@Ahone:

We had that one too!! Where are you from? I wonder if it’s a regional thing.

In general, gross-factor or vulgarity in some of them doesn’t bother me. Kids love to say naughty things when their parents aren’t around.

bahahahaa!!! I’ve never heard of the UK version. We always did “eeny meany miney moe, catch a tiger by the toe, if he hollers let him go, eany meany miny moe.” then we added on this weird, “my mother said to pick the very best one and you are not it” song, and I have no idea where that came from.

then there was “bubble gum bubble gum in a dish, how many pieces do you wish?” and whoever it landed on had to pick a number, and you went around that many number of times and whoever it landed on was out.

does anyone remember playing Blue Aardvark? There was this counting song that you sang, and everyone stood around in a circle with a partner. One person was “it” and they were in the middle. You started the song at one, and counted to a hundred, and the person in the middle would run to a pair and take the place of one of the partners. The person who’s place they took was now “it” and they had to run across the circle and separate another group and so on until the song finished. It works best when you have a HUGE group (like 50 people) so the circle is wide. Whoever was the “odd man out” when the song was done was “it”. The song really cute and went something like “one blue aardvark, 2 blue aardvark, three and four and five blue ardvark… and eventually got to “one and twenty two and twenty, three and four and five and twenty…” all the way to 100.

@mightywombat: I’m from Minnesota, so…. I don’t think it can be regional. =)

Haha we did eeny meeny, but at the end it was “you are not it”. His does sound very crude, those are words I was definitely not allowed to say as a child.

“Eeny meeny miney moe, catch a tiger by his toe, if he hollers let him go, eeny meeny miney moe. My mother told me to pick the very best one and you are not it!”

Never heard of the uk version before. I wonder how widespread that one was?? As popular over there as “eeny meeny” was for us?

@Ahone: I grew up in IA, we had that one too! 

Great green globs of greasy grimy gopher feet, mutilated monkey meat, chopped up parakeet…french fried eyeballs swimming in a pool of blood, and me without a spoon! 

WTH were we thinking?! Did anyone know Miss Suzy?

Miss Suzy had a steamboat, that steam boat had a bell *ding ding* Miss Suzy went to Heaven, that steamboat went to hell…..o operator, give me number nine, and if you disconnect me, I’ll cut off your behind…..a ‘fridgerator, there sat a piece of glass, Miss Suzy sat upon it, and cut her little ass…..k me no more questions, tell me no more lies, the boys are in the bathroom, zipping up their flies….are in the meadow, the cows are in the corn, Miss Suzy and her boyfriend, are kissing in the D-A-R-K D-A-R-K Dark! Dark! Dark! (and corn doesn’t rhyme with dark…porn, maybe?!) Kids songs are terrible!
