Kids songs from school yards,

HOP HOP HOP TO THE BUTCHERS SHOP
I DARE NOT STAY NO LONGER
FOR IF I DO MY MOTHER WILL SAY
I'VE BEEN PLAYING WITH GIRLS DOWN YONDER
CHORUS. EARLY IN THE MORNING
         EARLY IN THE MORNING
         BEFORE THE BREAK OF DAY
MY MOTHER SAID THAT I NEVER SHOULD PLAY WITH THE GYPSY'S IN THE WOOD
IF I DO MI MOTHER WILL SAY NAUGHTY GIRL TO DISOBEY
YOUR HAIR WONT CURL YOUR SHOES WONT SHINE YOU GYPSY GIRL YOU WONT BE MINE.
CHORUS. eary in the moning etc;

DIP FOR GOLD AND DIP FOR SILVER DIP FOR THE ONE THAT YOU LOVE BEST
I CAN REMEMBER HOW GLAD I USED TO BE WHEN DAD AND MOTHER
WOULD BUY NEW SHOES FOR ME THAT'S THE FEELING WE ALL HAD
HOW NEW SHOES WOULD MAKE YOU GLAD
BUT THE BEST TIMES THAT I RECALL
WAS WHEN WE HAD NO SHOES AT ALL

IN BAREFOOT DAYS WHEN WE WERE JUST A COUPLE A KIDS
IN BAREFOOT DAYS O BOY THE THINGS WE DID
WE'D GO DOWN TO DAISY NOOK
WITH A BENT PIN FOR AN HOOK
AND WE'D FISH ALL DAY
WE'D FISH ALL NIGHT
TILL THE BLOOMIN OLD FISH REFUSED TO BITE
THEN OFF WE'D GO DOWN SOME OLD CELLAR DOOR
WE'D SLIDE AND SLIDE TILL OUR PANTS GOT TORE A LITTLE MORE
THEN WE'D HAVE TO GO HOME AND LIE IN BED
TIL OUR MOTHERS GOT BUSY WITH A NEEDS AND THREAD
O BOY WHAT JOY WE HAD IN BARE FOOT DAYS.
