    A tisket, a tasket,
    A green and yellow basket;
    I wrote a letter to my love
    and on the way I dropped it.

    I dropped it, I dropped it,
    And on the way I dropped it.
    A little boy picked it up
    And put it in his pocket!
    !! Did you play that at parties and everyone sat in a circle and decided who had the letter (or something symbolising a letter) and then the person who was chosen to close their eyes had to try and guess who had it?

    it's meant to be chalk board and marker board apparantly.

    what about blue-tack?

    I'm sure the red-tack won't be happy about that. They have feelings as well.

    I thought Bobby Shafto was just a northern thing.
    Well my mum used to sing it. She used to sing "Aaron Peter" to my brother and "Lissy blissy" to me as variations.
