Patience

Here comes an old soldier from Botany Bay,
Have you got anything to give him to-day.

The idea being for each person in turn to name and item and then others add theirs until a long list has to be remembered.
For example:
Caller: Here comes an old soldier from Botany Bay, Have you got anything to give him to-day?

First person: I'll give him a hat
Caller: Here comes an old soldier from Botany Bay, Have you got anything to give him to-day?
Second person: I'll give him a hat and a dog
Caller: Here comes an old soldier from Botany Bay,
Have you got anything to give him to-day?
First person: I'll give him a hat, a dog and a meat pie.
And so on until the list is so long no one can remember it. The funnier the items, the better the game.

Stuck in the Mud.  An alternative G could have been Granny, Granny, pop out of bed.
