Kids sure do like some weird stuff, lol
Here's a really long version I found. There were three.

Miss Suzy had a speed boat
The speed boat had a bell
Miss Suzy went to heaven
The speed boat went to
Hello Operator
Give me number nine
If you disconnect me
Ill kick you in the
Behind the frigerateor
There was a piece of glass
Mss Suzy sat upon it
And broke her little
Ask me no more questions
Tell me no more lies
The boys are in the bathrooms
Zipping up their
Flies are in the meadow
Bees are in the park
Miss Suzy and her boyfriend
Are kissing in the
Dark! Dark! Dark!
Darker then the ocean
Darker the the sea
Darker the the panty-hoes
My mommie puts on me
My brother is annoying
My dad is hong kong
My very little sister
Is the one who made up this
Song! Song! Song!

Sing a song of sixpence, pocket full of rye
Four and twenty blackbirds baked in a pie
When the pie was opened, the birds began to sing.
Wasn't that a dainty dish to set before the king?

The King was in his counting house, counting out his money
The Queen was in the parlour eating bread and honey
The Maid was in the garden hanging out the clothes
When down came a blackbird and snipped off her nose


The Queen of Hearts she baked some tarts
All on a summers day
The Knave of Hearts, he stole those tarts
and whisked them clean away
The King of Hearts called for the tarts
and beat the Knave full sore
The Knave of Hearts brought back the tarts
and vowed to steal no more

RED ROVER RED ROVER LET WHOSIS COME OVER!


I never heard of okka bokka boo and we certainly didn't include the n-word in any of our rhymes. Our picking rhyme went

Eeny meeny miney mo
Catch a tiger by the toe
If he hollers let him go
eeny meeny miney mo
My mother told me to pick the very best one and Y-O-U spells YOU

Sometimes it was a monkey instead of a tiger. Which reminds me.

Five little monkeys jumpin' on the bed.
One fell off and bumped his head
Mama called the doctor and the doctor he said:
"No more monkeys jumping on the bed!


Ladybug ladybug fly away home
Your house is on fire, your children are gone
All except one - her name is Charlie Anne
She hid under the frying pan


Fuzzy Wuzzy was a bear
Fuzzy Wuzzy had no hair
Fuzzy Wuzzy wasn't very fuzzy, was he?



I went down to my grandma's farm
A great big goose chased me all around the barn
She chased me up the old oak tree
And this is what she said to me:
"I like peaches, I like jam,
I like bacon and a great big ham
I like coffee, I like tea,
I'd like you to jump with me


Columbus sailed the Ocean Blue
In Fourteen Hundred and Ninety Two
He sailed to the left and he sailed to the right
He sailed back to Spain for to take a wife.


Mary Mary quite contrary
How does your garden grow?
With silver bells and cockle shells
and pretty maids all in a row.


Teddy bear, teddy bear, turn around
Teddy bear, teddy bear, touch the ground
Bow to the east, bow to the west
Bow to the one you love the best



Six little rabbits sleepin' in the bed
All snuggled up when the little one said
ROLL OVER ROLL OVER
So they all rolled over when they heard him shout
and the one on the outside - fell out.

Five little (and on to no little rabbits)


All around the cobbler's bench
the monkey chased the weasel
The monkey thought 'twas all in fun
POP! goes the weasel

A penny for a spool of thread
A penny for a needle
That's the way the money goes
POP! goes the weasel



I had a little puppy. 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 a bar of soap.
The next thing you know he had a bubble in his throat.
In came the doctor, in came the nurse
In came a lady with an alligator purse
Out went the doctor, out went the nurse
Out went the lady with the alligator purse


On top of spaghetti, all covered with cheese
I lost my poor meatball when somebody sneezed
It rolled of the table and onto the floor
And then my poor meatball rolled out of the door
It rolled through the garden and under a bush
And then my poor meatball was nothing but moosh

The moosh was as tasty, as tasty could be
And early next summer it grew to a tree
The tree was all covered with beautiful moss
It grew lovely meatballs and toe-may-toe sauce
So if you eat spaghetti, all covered with cheese,
Hold on to your meatballs and don't ever sneeze!



Over hill over dale we will dust the dusty trail
as our dust mops go dusting along
Over here, over there, even in our underwear
As those dust mops go dusting along

For its SWEEP SWEEP SWEEP
We will never weep
As we are singing this song
In dust so deep we'll never fall asleep
As those dust mops go dusting along.

