In the early 1950's in Kitchener, Ontario, the girls in my Lancaster Street neighbourhood played this ball bouncing game and sang:

One, two, three, a lairy
I spy sister Sairy
Sitting under a bungalairy
Eating choc'late candy.

If we could get away with it, we bounced our red, white and blue sponge rubber balls off the wide door of our next door neighbour's garage.
