Had scrambled eggs for breakfast again!!

If I had a donkey and he wouldn't go
D'you think I'd wallop him? Oh dear no
I'd put him in the stable and give him some corn
The best little donkey that ever was born

Ha Ha ha , hee hee hee
Little brown jug don't I love the
Ha ha ha, you and me
Little brown jug don't I love thee

( A skipping song)
Not last night, but the night before
24 robbers came knocking at my door
As I ran to let them, this is what the first one said to me
Spanish lady, turn around
Spanish lady, touch the ground
Spanish lady, do the high kicks
Spanish lady, do the splits

Mary had a little lamb, she also had a bear
I've often seen her little lamb, but never seen her bear.

Have a nice day,,, Wally.


Jack and Jill,
Went up the hill,
To get a pail of water.
Jill came down,
With half-a-crown
For doing what she hadn't ought't'.

Peter told me a rhyme they said to their brother Mervin to wind him up. There was a red nut who fell in the cut and killed all the fish, but he is not sure what comes next?.

Mom used to sing this to us down the air raid shelter and I still sing it to my grand kids. 'There was a man and and he went mad and her run up a steeple, he pulled off his big red nose and threw it at the people, there was a lady passing by who thought it very funny, she picked it up and wiped it dry then sold it for some money. Regards, David.

Jean, 'Ginger nut fell in the cut and frightened all the fishes, a fish came up and swallowed him up and that was the end of ginger nut.' I too am a ginger nut so had it sung to me many many times which caused many fist fights. Regards David.
