GUEST,padgett Origins: Barnsley Anthem (50) RE: Origins: Barnsley Anthem 15 Oct 15

I have decided over night, that its origins are in a skipping song!

The song has "pepper pepper, salt in" it ~ my memory has it that "pepper" was fast turn of the skipping rope and the salt (with thumb gesture) means out [of the skipping] ~ original song was UK ~ "you can't put yer muck in our dustbin" ~ but like all songs can and will travel many miles!

This of course refers to the extra bit and not the original Barnsley Anthem ~ still looking for this elusive song
