Childhood songs and rhymes

Post by Maisie23 » Sun Dec 29, 2019 1:50 pm

trying to teach great grandchildren a rhyme from my childhood but am suffering the effects of slow birthday cake poisioning.

Anyone help with any verses or smelling corrections for the following :-

Green Peas Split peas black soap & laces,
plum duff mealy pud trousers without braces,
ham jam powder for your nose
& Dr Scholes cusions for straightening out your toes.

Hello Maisie, and Welcome to TalkingScot,

I probably wont be any help for you but I was wondering if that was a skipping or ball bouncing song?

About what decade do you think it would be from? 1950s?, 1940s?

Here's something to watch while you're waiting. https://youtu.be/9DrGijdmBqU

All the best,
Alan
