GUEST,Laura 'Singing Together' - BBC Song Booklets (113* d) RE: 'Singing Together' 1958 UK 25 Sep 07

Hello everybody

I am so pleased to have found this discussion group. I've just been out walking the dog, singing away to myself all the old songs I could remember from Primary School (almost 30 years ago!).

Can anyone help with this one - it starts off

"T'was the 15th of September, how well I do remember
I nearly broke my poor old mother's heart.
For I shipped with Captain Nipper on a good 4-masted clipper
Bound to far away and foreign parts.
And the wind began to blow and the ship began to roll
And a devil of a hurricane did blow, aye-aye-oh,
It nearly knocked the stuffin' from the Good Ship Ragamuffin
And we thought that to the bottom we should go...."

I can't remember the other verses but I remember us giving a rousing 'Aye-aye-oh' when we got to that bit in our tiny country school, with the Master playing along on a tinny old piano!

Am I being daft or has anyone scanned in the front covers of the old Singing Together books? I can't find that page, so would be grateful if someone could post it....

Many thanks
