 the gypsy poet

school days and more

There was a little tuck shop
around the corner from branksome heath
with liqurice of skipping ropes
and gaudy sweet false teeth

i went to school at branksome heath
when i was a small wee lad
i drew pictures of naked ladies then
oh i was so very bad

we waved the flags on empire day
played marbles on the ground
picture pastcards we called flicks
we listened to the band

we often walked to school
or rode the number eight
we had those rucksacks on our backs
parents waved us from our gates

we said our prayers there daily
sang the schools own song
we all had recreation
 and we all just got along

our teachers all were wise men
we recited maths tables and weather then
knew our place and more
we always did as we were told
or wed all get what for
