- Extract from "Village Centenary" by Miss Read.
"I remember Mr Hope taking a grammar lesson at the other end of the classroom. He was trying to get the children to stop using the word "got", with small success,
as you might imagine. He wrote it on the blackboard and crossed it through. "Got, got, got!" he cried, "A horrible word! It must be German. Simply leave it out and say
'I HAVE a pen, I HAVE a new nib', understand?" And one of the Bryant boys, a real little gypsy, said "I ain't got neither, Sir"
and everyone broke into laughter, including Mr Hope."

+ the LYRICS
"Ain't got no home, ain't got no shoes
Ain't got no money, ain't got no class
Ain't got no skirts, ain't got no sweater
Ain't got no perfume, ain't got no beer...
I got my hair, I got my head
I got my brains, I got my ears
I got my eyes, I got my nose
I got my mouth, I got my smile..."
'The Boers have got my daddy'
"'The Boers have got my daddy
My soldier Dad;
I don't like to hear my Mammy sigh,
I don't like to see my Mammy cry;
So I'm going in a big ship
Across the raging main,
And I'm going to fight the Boers, I am,
And bring my Daddy home again!'"
Listen to the song.
