Down, down, baby, down, down, the rollercoaster.
Sweet, sweet, baby, sweet, sweet, don't let me go.
Shimmy shimmy cocopops, shimmy shimmy round.
Shimmy shimmy cocopops,
shimmy shimmy break-down!
Two chinese [not politically correct - can be altered] sitting on a fence, trying to make a dollar out of eighty-five cents. They missed! They missed! They missed like this!

Jump Jump Jump Jim Joe.
Shake your head and nod your head and tap your toe.
Round and round and round you go.
Till you find another partner and you jump jim joe.

Here comes sally walking down the alley, here comes sally all night long.
Looking down the alley, what did we see?
A big fat man from tennessee.
I bet you five dollars that you can't do this.
Lean way back, put a hump in your back, do the camel walk, do the camel walk, do the camel walk.
To the front, to the back, to the side, side, side.
To the front, to the back to the side side side.

Coming late to these web articles, but enjoying them greatly! Reading right through them! Thank you. You seem to be a great mom. I really like the way you are raising your children!

My Aunt who just passed taught my cousin and me "the spades" this way:

The spades go true love together twilights forever bring back my love to me.
What is the mea-e-e-ning - of al these flo-ow-ow-wers - they tell my sto-or-or-ry - my story of love from you to me.

When we get ma-a-a-ried where shal we li-i-i-ive in sunny spa-a-a-ain ok by me, me me me me.

I like you be-e-e-est than all the re-e-e-est* and that's my sto-or-or-ry my story of love from you to me

Our hearts go thump-a-di-ump-pa - thump-a-di-ump-pa over the love of you
Our hearts go p-o-and-w p-o-and-w p-o-and-w POW!

*I just recently learned by my mother that the real words here are "I like you best when you're undressed" obviously it was modified to be appropriate for our age group.

Miss mary mack, mack, mack.
All dressed in black, black, black.
With silver buttons, buttons, buttons
All down her back, back, back.

She asked her mother, mother, mother
For fifty cents, cents, cents
To see the elephants, elephants, elephants
Jump over the fence, fence, fence.

They jumped so high, high, high
They touched the sky, sky, sky
And they never came back, back, back
Till the fourth of july, ly, ly


That's how I remember singing it. All these were jump rope songs when I was little.

This is the one I grew up with. My Brother and I couldnt remember the ending when we were little, so we had made up this new one: (its from years and years ago)


Miss Susie had a steamboat,
The steamboat had a bell; (Ding Ding)
Miss Susie went to Heaven, the steamboat went to-
Hello operator, just give me number nine;
And if you disconnect me, I'll chop off your-
Behind the 'frigerator, there was a piece of glass.
Miss Susie sat upon it and cut her big fat-
Ask me no more questions, I'll tell you no more lies:
The boys are in the bathroom, pulling down their-
Flies are in the kitchen, bees are in the park,
Miss Susie and her Boyfriend are kissing in the-
D-A-R-K, D-A-R-K, dark, dark, -

Dark is like a movie,
A movie’s like a show,
A show is like a TV Set, and that is all-
I Know I know my mother,
I know I know my pa,
I know I know my sister with the forty-acre bra!

My mother is Godzilla,
My father is King Kong,
My brother is the stupid one that made up this dumb –

Song about a parrot,
Song about a mouse,
I’ve really had enough of you,
I'm going to my house-

Is in the suburbs,
The suburbs’ in the world,
This is really quite a tale you know,
My lies are all unfurled!

Tori

I had a bit longer version:

Miss Susie had a steamboat
The steamboat had a bell (Ding, Ding)
Miss Susie went to Heaven
The steamboat went to

Hello Operator
Please give me number nine
And if you disconnect me
I’ll kick you from

Behind the ‘fridgerator
There was a piece of glass
Miss Susie sat upon it
And broke her little

Ask me no more questions
Please tell me no more lies
The boys are in the girls room
Pulling down their

Flies are in the city
The bees are in the park
Miss Susie and her boyfriend
Are kissing in the

D-A-R-K, D-A-R-K
Dark, Dark, Dark!


Darker than the ocean
Darker than the sea
Darker than the underwear
That mommy put on me... (see!)

The dark is like a movie
A movies like a show
A show is like a T.V. screen
And that is all

I know I know my ma
I know I know my pa
I know I know my sister
With a 40 acre bra

My ma is a robber
My pa is a spy
And I’m just a little brat
That told the FBI

That my ma is a robber
My pa is a spy
And I’m just a little brat
That told a big, big lie

Now ask me no more questions
Tell me no more lies
Miss Susie told me everything
The day before she


Dyed her hair in purple
She dyed her hair in pink
She dyed her hair in polka dots
And washed it down the

Sink me in the ocean
Sink me in the sea
Sink me down the toilet
But please don’t pee on me

My mom gave me a nickel
My dad gave me a dime
My sister gave me her boyfriend
And he was Frankenstein

He made me wash the dishes
He made me wash the floor
He made me wash his underpants
So I threw him out the door

I threw him over London
I threw him over France
I threw him to Hawaii
Where he learned the hula dance

My mom is like Godzilla
My dad is like King Kong
My brother is the stupid one
Who made me sing this song


