I thought I'd do something a little different this week. Bunny has been singing lots of playground songs at home - you know - the old fashioned clapping rhymes with actions. I thought I'd share one for #WednesdayWords. I think it's one of those songs that shows children trying to be older than they are, but it's also quite funny.
Lemonade Playground song - author unknown
Sip it once
Sip it twice
Touch the ground
Kick you boyfriend out of town
The one I remember from my own childhood was this:
Chinese Restaurant Playground Song - Author unknown
"I went to a Chinese restaurant to buy a loaf of bread bread bread
They wrapped it up in a five pound note and this is what they said said said
My name is
Sugar and candy
Boys in the background drinking Pepsi
Girls are sexy!"
It turns out from Googling this song, that there are many many different versions - a playground song that got changed by Chinese whispers!
There was also one about a girl who got pregnant by a man called Herbert and they called their baby Sherbert and it ended "Then there was Herbert, and Sherbert, and me!" I don't remember the beginning though - Anybody know?
There's another I remember, but it's a bit rude! Maybe I'll share it next week!
Anyway - if you want to join in with #WednesdayWords - Blog a poem / short story / lyric / prose that has inspired you or summed up how are feeling this week. Grab the badge and link up.
