Thread Name: Children's rhyme: When Susie Was A Baby
Subject: RE: Children's rhyme: When Susie Was A Baby
im sixteen now but when I was i about 8 we did it a bit differently. With each addition, instead of starting at the start we worked backwards. and it when something like this:::

When Susie was a baby, a baby, a baby, when susie was a baby, she went like this: waddle waddle, waa waa.
When Susie was a toddler, a toddler, a toddler, when susie was a toddler, she went like this: paint paint, shake shake waddle waddle, waa waa
When susie was a kid, a kid, a kid, when susie was a kid she went like this: miss miss, I can't do this, paint paint, waddle waddle, waa waa
When susie was a teenager a teenager a teenager, when susie was a teenager she went like this: ooh, ah, lost my bra, left my knickers in my boyfriends car, miss miss i can't do this, paint paint, waddle waddle waa waa

i can't remember any of the rest, but yeah, we worked backwards, and we used it as a clapping game. We always made up our own ones too!
