having posted the above, it occured to me that I had never heard of this particular nursery rhyme, so if like me you are intrigued to know the rest of the verse (your'e not, oh, I'm disappointed) - well, you are going to get it anyway :usd: - and here goes:
"Elizabeth, Elspeth, Betsy and Bess,
They all went together to seek a bird's nest,
They found a birds's nest with five eggs in it,
They all took one and left four in"
Hardly and stunning piece rhymery, and I suspect the cleverness of the last line would be lost on children anyway.
Personally, I prefer verses to do with a certain woman called Nell, so tomorrow we start a selection of Rugby Songs. Anyone have any favourites??? :usd: :ooh: :wsh:
