I knew that Macy’s one too,…
I knew that Macy’s one too, but we said Mexico!
The way we played it, you would put your hands together with them pointing toward the other person, the other person would put theirs together, and you put your hands side by side. To clap, you would each put one hand up but still facing sideways and clap the other person’s hand, then each go down. When the words were 3 together, you’d clap the same hands 3 times instead of switching. It got pretty hard when you tried to go fast!
I don’t wanna go to Mexico no more-more-more.
There’s a big fat policeman at my door-door-door.
He took me by the collar,
and made me pay a dollar,
That’s why I don’t go to Mexico no more-more-more.
It made less sense than Macy’s, but it rhymes better!
I also know this one:
I met my boyfriend at the candy shop.
He bought me candy, he bought me cake. He bought me home with a bellyache!
Mama, mama, I’m so sick! Call the doctor, quick-quick-quick!
Doctor, doctor, what to do? (or something like that, I always get that part mixed up with the “let’s hear the rhythme” one)
Count to five and you’ll be alive.
One, two, three, four, five. I’m alive!
Six, seven, eight, nine, ten. I’m dead again!
