This is one of those never-ending repeat-every-line songs I learned in Brownies that always made us giggle: The cutest boy I ever saw Was drinking cider Dear through a straw Repeat I asked him if He’d show me how to sip some cider dear through a straw Repeat He said of course he’d show me how to sip some cider dear through a staw Repeat First cheek to cheek then jaw to jaw we’d sip some cider dear through a straw Repeat But now and then that straw would slip and we’d sip cider dear lip to lip Repeat That’s how I got my mother-in-law and 49 kids to call me Ma Repeat The moral of this little joke is don’t sip cider JUST SIP COKE!
Does anyone know the 1980’s Denver-area version of the rollercoaster song: Down down baby down by the rollercoaster Sweet sweet baby oh how I love you Kissin’ all your boyfriends (naughty, naughty) Jumpin’ out the window (crazy, crazy) Something, something, lazy, lazy etc? I can’t remember the words and it’s driving me nuts! Can anyone help?

this is in response to what JPC mentioned about rikki tikki tembo and the other song. in Girl Scouts we sang a song that was the American version: Chorus: Eddie-gootchie-gatchi-gamie-toast-a-nammie-toast-a-namme-sammi-gammie-wacki-brown.*with hand motions of course!* fell into the well fell into the well fell into the deep dark well. i know it as suzy jones
This page is great, I really love The Cat Came back, and i remember the down down baby song. And the Ta ra ra boom di dah, … Does anyone remember this one: So,So Suck your toe, all the way to mexico, while you’re there, brush your hair, don’t forget your underwear.
Here are two I remember: Geez, memories, LOL! Ta ra ra boom di ay I met a boy today He paid me fifty cents to go behind the fence He knocked me to the ground His D### went round and round My mom was so surprised to see my tummy rise My dad was full of joy to see a baby boy I know, it’s a bad one, sorry! The other one is very similar to bzeiger on Sunday, December 5, 1999. Here’s the version I remember: Fee Fee fi Fee fi fo fum kumala kumala kumala vista no no no no not to vista eenie meenie disoleenie ooh ah ah boleenie atchy cotchy cumaratchy ah ah ah ish kidely oaten boaten bo bo ba ditten dotten watten tatten shh! What that all is supposed to mean or how you actually spell all that, I don’t know. It was just fun to say and as fast as you could!! LOL!! Any body know the meaning or anything about it?
And I meant to say that during ‘shimmy shimmy’ you put your hands on your knees, knock your knees and swap your hands like in the charleston. During ‘coco pop’ and ‘pow’ you throw your hands in the air. I first heard this from my nieces beside the Blue Pool in Devon. xxx
Down by the banks of the hanky panky Where the bullfrogs leap from bank to banky With a fee fi fo fum Who’s got the little one Oooo! ——— Down down baby Down the roller coaster Sweet sweet baby Wouldn’t want to lose you know Shimmy shimmy coco pops Shimmy shimmy pow Shimmy shimmy coco pops Shimmy shimmy pow Poor old grandma Sick in bed Called the doctor And the Doctor said Let’s get the rhythm in the head Ding dong (wag head) Let’s get the rhythm in the hands (clap clap) Let’s get the rhythm in the feet (stamp stamp) Let’s get the rhythm in the hooooot dog (rotate pelvis suggestively) Put them altogether and what do you get? ding dong, clap clap, stamp stamp, hot dog Put them all backwards and what do you get? Hot dog, stamp stamp, clap clap, dong ding. (Once you get good at it you can do it faster and faster.) See see my baby I cannot play with you For I have got the flu Chicken pox and measles too We slid down drainpipes In 1952 And we’ll be best of friends For ever more, more, shut that door, eat that rat that’s on that floor! —— Eeeny meeny dessameeny You are the one ameeny Educated, liberated (slap buttocks on each down beat) I like you Down down baby down down the rollercoaster Didn’t do the dishes lazy, lazy ????? crazy, crazy [more verses here then back to eeny meeny] Still trying to learn this one from my eight year old god-daughter who know many, but some of them are not for adult consumption, being too
