Subject: RE: I'm Rubber. You're Glue: Children's Rhymes
Hello, GuestSpain.

Here's a second verse that was performed by 'urban' high school cheerleaders on the 1986 movie "Wildcat":

M-O-M-M-A
That is how you got that way
Your Momma
Hey Hey*
Your Momma.

* Instead of "Hey Hey", I've also seen examples of "Yeah Yeah" or "What What"

-snip-

Btw, I think that "Wildcats" got "U-G-L-Y" from the kids. But I'd bet that the rhyne gained in popularity because of its inclusion in that movie. The earliest date I've been given for this rhyme is from the 1980s {Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania}, but it might have been chanted earlier than that in Pittsburgh or elsewhere}.

Here's another example that was sent to my website http://www.cocojams.com/taunting_rhymes.htm :

U-G-L-Y {Version #2}
U-G-L-Y
You aint got no alibi U ugly Yeah Yeah U ugly
M-A-M-A how did U get that way UR mama Yeah Yeah UR mama
D-A-D-D-Y U dont even kno the guy UR daddy Yeah Yeah UR daddy
