roopoo Lyr Req/Add: Mary Ellen at the Church Turned Up (58* d) RE: Lyr Req: Mary Ellen at the Church turned up 25 Oct 00

Well that's something my mum will be interested in. Funny how it reduced down to a bit of playground doggerel, isn't it? I wonder when it actually dates from. It's not in the Opie book "Lore and Language of Schoolchildren", and I never heard anyone else use it. My mum was at school in the East Midlands. Maybe it was just something that developed at her school.

Keep looking! I'm as interested as you!


Oh, and Mike, I meant in the pub tonight! Got me days crossed yesterday. Kids off for half-term break does that to me!
