Subject: RE: Creepy songs
re: SALLY GO ROUND THE ROSES - if memory serves me right, comes from an old English children's rhyme traced back to the plague or death in general and the origin of flowers at funerals to mask the smell in pre-embalming days - most children's rhymes when traced are pretty creepy

just heard "you think I'm psycho mama" for the first time on the radio and am trying to find the writer and/or singer - yanked me right out of my coffee and the times online morning routine
