Childhood songs and rhymes

Post by Maisie23 » Sun Dec 29, 2019 1:50 pm

trying to teach great grandchildren a rhyme from my childhood but am suffering the effects of slow birthday cake poisioning.

Anyone help with any verses or smelling corrections for the following :-

Green Peas Split peas black soap & laces,
plum duff mealy pud trousers without braces,
ham jam powder for your nose
& Dr Scholes cusions for straightening out your toes.

Hello Maisie, and Welcome to TalkingScot,

I probably wont be any help for you but I was wondering if that was a skipping or ball bouncing song?

About what decade do you think it would be from? 1950s?, 1940s?

Here's something to watch while you're waiting. https://youtu.be/9DrGijdmBqU

All the best,
Alan

One of my Childhood Rhymes I made up !

Jean Kelly, rubber belly
Tin toes, copper nose
Wind her up and away she goes

I learned this from my grandad

Green peas split peas saft soap and laces, plum duff mealie puddings troosers and braces,
Ham jam and powder for your nose cold fusions for straightening out your toes.
Beer stout paraffin and spirits
Rat poison moose traps nanny goats and ferrets
Hair brushes toothbrushes needles and pins and vanishing cream for removing double chins.

Hope this is what you were after [scotland-flag]
