Thread Name: Origins: I'm not a Pheasant Plucker...
Subject: RE: Pheasant Plucker
For the record, the version I know goes

I'm not a pheasant plucker
I'm a pheasant plucker's son,
And I'm only plucking pheasants
Till the pheasant plucker comes.

Learned long ago from David Weeks, originally of Bexley, Kent, but presumably learned while a drama teacher at Forest Hill School, London.
