Georgie Porgie, Pudding and pie,Kissed the girls and made them cry,When the boys came out to play,He kissed them too 'cause he was gay.
And then there is the Andrew Dice Clay version, which will get me banned if I post it here.

Daniel Boone was a man, yes a big man, but the bear was bigger and he ran .... (perhaps you know the rest .... )

BTW - this is somewhat self deprecating according to the one drop rule ...

A pretty yukky song, which is probably why we sang it so much.


then there was:

I stand before you to sit behind you to tell you something I know nothing about.

Admission is free-you pay at the door. Pull up a chair and sit on the floor.

There was more but that's as much as I remember.
Good one. I remember that.

You're in the Army now.

I was looking for the exact words because unlike DH, I had not committed this one to memory, and came across this link:

Ha! We sang that as:

Pepsi cola hits the spot
Ties your belly in a knot
Tastes like water
Tastes like wine
Oh my gosh its turpentine!

Oh THANK YOU!

Once I started reading these I could here me singing this again. In my mind all the words and the tune came back. Amazing!

Just a note....Baa, baa, black sheep have you any wool....was a masked statement about the Master and others taking all the hard earned wool from the rancher/farmer and none was left for them. It was in the day when you paid the Master a portion of what you grew or tended and it became more and more until the rancher/farmer was still poor and the Master became richer and richer off the backs of the working class

Lord, that must be from the 1700's!

Sorry to say...no, I see few kids singing these songs anymore or skipping rope, playing patty cake or making mud pies. What a shame!

As a child, my daughter loved taradiddles and could sing them for hours days and nights! This thread made me miss her terribly.

Since today is Valentine's day, I remembers another of her favorite songs. It's not a taradiddle but it is just simply wonderful

Skidamarink a-dink, a-dink,
Skidamarink a-doo,
I love you. (2x)
I love you in the morning,
And in the afternoon;
I love you in the evening,
And underneath the moon.
Oh, skidamarink a-dink, a-dink,
Skidamarink a-doo,
I love you.

One fell off and broke his head.
Call for the doctor and the doctor said
"NO MORE MONKEYS JUMPING ON THE BED"


9 little monkeys......
8 little monkeys.....


or


there was something that had the words:
"Call for the doctor,
Call for the nurse,
Call for the lady with
the alligator purse."


I finally figured out who "the lady with the alligator purse" was. She was the public health official who would come to the house and put a "quarantine" sign on the front door when there was a communicable disease present (measles, chicken pox, scarlet fever, etc.) I guess the doctor would call her after he had made a house call (you guys are probably too young to remember "house calls".)
That's from Minnehaha, a jump rope song that goes; Mini mini ha ha went see her papa, papa died, mini mini cried. Mini had a baby, his name was tiny Tim, she put him in a bathtub to see if he could swim. He drank up all the water, he even ate the soap, he tried to swallow the bathtub but it wouldn't go down his throat. Mini called a doctor Mini called a nurse Mini called a lady with an alligator purse. Measles said the doctor, mumps said the nurse, flu said the lady with the alligator purse. out walked the doctor, out walked the nurse, out walked the lady with the alligator purse.
