...and your three least favourite!!!

I've just entered the wonderful world of 'song time' with ds (4 months). Most of the songs we sing are new to me!

I thought it might be fun to see what everyone else is singing around the country - and maybe remind ourselves some of the forgotten classics and learn some regional gems!!

My favourites...(in no particular order)...

The Quartermaster's Stores
Ten Fat Sausages (sizzling in a pan)
What shall we do with a drunken sailor?

...my least favourites...

Wind the bobbin up
The wheels on the bus
Old MacDonald

Over to you......

okaaaayyyy-favourites.

wind the bobbin up
the wheels on the bus
baba black sheep

Thanks Stalker & Smug - who'd have thought Val Doonican could be so entertaining! I particularly liked the shot of the goat's anus!!

Haven't heard of King Coraticus, either.

TMMJ I love it too, I would say it is my absolute fave kids song grin

which one sorry?

PavlovtheCat Fri 12-Sep-08 18:14:02

TMMJ - King Coractucus, you did not actually say you liked it did you, just linked it!

I have just listened to it again, oh how sad!

Gotta love Rolf! He was the star turn at our university summer ball.

Does anyone sing 'Suzanne is a funniful man'? My Grandpa used to sing it to me - haven't heard it since.

You got to look at my Link for Music Man, honestly it is a fab version, you will LOVE it!

I used to sing it in infant school, along with Apusski Dusski Apusski Du.

This was in England- I sound like Nanook of the North! grin

I also love 'Donkey Riding' which I missed off my list.
