Thread Name: Folklore: Where's your money? In my pocket
Subject: RE: Folklore: Where's your money? In my pocket
I found this thread looking for the spelling of a nursery rhyme that my mom used to sing to us and that variation is not here. So if anyone is interested:

See Saw Margery Daw
Who's there?
Teddy bear.
What does teddy want to drink?
A glass of ... apple juice!

I have specific memories of being on the being on the swing set and her swinging it slowly with each syllable. She would pause before "apple juice" then give us a real push which would cause a lot of laughing.

She did the same thing when tickling us. Preparing to tickle up until the pause then tickling afterward.

I'm from southern New England if this helps. My mother was born in the 60s. I don't know where she learned it from.
