Subject: RE: I'm Rubber . You're Glue: Children's Rhymes
Jerry & Joe F. thanks for posting some interesting putdown and word play rhymes

Jerry, with regards to the "Two Irishmen, two Irishmen, sitting on a fence" that you posted on 24 May 05 - 10:50 PM

is that rhyme and the "that's life" verses part of the same rhyme or are they two separate rhymes?

Joe posted another version for 'that's life' so maybe it was [is] a separate rhyme...

And Jerry-after the floating verse "ask me no questions, I'll tell you no lies {that incidently also is used in other profanity avoidance rhymes like "Miss Susie Had A Steamboat"}, you wrote "If you ever...."

Does this mean that you forgot the rest of the words? or is this the way the rhyme went?

I'd like to remind folks that no one has responded yet to Snuffy's 24 May 05 - 08:29 request for the rest of the words to another play on words rhyme:

"If our Bob gave your Bob a bob on the nose ....."

And no one has posted the words to "Miss Lucy Had A Baby" {Tiny Tim}yet.

Will this thread retire with these posts left hanging???

Oh woe is me! Woe is me!!
