Subject: RE: Folklore: Play Ground Hand Jives
Here's three more examples from http://blogs.herald.com/dave_barrys_blog/2005/05/a_readers_plea.html {and there's lots more} but I thought these were interesting from a folkloric point of view:


I LEARNED:
there's a place called france
where the naked ladies dance
there's a hole in the wall
where the men can see it all
but the men don't care
cause they're wearing underwear
and the chones that they choose
cost a dollar fifty two (2007)

MY MOM LEARNED:
there's a place called Mars
where the ladies smoke cigars
and the men don't care
so they eat their underwear (1969)

MY GRANDMA LEARNED:
there's a place in France
where the ladies wear the pants
and the dance they do
is enough to kill a Jew (in racist 1936)
