    one for the bullies

    -x-x-x- x-x-x-x- is no good
    chop them up for firewood
    when they're dead
    boil their head
    and turn it into gingerbread

    A skipping song I remember went:
    What's the time? Half past nine.
    Hang your knickers on the line.
    When a copper comes along,
    Hurry up and put them on.

    My Mum used to sing a song, I can't remember it now but the last line had someone with a pancake stuck to his bum.
    Can anyone remember that one?

    What about: 'PK penny a packet, first you chew it then you crack it, then you stick it on your jacket. PK penny a packet.' This had a dirge- like tune and we used to skip to it.

    I'll tell ma o' Mary Anne.

    My dad taught us that ditty!
    One night, three tom cats came knocking at the door
    One had a fiddle, one had a drum
    and one had a pancake stuck to its bum!
    Are you from the North West, by any chance?
