Subject: RE: Folklore: May day Rhymes or songs
Things must be very different where you guys & gals are if you can teach that song to kids without them snickering about the lines about And on that girl there was a man/And from that man there was a seed/etc.

Things must also be different where you live if the parents & guardians of those children wouldn't get indignant that by teaching that song as posted by Guest, Confrontation Viper {was he or she serious?} they'd probably accuse you of trying to teach their kids about sex- not to mention that the song includes that line about death {Oh, the horrors of that!}

Where I live, the words to the "Green Grass Grew All Around" @displaysong.cfm?SongID=10094 would be much more acceptable than the words to that "In the woods there grew a tree" song as posted above.

Were you serious about these words, or was that snark?
