Thread Name: I have lost my underwear & other underwear songs
Subject: RE: I have lost my underwear
Way back in April 2005 Guest dustyrose wrote that she {he?} was going crazy trying to remember the rest of this rhyme:

"Teacher teacher I declare, I see ---- underwear, might be pink, might be blue"


Maybe it's the name "dusty", but this line popped in my head when I finished reading that post:

"might be dirty just like you".

I vaguely remember "Teacher, Teacher I declare" from my childhood in Atlantic City, New Jersey in the 1950s.

Could this be the forgotten line or is this an example of the folk process at work?

I haven't a clue..