Oh hello operator
I’m calling number 10
And if you disconnect me
I’ll sing this song again

Aggerevation, rehabilitation
aggerevationg this is how you play
first you take a bowling ball then you roll it down the hall
hit your dad and make him mad wo-o-oh-o-oh
Aggerevation, rehabilitation
aggerevationg this is how you play
Then you take a garden hose then you shove it up your nose
Turn it it and then your gone. wo-o-oh-o-oh
Aggerevation, rehabilitation
aggerevationg this is how you play
Then you take a pillow case and you put it on your face
go to bed wake up dead. wo-o-oh-o-oh
Aggerevation, spreads across the nation
aggerevationg that was how you play

On top of Old Smokey
All covered with sand,
I shot my poor teacher,
With a green rubber band.

I shot her with pleasure,
I shot her with pride,
I couldn't have missed her,
She was 40 feet wide.

Such are the preoccupations of a second grader in the 70s. Of course there was always:

Comet.
It makes your teeth turn green.
Comet.
It tastes like gas-o-line.
Comet.
It makes you vomit.
So go buy Comet
And vomit
To-day.
(To the whistling tune from Bridge Over River Kwai)

I know it this way

Charlie Brown was walking down the street and saw a girl he'd really like to meet, so he bought her a pickle but the pickel was sour, so he gave her a flower, but the flower was dead and this is what she said... itsy bitsy soda pop itsy bitsy doo, itsy bisty soda pop the boys(or girls)love you!!!

Cool page
Do you remember any of these?

Fatty Fatty 2 by 4 couldn't fit through the bathroom door so he pee'd on the floor, licked it up and did some more....

On top of spaghetti, all covered with cheese, I lost my poor meatball when somebody sneezed.
It roll off of the table, and onto the floor, and then my poor meatball, rolled out of the door.
... I'm sure there's more but can't remember the rest.

Glory glory hallelujiah, teacher popped me with a ruler, so I shot her in the b*tt with a loaded coconut, and she ain't my teacher no more.

We also sang this while clapping:

See-see oh playmate,
Come out and play with me
And bring your dollies three
Climb up the apple tree
Slide down the rainbow
Into the cellar door
We'll be jolly friends
Forever, MORE, MORE, MORE, MORE

hey i learned this in middile school and it goes like this

theres a place in france where the naked ladies dance theres a hole in the wall where the men can see it all the way they shake is enough to kill a snake when the snake is dead you put roses on its head when the roses die you put dymonds in his eye when the dymonds crack you put mustard on his back when the mustard fades you call the king of spades and the king of spades says freeze

nicole

fey

i work in a nursery and we sing this song which is similar to miss lucy had a baby:

i had a little turtle
his name was tiny tim
i put him in the bathtub
to see if he could swim
he drank up all the water
he ate up all the soap
and now he's lying in his bed
with a bubble in his throat
bubble, bubble, bubble, pop!

we're going to the circus
we're going to the fair
to see the senioritas
with flowers in their hair
shake it shake it baby
shake it like you can
shake it like a milkshake
as fast as you can
a rumba to the bottom
a rumba to the top
and turn around and turn around
until you have to stop!

(there's actions aswel)

I thought that some of you out there may want a little cleaner version of "Ms. Susie" for the younger of our children. So here it is.

Ms. Susie had a steamboat the steamboat had a bell
Ms. Susie went to heaven, the steamboat went to-
hello operator,
pleas give me number 9,
and if you disconnect me,
I'll kick you from behind the frigerator there was a piece of glass,
Ms. Susie sat upon it and
broke her little
ask me no more questions and tell me no more lies,
the boys are in the bathroom squishing all the
flies are in the meadow,
the bees are in the park.
Ms. Susie and her friends are playing in
The dark is like the movies,
the movies like a show,
the show is like a T.V. set,
and that is all I know!
I know, I know my mommy
I know, I know my dad,
I know, I know my brother,
with the very same mother
who is yellow,
mother who is blue,
The very same mother who says “I love you too!”
So she gave me peaches, Then she gave me pares, then she gave me fifty cents
and sent me down the stairs.
I gave her back her peaches, I gave her back her pares, I gave her back her fifty cents then sent her down the stairs.

helena

tiffany

hey my name is tiffany and i am a child care worker at salamander bay N.S.W i was just reading one of your songs and i thought you might like to add the more detailed version
Miss Susie had a baby she named him "Tiny Tim",
She put him in the bathtub to see if he could swim.
He drank up all the water, he ate up all the soap,
He tried to eat the bathtub, but it got caught in his throat.


Miss Susie called the Doctor, Miss Susie called the nurse,
Miss Susie called the lady with the alligator purse.


In came the Doctor, In came the nurse, in came the Lady with the alligator purse.

Mumps said the Doctor,
Measles said the Nurse,
Chicken Pox said the Lady with the alligator purse.

Penicillian said the Doctor,
Castor Oil said the Nurse,
Pizza said the lady with the Alligator purse.

Out went the Doctor, Out went the nurse, Out went the Lady with the alligator purse.

there is also some actins to this song which i could also send you if you are interested.

Thank you i enjoyed looking through your site.
