I remember one more but I'm not sure if it was  a clapping song or a jump rope song..it's been a long time..

Engine, Engine, number nine
Going down Chicago Line
If the train falls off the track
Do you want your money back
Yes, No, Maybe So

There was another one we used to do with 4 people and we'd clap to the person on the left, then to the person on the right, then reach up and clap to the person across from us, then scrunch down and clap to the person across from us again, then keep repeating the pattern.  I can't really remember the song very well...just a little piece of it

There was a lady knocking at my door
Saying "Ooh! Ahh! I want a piece of pie!"
Pie to sweet? I want a piece of meat
Meat too rough? I want to ride a bus
Bus too full? I want to ride a bull.

haha these songs made no sense and we didn't even notice! haha

We're going to Kentucky,
We're going to the fair
To see the Senorita
With flowers in her hair

Oh, shake it, shake it, shake it,
Shake it all you can,
Shake it like a milk shake,
And do the best you can

Oh, rumble to the bottom,
rumble to the top
Turn around and turn around
Until you make a stop!

Hmm.. the "dink a bink a bottle of ink cork fell out and you stink" doesn't ring a bell at all... but the rest of it definitely does... I think we used that line in a different one but I can't remember...

Bull too fat, want my money back
Money too green? Want a jelly bean

she named him tiny tim
she put him in a bathtub
to see if he could swim
he drank up all the water
he ate up all the soap
...( i can't remember what line goes here if any)

So miss susie called the doctor,
The doctor called the nurse
The nurse called the lady with the alligator purse

"Measles" said the doctor
"Mumps" said the nurse
"Nothing" said the lady with the alligator purse

Miss Susie punched the doctor
Miss Susie slapped the nurse

I hod sooo For gotten this one untill I read it here and it just came right back , we never said miss susuie I think we just said Mama but the line you're missing is
...he drunk up all the water, he ate up all the soap
He tried to eat the bath towel but it wouldn't go down his throat!

The one I remember most went like a lot of the others but strangely enough it started with ...
Chachi loves Joni, Joni loves Chachi,
East, West,
I met my boyfriend at the candy store
he bought me ice cream
he bought me cake
he brought me home witha belly ache
I said Mama mama I feel sick call the doctor quick quick quick,
Doctor doctor will I die? Count to five and you'll survivie ..1... 2...3..4..5.. Im Alive!
or if someone messed up the rythm
We'd say I died!
I also remember
lets get the rythm of the head ding dong
lets get the rythm of the hands ..clap, clap.
lets get the rythm of the feet..stomp stomp
lest get the rythm of the Hottdooogg.( hip circle)

When I was a kid it was Miss Lucy rather than Suzy.  And in our rhyme, the BATHTUB "wouldn't go down his throat." <lol>

We had a dirty-ish one, that went to the tune of "Rockin' Robin"

Mama's in the kitchen, cookin' rice
Daddy's outside, shootin' dice
Brother's in jail, raising bail,
Sister's on the corner selling fruit cocktail

(on "fruit" we crossed our arms over our chests, "cock" we put out hands on our, well...y'know...and "tail," we put our hands on our butts.)

Of course we did NOT do this in front of adults! :)

yes, i remember that one. then there was the song to the same tune that my friend learned at camp and talked to me. we used to sing it like this:

coca cola came to town
pepsi cola shot him down
dr. pepper stiched him up
now we all drink 7-up

i'm a nut, i'm a nut, i'm a nut, i'm a nut, i'm a nut

romeo and juliet
on a balcony they met
scram you guys i got a date
shakespeare's coming in a '48

i'm a nut, etc.

this song had another verse i think, and if you look it up online it comes out as "sweet cream soda pop" but i can't remember putting that into the song at all.

after D-A-R-K on the miss susie song we used to sing this...

dark, dark, dark, dark
dark is like a theater
a theater's like a show
a show is like a television that is all i know
i know i know my ma
i know i know my pa
i know i know my sister with a forty acre bra
my mom gave me a nickel
my dad gave me a dime
my sister gave me a girlfriend
that kissed me all the time

and if you changed the line above to "that looked like frankenstein" it would be extended to:

he made me do the dishes
he made me scrub the floor
he made me wash his underwear
so i kicked him out the door
i kicked him over london
i kicked him over france
i kicked him way too hard
he accidentley peed his pants.

we got such a kick out of this at school. what was funny was that every division of elementary schools had their own versions. they changed consistently.

where the bull frogs jump from bank to bankey

we used to do that sitting in a circle and slapping hands around as we played. the person who slapped on kerplop was out and the game would start again.
this was MAJOR popular in my elementary school in the nineties. some of the boys even joined us.

