Stick it up a copper's bum,
When it's brown pull it down.
Yum Yum Bubble Gum!
We used to say 'teacher' instead of 'copper'.
My partner says they sang it with 'your mother's bum'
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.
Trebor mints are a minty bit stronger, shove em up your bum and they last a bit longer...

walking down the street
with a nice young man
bright red shoes
a feather in her 'at
I'll tell ma o' Mary Anne.

How about: 'I'm telling me mum o' you, ya dir-y kangaroo, ya wen beind the dustbin and dun a numba 2.' What dirty little urchins we were!
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?
we knew that one but it was for and twenty robbers came a knockin at my door.
But why would robbers knock? Lol
I remember that one!
My late mother was from Liverpool.
Where were the previous ones from?
Eh? That wasn't what I said. I looked for a typo - but no!
