Playground song study.
From the Guardian:
The new lottery scheme will be organised by Malcolm Taylor, an expert in colloquial rhyme from the English Folkdance and Song Society, founded in 1911 by folklore revivalist Cecil Sharp. The project aims to encourage creativity and monitor the way in which songs have altered down the ages. Next year Taylor plans to return some of the society's archive recordings to the areas of Britain where they were originally made.
How cool would it be to be an "expert in colloquial rhyme"? Pretty dang cool.
Still searching for my copy of Greasy Grimy Gopher Guts. It's got to be around here somewhere.
