Subject: RE: I'm Rubber. You're Glue: Children's Rhymes
Azizi - An observation about the gross stuff. I don't remember any of those types of songs from the schoolyard - however, they were very popular at summer camp. Don't know why the difference, but there was always a lot of singing at camp and not much chanting, but lots of chanting in the schoolyard (especially in the girls' games) and not much singing. Don't know how this jibes with other people's experience ...

I'm talking white kids here, but I have a hunch you might find the same things with black kids where you can find a bunch who go to summer camp.
