The other day I was at the grocery store with my grandson. Had him in the shopping trolley buckled in and while we were waiting to cash out I was singing him this nursery rhyme:
Clap hands for daddy to come,
Give (child's name) a cake and a bun,
One with sugar and one with plum,
Clap hands for daddy to come.
The guy in front of me turns round and says:
"Did you say sugar and plum?"
Me: "Yes, why."
Guy: "No reason."
Cashier in broad Scottish accent: "Never heard of that one."
Woman behind me in a broad Scottish accent: "Me neither."
I thought this was a common nursery rhyme and British. Am I wrong?
