Thread Name: Child's Game: Elastics
Subject: RE: Child's Game: Elastics
Does anybody remember any other rhymes? I lived in Toronto, Ontario, Canada as a child. One of my best friends went to Florida and came back with the elastic game. She also brought a rhyme with her, but for the life of me, I can't find anything related to it.

I don't know how accurate it is, and I certainly am guessing at the words, but here they are as I remember them.

Yoka ana Tysa
Yoka ninety-ay
Tang in de soeboy
Sooey sooey ay

I know. It doesn't make any sense to me either, but we all sang it. Probably the words are all gibbled up, but this is the phoenitic version.
