raormaryblairgoldensongbook

How many little punks got their start sipping on a suicide and making up songs about killing the teacher? Playground Jungle charts the folk progress of naughty playground rhymes, like how Jingle Bells evolved into Batman Smells.

Other topics include the dangers of sipping cider through a straw, the filthy lyrics behind the Miss Suzie rhyme you patty-caked to, the nauseating side effects of Comet, the similarity of psychedelic Beatles lyrics to a gross-out British nursery rhyme, the musical properties of beans, and what’s really going on on top of Old Smokey. There’s even a surprising number of 1950s playground songs about lesbians for the little queercore punks.
