Thread Name: Folklore: Play Ground Hand Jives
Subject: RE: Folklore: Play Ground Hand Jives
Is it possible that the "I love coffee" jump rope jingle is related to the popular Ink Spots song of the 40s, "Java Jive":

I love coffee, I love tea
I love the java jive and it loves me
Coffee and tea and the jivin' and me
A cup, a cup, a cup, a cup, a cup!
