Subject: RE: kids' game: I'm goin' down town to smoke my pipe
We played this game in the 60s in Garden City, MI. (suburb of Detroit) Remember the lines "I'm goin downtown to smoke my pipe, and I won't be back till Saturday night. I'll whip you black, I'll whip you blue, especially you my daughter Sue." I can't remember the rules of the game, but it ended up in a chase like tag. I remember playing on the porch, and my sister remembers playing in the basement.My mom says we use to make a LOt of noise when we played.