7-up made him pale
Now he drinks ginger ale
Ginger ale made him sick
Now he drinks chocolate Quik."

I think there was more but I forget.  Anyone else ever heard of this?




Of course I've heard that!  If you remember 1984, you remember that one at least (and "Michael Jackson and Richard Pryor for the Ignited Negro College Fund)
It seems there were a bunch of x-rated skip-rope rhymes my big sister learned as a kid.  Just around the time I was born, my dad was still in his doctoral program, and we were living in Dorchester.  She picked 'em up there, I think.  But they're too nasty to post here!
:P

I remember Pia Zadora had a Top 40 hit with this clapping song called "The Clapping Song" in 1983.  I think these lyrics are of Caribbean origin:
 
Three-six-nine
the gosse drank wine.
The monkey chew tobacco on the street car line.
The line broke
the monkey got choked
And they all went to heaven in a little row boat.
Clap Pat - Clap Pat - Clap Pat - Clap Slap!
Clap Pat! Clap your hand

Pat it on your partners hand . . . Right hand.
Clap Pat! Clap your hand
cross it with your left arm

Pat your partners leff palm.
Clap Pat! Clap your hand
pat your partners right palm
With your right palm again. Clap Slap! Clap your hand

Slap your thighs and sing a little song.

My mama told me if I was goody

That she would buy me a rubber dolly
My Aunty told her I kissed a soldier

Now she wont buy me a rubber dolly.
Three-six-nine
the goose drank wine
. . .
Clap Clap! Clap your hands and prepare to pat
Pat! Take your right arm

Put your partners right palm with your right palm.
Clap ! Take your hand back and clap. Pat! Take your right
arm

Cross your right ann with your left arm

Pat your partners leff palm with your left palm.
Clap! Now back with a clap
Slap - Take the pats of your palms and slap your thighs

And watch the fun materialize
As you sing this little song
My mama told me if I was goody
. . .
Three-six-nine
the goose drank wine
. . .
Clap Clap . . .
My mama told me if I was goody
. . .


UB40 also used the lyric:
"The monkey chew tobacco on the street car line, The line broke, the monkey got choked" ("de line broke, de monkey get choke") in the chant for their version of "Red, Red Wine" (1984), but I can't find this rap on any of the lyrics sites.  Anyone know where I can find it?

coca cola went to town
Hi C knocked him down

brought him to Dr Pepper
Dr Pepper gave him
Jelly Rolls Sleeping Pills
in the land of mars where the ladys smoke cigars
every puff they mak is enough to kill a snake
when the snake is dead they put roses in his head
when the roses die they put diamonds in his eye
when the diamonds breack it is time to bake a cake
when the cake is done it is 1991------2000

yes, i remember that one. then there was the song to the same tune that my friend learned at camp and talked to me. we used to sing it like this:

coca cola came to town
pepsi cola shot him down
dr. pepper stiched him up
now we all drink 7-up

i'm a nut, i'm a nut, i'm a nut, i'm a nut, i'm a nut

romeo and juliet
on a balcony they met
scram you guys i got a date
shakespeare's coming in a '48

i'm a nut, etc.

this song had another verse i think, and if you look it up online it comes out as "sweet cream soda pop" but i can't remember putting that into the song at all.


There were several more verses -

Mary had a little lamb
the Dr. was surprised
When Old McDonald had a farm
you should have seen his eyes!

I'm a nut. I'm a nut, I'm craaaaaaaaaaaaaazy

Mary had a little lamb
she tied him to a heater
everytime he turned around
he burnt his little seater!

I'm a nut, I'm a nut, I'm craaaaaaaaaazy

Took myself to the movie show
just because I loved me so
wrapped my arms around my waist
got so fresh I slapped my face

I'm a nut. I'm a nut, I'm crazy

Coca cola came to town,
Pepsi cola shot him down,
Dr. Pepper stitched him up
now they all drink seven up

Im a nut, I m a nut Im crazy

Papa moses shot a skunk
Mama moses cooked a hunk
Baby moses ate a hunk
holy moses how they all stunk

Im a nut, etc....

I can sing
and I can dance
I wear ruffles on my
oops boys take another guess
I wear ruffles on my pants

Im a nut........


