GUEST,Neil Lowe Naughty kids' greatest hits II (153* d) RE: Naughty kids' greatest hits II 07 Apr 00


Seems like the following was the chanted finale (or was coupled) to another ditty:

Three, six, nine,
The goose drank wine,
The monkey chewed tobacco
On the streetcar line.

The line broke,
The monkey got choked,
And they all went to heaven
In a little rowboat.

Maybe this was one of those jump rope rhymes. To quote dick greenhaus in Part I of this thread: if this chant qualifies as an example of "the purest form of folk," then this contribution should put to bed the controversy over whether rap is folk. Not to rouse any sleeping dogs or anything.

Neil
