Subject: RE: Children's rhyme: When Susie Was A Baby
Thanks for sharing that example, GUEST,Tylar.

I suppose your use of the word "sucker" instead of "lollipop" could be a clue as to where you don't live. I didn't know that candy on a stick was called "suckers" until I moved to Western Pennsylvania. I'm not saying that's where you live, since I'm sure that other areas call "lollipops" suckers. But where I grew up {in New Jersey} a 'sucker' was someone who other people took advantage of...

Anyway, that's neither here nor there...The main thing I want to say is thanks.

Also, don't forget to check out other Mudcat threads {discussions} on children's rhymes. You'll find a partial listing at the top of the page under the heading "Related Threads".
