Recorded tunes are another category of rhymes that children used to tease other kids.

For instance, once upon a time, I was real skinny. And some not so nice kids teased me with the words to this song:

"I got a girl named Bony Moronie
She's as skinny as a stick of macaroni
Ought to see her rock and roll with her blue jeans on
She's not very fat, just skin and bones.

I love her and she loves me.
Oh how happy now we can be,
making love underneath the apple tree."


Song:   Bony Moronie (1957)
Artist: Larry Williams

I'm sure there are other recorded songs that kids used {use} to
tease others.

Can anyone think of other examples?
