Can anyone remember any of these? DD(6) is practising but cant remember many of the words, and brain dead mummy can only remember "3,6,9, the goose drank wine" one.
The only other one I can think of begins
"under the brown bush, under the sea.."
...that's all I can remember!
Any offers? She's desperate to join in with her friends but wants to know some off by heart.

Oh and the song about condoms...

"My aunts saw me, kissing a soldier, now she won't buy me a rubber johnny"

I know this is an old thread, but I was googling old skipping games and find it fascinating how the rhymes varied from region to region.
We sang:
Under the bramble bushes, under the sea,
True love to you my darling,
True love to me,
We're getting married to raise a family of...
1 2 3 4 5 6
Egg and chips all for me,
Johnny broke the bottle and blamed it on me,
I told ma,
Ma told pa
Johnny went to bed with an "ooh-ah-ah" ( smacked bottom)
Child beating was obviously acceptable too back then! X

When Suzy had a baby, she called it Tiny Tim
She put him in the bathtub to see if he could swim
He drank up all the water
He ate up all the soap
He couldn’t eat the bathtub because it wouldn’t fit down his throat!

Suzy called the doctor, Suzy called the nurse, Suzy called the lady with the alligator purse.

In came the the doctor, in came the nurse, in came the lady with the alligator purse.

“Mumps” said the doctor, “measles” said the nurse, “chickenpox” said the lady with the alligator purse!

Out went the doctor, out went the nurse, out went the lady with the alligator purse!