Found a peanut, found a peanut, found a peanut last night
Last night I found a peanut, found a peanut last night.
It was rotten, it was rotten, it was rotten last night,
Last night it was rotten, it was rotten last night.
Ate it anyway etc
Called the Dr etc
Died anyway, died anyway etc
Kind of depressing ��

I'm surprised Farmer in the Dell and Bingo weren't mentioned.

Fuzzy Wuzzy lost his crop, in a north pole barber shop
FUzzy Wuzzy wasn't fuzzy, was he?
They say that all the seals in Hudson's Bay envied Fuzzy's fuzz
But when they cut his rug away, he wasn't what he used to was.

Every night when Father comes home the monkey's on the table.
Take a stick and knock him off, Pop goes the weasel.
Half a pound of tupenny rice, a quarter pound of treacle,
That's the way the money goes, Pop goes the weasel.

Ooey Gooey was a worm, a little worm was he.
He sat upon the railroad track, the train he did not see.
Ooey Gooey.

I think my Maternal Grandmother made this one up. I've never heard it repeated by anyone ever.

What a funny thing a frog are
He ain't got no tail almost hardly
When he runs, he jumps
And when he jumps
He sits on his tail that he ain't got almost hardly.

Another one that was in the family was a semi magic trick. You spit glue two tiny pieces of paper onto both your pointer finger nails. When the bird flies away, you switch your pointer with your middle finger in midair.

The sing songgoes like this:

Two little dickie bids sitting in a tree
One named Jack, one named Jill
Fly away Jack (finger goes up and switch quickly, bring different finger back to position. Paper is gone)
Fly away Jill (same as above)

Come back Jack (finger goes up and switch quickly, bring finger back to position. Paper is back)
Come back Jill (same as above)

Little ones are thinking you're magic. They don't notice that the fingers are different or that you've tucked the finger with the paper into your palm. Just be careful you don't knock the paper off your finger nail.

and Bingo's on the box ....'

Sing it if you know it ....

I don't remember that one but I do remember another Cracker Jack song in a commercial.

Crack a box of Cracker Jacks,
You're bound to crack a smile.

I couldn't find that one but here's a one of the great ones with Jack Gilford.

Does anyone remember Mary had a Steamboat? It went on forever and ever and I only remember bits and pieces. We loved it because at the age of ten or so we thought it was very risque
Something about a a place in France where *someting something* dance and the dance they do *something somthing*( that rhymes with 'do') then later it goes into

Mary had a steamboat
the steamboat had a bell
mary pulled the wrong cord
and blew herself to
Hell-o operator,
give me number nine
if you disconnect me
I'll kick you in the hind
I think it started out with "Miss Mary' but I can't remember the whole thing either.

eta.. I think I found it..

Miss Mary had a steamboat,
the steamboat had a bell.
Miss Mary 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 yellow curtain
there was a piece of glass.
Miss Mary sat upon it.
It went right up her

Ask me no more questions,
please tell me no more lies.
The boys are in the bathroom
zipping up their

Flies are in the city,
the bees are in the park.
Boys and girls are kissing
in the D-A-R-K

Dark is like a movie,
a movie’s like a show.
A show is like a TV screen
and that is all

I know, I know my mother,
I know I know my pa,
I know I know my sister
with the alligator

Brother’s like a sister,
a sister’s like an aunt.
An aunt is like a relative
who likes to rave and rant.

Hello, Operator. Give me number nine. And if he doesn't answer, give me back my dime.

Bluebells, cockleshells, eevy, ivy over. My mother sent me to the store and this is what I went for .......

There was a dog sat on the back porch and Bingo was his name. There was a dog sat on the back porch and Bingo was his name. B-I-N-G-O, B-I-N-G-O, B-I-N-G-O and Bingo was his name-O.

Oh, Stewball was a racehorse and I wish he were mine. He never drank water, he always drank wine. Oh, I went down to the racetrack and I bet on the old gray mare. But, if I'd bet on Stewball, I'd have money to spare.

I, too, had never heard the word "taradiddle". All along I thought I was a woman of the world when I've actually been culturally deprived. Is taradiddle regional or is it used everywhere?
