Subject: RE: I'm Rubber . You're Glue: Children's Rhymes
Am I the only one on this side of the ocean who doesn't know any of those songs that Snuffy and Foolestroupe are talking about?

Lyrics, please!


I wonder if anyone else remembers these rhymes from their childhood or knows if kids are still saying them today {I remember saying these in Atlantic City, New Jersey in the 1950s, but I'm sure they are much older}:

Liar, Liar,
pants on fire.


Where's [someone's name]
In her skin.
When she jumps out. You jump in.


What's your name?
Puddin Tane.
Ask me again,
and I'll tell you the same.


See my pinkie.
See my thumb.
See my fist.
You better run.
