child hood songs/artists

quite often in other posts we post lyrics to songs /poems and today one was posted from my childhood ( tulips from amsterdam by Max Bygraves ) which took me to you tube to listen to it again and there i found many others which i had forgotten or not heard for decades

like
Gilly Gilly Ossenfeffer again sang by Max Bygraves ( mainly a uk artist who covered a lot of this sort of songs and was called Uncle Max)

Jake the peg ( not what we have always called it ?)
my boomerang wont come back
Tie me kangaroo down sport by Rolf Harris (Rolfy babe rules)

Puff the magic dragon by Peter Paul and Mary

anyone out there wish to share there childhood songs ?

i must admit to shedding a few tears mainly of joy though
and then i wonder what will my grandchildrens songs be when they are older with all the house/garage/rapping songs that are about now. Oh no it will be the crazy frog

Re: child hood songs/artists

'i know an old lady who swallowed a fly' was one i sang in a talent show back in grade school i recently saw a peter, paul and mary show on public broadcasting and they did that song on their show. i was quite surprised that it was still done the same way i had done years ago. they also did 'Puff', another old favorite there's lots of old greats out there somewhere... 'Farmer in the Dell', 'Old MacDonald' and there's another on the tip of my tongue that i cant quite get out; something about an old man and a banjo maybe? lol. i'll remember it in a few days

Kraig, I've got an MP3 of Beryl Ives singing "I Know and Old Lady" !

Here are some I remember

"Mare's Eat Oats, and Does Eat Oats and Little Lambs Eat Ivy"
"Abba Dabba Honeymoon"
"Teddy Bear's Picnic"
"Big Rock Candy Mountain"
"Go Tell Aunt Rhodey"
"This Old Man" (Knick-Knack, Patty-Whack)

Re: child hood songs/artists

swampy, cool. i remember listening to burl ives as a kid and i think i recall him doing that song

yes, knick knack patty whack. lol. stirring memories now. and though not really a children's song, we had a 78 rpm of the davy crockett song... 'davy, davy crockett, king of the wild frontier.' i think it was sung by fess parker. boy, long time since i've heard that name.

maybe you shld have named this the nostalgia thread, palms

Re: child hood songs/artists

Craig " I know a old lady " is one that we know over here as well and is still sung ( usually by grandparents )

Looking at your list Swampy i know about half of them again though i know knick knack but the next word is different ( wont put it as it may not be very pc in the world we live in now )

Craig just for you here is a you tube link for Davy Crockett

and here is a link for another one this time Terry Scott ( uk comedy actor) singing "my brother " enjoy

Re: child hood songs/artists
