Thread Name: Child's Game: Elastics
Subject: RE: BS: Elastics
Morticia, we sang that rhyme for clapping games:

On a mountain stands a lady
Where it is I do not know,
All she wants is gold and silver
All she wants is a nice young man.

Another good book on this subject in general is "Golden City: Scottish Children's Street Games And Songs" by James T.R. Ritchie.
