Small Sprogs song

Small Sprog was humming in the back of the car on his way to cubs last night.
"Can I sing you a rude song?" He asked me.
"Yes" I giggled This is the bones of what he sang me :

Ollie, Ollie, Ollie
With his **** in a trolley
And his ***** in a biscuit tin,
Sitting in the grass
With his........

Do you know what? There is more, but I can't bear to repeat it!

I glanced around at him and he was beaming form ear to ear!
"You won't sing that to anyone else will you?" I asked him.
"No"
"Who taught it to you anyway?"
"Not telling you!"

He can be very loyal!

"Did you learn it in the playground?" I asked, as it was the first day back to school today.
"No"
"From the nit children?"

He was quiet for a while, I knew it was bound to be them.......

"No!"
"You won't sing it to Granny or Grandma will you?" I plead, I mean, can you imagine?!!

We drove in silence for a bit, though I suspect he was still humming quietly!

"Have you sung it to daddy?"
"No"
"No one else then?" He shook his head.

I was secretly pleased that he had chosen to share his 'Rude Song' with me! I can see the blokiness developing in him at an alarming rate. I looked over my shoulder and said "When you are older, you are going to have such a great time!" And he beamed back at me.

After a while he pipes up in the back.... "Eleanor taught it to me"

I shrieked with laughter! She is Tall Girls best friend, 12 years old and very demure.

"Are you sure?"I giggled
"Yes, she sang it when we were on the trampoline" He said proudly
"So Tall Girl knows it to?"
"No, she had already got off, you won't tell Domestic Goddess (her mother and my best friend) will you?"

I shook my head, smiling to myself.........You bet I'm gonna tell her. I can't wait to see her face!

How funny, and it takes something to put a smile on my face at the moment.

Oh... he is a lovely lad isn't he?
Fancy a demure 12 year old girl, corrupting him like that!
Glad he shares with you!

I hope thats not going to be one of those songs that get stuck in my head. All together now, Ollie Ollie Ollie...

Well, we all know about demure 12 year old girls, they're the filthiest of the lot....

That is the song that Joe Swash sang in the jungle on 'I'm a Celebrity...' He taught it to George Takei, which was quite funny. My two have both heard it at school! x

In my experience, the demure girls are always the worst offenders!

Not having been a demure girl myself, of course!

At least he sang it to you, perhaps he was trying it out, to find out your reaction!!

Letty ;0))))))))

I'm wondering what the asterisks are substitutes for - I've tried various words and I'm anxious to make it scan.

I can just imagine in 20 years time when you remind him of this

Go on, tell us the rest of it!

You must rent him out! He could be a professional cheerer-upper! He is destined to be a rugby-player.

I can almost see the twinkle in his eye as he sang this to you, Suburbia:) I remember always worrying about my second son saying or repeating something like this to his grandparents or someone else he shouldn't have. Little boys are so much fun! Of course, it's the quiet ones--like Demure Girl--who usually instigate things.

Enjoyed your responses to your meme yesterday; looks like a great way for a little self-reflection. And I hope you can soon find what you're searching for.

You can't tell, you promised him! It's funny what they come out with it isn't it? I remember my boys asking if they could tell me a joke but needing permission because it contained a swearword!

Ah yes, it's always the quiet ones. Did well to remember it too! X

Please supply the full unexpurgated version... I have two young boys who would be willing receptacles for this kind of knowledge... (3 boys if you include me).