Those are all that I can remember

When I was a kid it was Miss Lucy rather than Suzy.  And in our rhyme, the BATHTUB "wouldn't go down his throat." <lol>

We had a dirty-ish one, that went to the tune of "Rockin' Robin"

Mama's in the kitchen, cookin' rice
Daddy's outside, shootin' dice
Brother's in jail, raising bail,
Sister's on the corner selling fruit cocktail

(on "fruit" we crossed our arms over our chests, "cock" we put out hands on our, well...y'know...and "tail," we put our hands on our butts.)

Of course we did NOT do this in front of adults! :)"


The version I remember as a kid was a bit dirtier than this one


Mama's in the kitchen, cookin fried chicken
Daddy's in the hall peeing on the wall
Brother's in jail, raising hell
Sister's on the street selling fruit, cock, tail

this is my version of mis suzey:

miss moly had a steem boat the steam boat had a bell,
miss moley went to heven the steam boat went to
hell-oh operator give me number 9
and if you disconnect me i'll kick you in
behind the yellow curten thair was a peice of glass
miss moly sat apon it and broke her big fat
ass-k me no more questions tell me no more lies
the boys are having sex than ziping up thair
flies are in the kichen, bees are in the park
miss moly and her sisters boyfriend are kissing in the
dark is like a theortor
the theorters like a show
the show is like a radio and that is all i know
i know i know my ma
i know i know my pa
i know i know my sister with the 40acr bra
ive seen her in the the ocan
ive seen her in the sea
ive seen her in the bath tub
oops, pardon me
my ma gave me a penny
my pa gave me a dime
my sister gave me a boyfriend
who kissed me all the time
my ma took back the penny
my pa took back the dime
my sister took back the boyfriend
and gave me frankenstine
he made me wash the dishes
he made me wash the floor
he read  so many porn magizenes
so i kicked him out the door
i kicked him over londen
i kicked him over france
i kicked him oh so quickly
that he went up in a stance

miss moly was horny
"you dirty dirty girl"(mister moly sais this)
miss molys sis walks in and sais
"im gunna hurl".

miss moly has a baby
she named it tiney tim
she put it in the tub
to see if it could swim

it drank up all the water
it ate up all the soap
when she woke upin the mornin
it had bubbles in its throat

miss moly called a docter
miss moly called a nurse
miss moly called the lady with aligator purse

measels said the doctor
mumps said the nurse
hickups said the lady with the aligtor purse

miss moly shot the doctor
miss moly shot the nurse
come in and stay 4 tea miss aligator purse




heres another:

Down down baby
Down by the rollercoaster
Sweet sweet baby
I'll never let you go
Kissed my boyfriend
Naughty naughty
Won't do the dishes
Lazy lazy
Stole a piece of candy
Greedy greedy
Jumped off a building
Crazy crazy
Two chinese men sittin' on a bench
Trying to make a dollar outta eighty five cents
Twist twist
Twist like this
This is how me and my boyfriend kiss
When you 'twist' you grab the other person's hands and cross them and uncross them and when you are done with the rhyme whoever's arms are crossed they kiss their boyfriends and whoever's arms aren't crossed, you don't kiss.

and another version:

down, down baby, down, down the roller coaster. sweet, sweet baby, sweet, sweet, don’t let me go. shimmy, shimmy, cocoa pop. shimmy, shimmy, rock. shimmy, shimmy, cocoa pop. shimmy, shimmy, rock. I met a girlfriend - a triscuit. she said, a triscuit - a biscuit. ice cream, soda pop, vanilla on the top. ooh, Shelly’s out, walking down the street, ten times a week. I read it. I said it. I stole my momma’s credit. I’m cool. I’m hot

Ah, you may be thinking more of cheerleader rhymes.  I was thinking more of the skip-rope/hopscotch rhymes, some of which were cute, others profane because kids figure out how fun it is to say words you're not supposed to say!

In my mother's day it only went as far as:

"Hello operator
Gimme 909*
My father works for the railroad line**
Pushes all the buttons
Rings all the bells
and tells all the people to go to
Hell--
--O operator gimme 909..."
:P

*or "Gimme number 9"
** or "works on the telephone line"

Perhaps this thread belongs in "More than a Decade." 

