Snapshots #349: A Top Ten Songs About Schoolyard Games

Remember the days of the old schoolyard
We used to laugh a lot,
Oh, don't you remember the days of the old schoolyard?
When we had imaginings and we had
All kinds of things and we laughed

Cat Stevens – (Remember The Days Of The) Old Schoolyard 

Here are ten songs that might remind you of games played in the old school yard...

10. The cast of Lost.

Missing Persons - Mental Hopscotch

9. Don't suck old sweets.

8. Cabernet Sauvignon.

It's made with black grapes...

7. Keep drinking and you'll become one.

6. American G.I. gets lost in the subtext.

GI Joe gets lost in the subTEXt.

5. Deano takes it easy with a brand new key.

Dean Martin takes it EZ with Melanie...

4. Proving Del Amitri wrong.

Del Amitri said that Nothing Ever Happens. These guys would disagree.

3. One Frou, near the top of Frank's New York ascent. 

She was one half of Frou Frou, and top of the heap!

2. Straight out of The Bible.

He was the lead singer of The Bible.

(They used to call it Sleeping Tigers when I were a lad.)

1. Big Daddy, found near the Statue of Liberty.

Big Daddy was Shirley Crabtree. Liberty Island is adjacent to Ellis Island in New York.
That should keep you busy till next Saturday morning.


  1. Parachute? Never heard of that one

    1. It might be a more modern one. I remember them playing it with Sam in nursery. They ally hide under a big sheet which the teachers flap up and down like a parachute.

    2. After my time I think. This is more my era:

    3. "Like British Bulldog, the game of Red Rover has been banned by many schools because of the risk of potential physical harm."

      They take away all our fun.
