When I was a little boy

Melody -

When I was a little boy,
I washed my mammy's dishes;
I put my finger in my eye,
And pulled out golden fishes.

A variation, of what John Aubrey (the 17th-century diarist), called a: 'filthy rhyme, used by Base people':

When I was a young Maid, and
wash't my Mother's dishes,
I putt my finger in my -- and
pluck't-out little Fishes.
