MARY MARY MACK MACK MACK: Clapping Games








Reta Sceeter checked the meter

Lucy Goosey eating moosey

Fannie Connie looks like honey

Jackie Mackie likes Palacky! [Thanks to Sydney.]






I am a little fresh pot

As cute as I can be be

And all the boys around my
way

Would like to get with me me

My boyfriend's name is Jello

He lives in
Alibello

With a ring in his nose with twenty-five holes

And this is how the
story goes

One day I was a walkin

My boyfriend was a talkin

To the ugliest
girl in the wide world

And the shortest hair you ever seen

He said "I K-I-S-S kiss you

I M-I-S-S miss you

I W-A-N-T want you."

So I went to a lake and
caught me a snake

And then I caught a tummy ache. [Thanks to Whitney B.]





I met my boyfriend at the candy store.

He bought me some ice cream and a candy bar.

He brought me home with a belly ache.

Mama, Mama, I feel sick

Call the doctors quick, quick, quick.

Doctor,doctor will I die?

1,2,3,4,5 I'm alive! [Thanks to Kayla B.]







Double double this this,

Double double that that,

Double this, double that,

Double double this that.



Imstructions: Hold your hands up, your fingers
pointing to the ceiling, as if you're showing someone your new ring!

As you're saying the rhyme, turn your hands back and forth as
certain words are said.

Whenever you say "double," both hands are facing out. (So your palms
are facing you.)

Whenever you say "this," and "that," your palms are facing away from
you. It sounds simple, but it's not!!

You can use almost any compound words, like:

Double double ice ice,

Double double cream cream.

Double ice, double cream,

Double double ice cream. [Thanks to Ciara A.]






Lemonade, crunchy ice

Beat it once, beat it twice.
