There was one, somewhat racist looking back, about a man called Archiebal who bought his wife a pair of shoes and when they began to wear, he began to swear, swear swear.

Anyone recall this awful rhyme?

Gardenqueen, I think it went something like this.

Archibald bald bald, king of the jews jews jews
Bought his wife wife wife a pair of shoes shoes shoes
When the shoes shoes shoes began to wear wear wear
Archibald bald bald began to swear swear swear.

When the swear swear swear began to stop stop stop
Archibald bald bald bought a shop shop shop
When the shop shop shop began to sell sell sell
Archibald bald bald bought a bell bell bell

When the bell bell bell began to ring ring ring
Archibald bald bald began to sing sing sing
doh ri me fah so lah tee doh
Who stole my wife I do not know. rolleyes.gif

This is only a small version of a whole lengthy verse. it always led onto another phrase of sounds like your about to say one thing and then go off in another direction.

Please keep of the grass
and let the ladies pass
here comes the policeman
sliding on his .....
Ask no questions tell no lies
shut yer mouth and you'll catch no fly's
