    At school I had a teacher whose surname was Colly so obviously we (as teenagers) therefore found the ‘four colly birds’ hilarious. Such is the folly of youth…

    Loving the pictures!

  2. How long do people have to mangle the lyrics before the new words just *become* the lyrics?

    • Well, this whole “colly” thing was a big surprise for me, been singing it and hearing it “calling birds” my whole life. I mean, not that I’ve been singing it my whole life or anything. That would be totally obnoxious. But, you know. Thanks Wikipedia!
