Subject: RE: Folklore: Lady's aligator purse? Her own thread
I definitely remember this from my (1950's WASP suburban Chicago) childhood as a jump-rope rhyme. And yes, the "in" and "out" portions were used to facilitate the new jumper entering as the previous jumper would exit. As I recall, the mother's name in our rhyme was "Sally."