To bring it back to the '80s, Pia Zadora had a top 40 hit in 1983 with "The Clapping Song."
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Clapping_Song

3, 6, 9
The goose drank wine
The monkey chew tobacco on the streetcar line
The line broke, the monkey got choked
And they all went to heaven in a little rowboat

Clap pat - clap pat - clap pat - clap slap
Clap pat! clap your hand...
Pat it on your partner hand... right hand
Clap pat! clap your hand...
Cross it with your left arm
Pat your partner left palm
Clap pat! clap your hand...
Pat your partner right palm
And a right palm again
Clap slap! clap your hand...
Slap your thigh and sing a little song go...

My Mother told me
If I was goody
That she would buy me
A rubber dolly
My Auntie told her
I'd kissed a soldier
Now she won’t buy me
A rubber dolly

3, 6, 9
The goose drank wine
The monkey chew tobacco on the streetcar line
The line broke, the monkey got choked
And they all went to heaven in a little rowboat

Clap clap!
Clap your hands and prepare to pat
Clap!
Take your right arm
Pat your partner palm with your right palm

Clap!
Take your hand back and clap
Clap!
Take your right arm
Cross your right arm with your left arm
Pat your partner left palm with your left palm
Clap!
Now back with a clap
Take your hand to your palm and slap your thigh
And watch the fun materialize
As you sing this little song:

My Mother told me
If I was goody
That she would buy me
A rubber dolly
My Auntie told her
I'd kissed a soldier
Now she won’t buy me
A rubber dolly

Clap!

Clap pat - clap pat - clap slap
Clap pat!
Clap pat - clap pat - clap slap

However, this was written in the sixties by Shirley Ellis.  Use of the pidgin style was popular in the fifties and sixties, for example "Louie, Louie."
UB40 used some of this rhyme in the toasting section of their version of "Red Red Wine" (Monkey chew tobacco on de streetcar line, de line broke, de monkey get choke...."

And "The Clapping Song" was made dirty by little girls, I seem to remember:

"1,2,3,4,5,6, and 9,
A monkey stuck his finger up a girl's behind
The girl screamed
The monkey turned green
And they all went to heaven a little tangerine"

Nope.  We don't 'do' cheerleading in the UK.  It was a skipping song I was thinking of.

I'm a little Girl Guide
Dressed in blue
And these are the actions
I must do
Salute to the Captain
Bow to the Queen
And show my knickers to the football team.



Sometime in the 80s The Belle Stars also had a hit with The Clapping Song, in the UK

in the land of mars
where the ladies smoke cigars
every puff they take
is enough to kill a snake

they put roses in its head
when the roses die
they put diamonds in its eyes
when the diamonds break
that's the end of that old snake

when i was in elementary school, it kept going like this:

darker than the ocean,
darker than the sea
darker than the underwear my mother puts on me

my mother is godzilla
my father is king kong
my brother is a fa**ot
that's why i sing this song!

i haven't seen anyone else post that


Down here it was similar to that but not the same

Darker than the ocean, darker than the sea
Darker than the underwear my grandma gave to me
My mother is godzilla, my father is king kong
My brother is the stupid one that made up this dumb song

Does Anyone Know


My Boyfriend gave me an apple
my boyfriend gave me a pear
my boyfriend gave me a kick up the bum
so i threw him down the stairs
i threw him over london
i threw him over france
i threw him over the garden fence
and it ripped his underpants
i took him to the sweetshop
to buy some bubblegum
and when he bent right over i shoved it up his bum
i made him lick the dishes
i made him lick the floor
i made him lick the babys bum in nineteen ninety four  ;D

Clapping gets infectious when the beat rolls in.  No wonder "Tag Team" borrowed this bass line!

Momma's having a baby
Daddy's driving her crazy
If it's a girl i'll give it a curl
If it's a boy i'll give it a toy
If it's twins i'll wrap it up in toilet paper and kick it down the elevator
First elevator says "STOP"
Second elevator says "STOP"
Third elevator says "Keep on going till your hands get hot"

We still do these:

"Twee-Lee Lee Lee Lee Lee Coocoo; Twee-Lee Lee Lee Lee Lee Coocoo; Popcycle, Popcycle, sha-bang bang! Said, Walking through the tree tops, all day long. Huffin and buffin and singin that song. All the little girls on Jay Bird's St., Love to here the robin go 'tweet, tweet tweet!' Rockin' Robin. Tweet-tweet-tweetle-dee! Rockin' Robin. Tweet-tweet, tweetle-dee! Mama's in the kitchen, stirrin' that rice. Daddy's outside just shootin' that dice. Brother's in jail, eatin' Taco Belle. Sister's outside sellin' Fruit-Cock-Tail! Rockin' Robin, Tweet-tweet-tweetle-dee!"

