A wonder if kids still build and play with a boggie ( a guess not ), we had so much fun on them and tore a few frocks to boot,

Chrissie - I've just remembered one of the songs I sang while playing doublers -

Bobby Shaftoe went to sea
Silver buckles on his knee
He'll come back and marry me
Bonny Bobby Shaftoe

What simple fun we had! I can't imagine kids these days singing to themselves out in the street.

Tippy tippy tap upon my shoulder
Tippy tippy tap upon my shoulder
I am the master
follow me my master says, follow me my master says
Iam the master.
in and out o' the dusty bluebells
in and out o' the dusty bluebells I am the master.
She is handsome she is pretty she is the belle of Belfast city
she has sweethearts 1 2 3
wont you tell me who is she?
Tell my ma when I get home the boys wont leave the gilrs alone
She is handsome she is pretty she is the belle of Belfast city........

Lassies skipping and ring a' roses games song.

one of Stuart's wee songs,
---------------------------------
Mary had a little lamb
she put it in the bunker
a bit of coal went in it's eye
and made it dae the rumba.

----------------------------------
one two three a leery
I spy Wallace Beery
sittin oan his bumbaleery
kissin Shirley Temple.

Another wee glasgow song.

My girls a corker .she's a New yorker
I'd do most anything to keep her in style,
She's got a pair of hips just like two battle ships
that's the way the money goes.

Kiwi Lass - Isn't it great to see all our wee songs written down. I remembered all of them when I saw them written except Dunvegan's.

Angel - We used to sing the New Yorker one a little differently:
My girl's a corker, she's a New Yorker
I'd do most anything to keep her in style
She has a pair of legs just like two whiskey kegs
That's the way the money goe

Another one comes to mind:

Half a pound of tuppeny rice,
Half a pound of treacle,
That's the way the money goes,
Pop goes the weasel

Do,Re,Mi, when I was wee
I used tae peel the totties

and I cin kiss the loddies.

Ma mother n faither

tae keep me frae the loddies
the hoose fell doon
n A fell oot n A fell in wae the loddies.

Do any of you remember clackers? It was two hard balls on a piece of stirng, and had a plastick hoop for your finger to go through.
You would move it up and down, and it would make a clacking noise, or if it hit you in the head, a crying noise as the blood would pour down.

you can understand why the schools banned them.
my sister usedcto have a thing like a hoop she would put on her leg and it had a string with a huge
rubber ball attached, and she would twirl it around and jump over the ball.
Anyone know what it was called?
