I'm a Nut

I'm a nut (clap clap**)
in a hut (clap clap)
I show my butt in pizza hut so what?!
I'm craz-y
I'm fool-ish
I'm crazy, I'm foolish, I'm crazy, I'm foolish so what!

(the left and right hand clapping each others would facing horizontally but the opposite of the other** ex: my left on top of other players right, her left on top of my right)

(Don't remember the title to this next one or the first half of it so I'll just post what I know)
Eighteen nineteen blueberry street
I told my mama what he did and this is was she said
Girls go to college to get more knowledge
boys go to jupiter to get more stupider (how ironic lol)
boys drink beer to get more weird
girls drink wine to get more fine

For 'Down Down Baby' our ordering was different here in Atlanta
we did
Let's get the rhythm of the head ding dong... etc (the ding dong part came first)
"put it all to together what do ya get
ding dong (head side to side)
clap clap
stomp stomp
hooot dooog (move your body like a snake)"
and then did it all in reverse of course
"do it all backwards and what do you get
hooot doog
stomp stomp
clap clap
ding dong, other than that everything was the same (except we didn't say color, we said black, must be an era thing)

For 'I don't wanna go to Mexico' we put Shame Shame Shame in front of it (the back of our left and right hand would be against each others and we used our outside hands to clap our own hands that were against each others and meet each others hand at the top, our own in the middle and then each others at the bottom again)