Then there's the Shame one. (I'm just sure everyone knows it)

Then there's Slide, which is the most fun. :D (No lyrics, except saying the number that your on.)

Then there's:
"Miss Sue. Miss Sue. Miss Sue from my Ala-bama, Ari-zona, Ala-ska. Sittin' on the r'a'cker eatin' that cracker, watchin' that clock go 'Tick-tock. Tick-tock-sha-wala-wala. Tick-tock.

Bet'cha can't see me!" And then you freeze. Lol

Then there's one me and my friends made up:
"This thing goes, Down down, baby. Down down the roller coaster. Sweet sweet, baby. I'll never let you go. If you wanna kiss me, just say you love me. Shimmy-shimmy cocoa puff, shimmy-shimmy ride. Shimmy-shimmy cocoa puff, shimmy-shimmy ride. I like ice cream. I like tea. I like a boyfriend, he likes me! So step back **white boy** you ain't shy. I bet'cha five dollars I can beat'cha behind. Said last night, the night before. I met my boyfriend at the candy store. He bought me ice cream, he bought me cake; he brought me home with a belly ache. I said 'Mamma, mamma! I'm so sick! Call the docter--QUICK QUICK QUICK! Docter, Docter, shall I die?' 'Just close your eyes and count to five.' Said, 'One, two, three, four, five. I'M ALIVE!' 'See that house up on the hill? That's where me and my boyfriend live. So cut the ice cream, cut the cake, come on, baby, let's celebrate!' Said, '1, 2, 3, 4, I'm a alive on channel 5, Scooby-doo on Channel 2, Frakenstein on Channel 9, and a big fat lady on Channel 80 and all the rest on PBS( or CBS)"

He bought me ice cream, he bought me cake
He brought me home with a tummy ache!
Mama, Mama, I feel sick
Call the doctor quick quick quick
Doctor, Doctor, will I die
Count to five and you'll be alive!

I know there were alot more of these does anyone remember any??


Not last night
But the night before
Twenty-four robbers came a-knocking at my door
Opened up the door and let one in
Hit him on the head with a rolling pin

I've seen this thread for awhile now and been curious:  Are these chants/chanteys/whatever used for jump rope or hopscotch?  I'm not sure I remember much clapping back in the day.

Many of them are hand clappig rhymes.  This takes at least two people and there are at least wo patterns that are clapped.

version 1
clap hands
slap right hands together
clap hands
slap left hands together
clap hands
slap both hands together


version 2 (more common to me)

hold right hand up about shoulder height, palm down
hold left hand about waist height palm up
partner does the same

move right hand down and left hand up to meet with partners hands somewhere in the middle
slap both hands together
clap hands
repeat the right and left hand thing


do these instructions make sense?

And speaking of "outa line" songs...the guys used to sing...

"I pledge allegiance to the flag,
Michael Jackson is a f*g,
Pepsi Cola burned him up
Now he drinks 7-up
7-up made him pale
Now he drinks ginger ale
Ginger ale made him sick
Now he drinks chocolate Quik."


Ours went like this:

"I pledge allegiance to the flag,
Michael Jackson is a f*g,
Coco Cola burned him up
Now he's drinkin' 7 up
7 up has no caffine
Now he's drinkin'
Listerine
Listerine green as grass]
Now it's time to kick your @$$ (we usally play this in a large circle and when we started getting close to the word @$$ we woul sort of slow down and when we got to @$$ the last person (slapper) who was going to hit the next person hand would try to hit it as hard as they could before the person move their hand out of the way so the slapper would slap their own hand.) If that makes sense.

I think there was more but I forget.  Anyone else ever heard of this?

she named him Tiny Tim
She put him in the bathtub

He drank up all the water
he ate up all the soap

Mrs Lucy called the doctor

"I know a girl called High Shoe Hannah
The boys in the football team go H.S.H.
How's your mother
All right, White
Died in the fish shop
Last night,
What did she die of?
Raw fish,
How did she die?
Like this,"

and...

"I went to a Chinese Restaurant
To buy a loaf of bread, bread, bread
He wrapped it up in a five pound note
And this is what he said, said, said

King does a bow
