CHILDREN’S SONGS AND GAMES

Invented and remodelled unofficial songs


Build a bonfire

Build a bonfire, build a bonfire,
Put the teachers on the top,
Put the prefects in the middle,
And burn the blooming lot.


A hundred years from now

Where shall we be in a hundred years from now?

The worms go in, the worms come out,
They go in thin, they come out stout,
O, o, o, o, a hundred years from now.


Guy, Guy

Guy, Guy
Hit him in the eye,
Put him on the bonfire
And there let him die.


Jingle bells

Jingle Bells
Batman smells
Robin flew away.
He landed on a football pitch
And didn’t know how to play.


Mary had a little lamb

Mary had a little lamb
Her father killed it dead,
And now it goes to school with her
Between two pieces of bread.


On top of spaghetti

On top of spaghetti
All covered with cheese
I lost my poor meatball
When somebody sneezed.

It rolled off the table
And on to the floor
And then my poor meatball
Rolled out of the door.

It rolled in the garden
And under a bush
And then my poor meatball
Was nothing but mush.


We four Beatles

We four Beatles of Liverpool are,
John on bus, and Paul in a car,
George on a scooter, blowing his hooter,
Followed by Ringo Starr.

[Tune: We Three Kings]


Worms

Nobody likes me, everybody hates me
Just ’cause I eat worms,
Long ones, short ones, fat ones, thin ones,
See them wriggle and squirm

Bite their heads off, suck out the juices,
Throw their skins away,
No one knows how I exist
On worms three times a day!
