Since we have posted examples of children's rhymes that mention "Coca Cola", I feel it's only fitting that we post rhymes that mention "Pepsi". Here's one:

my mother your motha
live down da street
18, 19 marble street
and evry nite
dey had a fite
and dis is wat dey told me

girls are sexy drink lots of pepsi
boys are rotten chew on sum cotten
ishy wishy lollypop
ishy wishy woo
ishy wishy lollypop
da guyz luv YOU

This handclap rhyme with the "girls drink pepsi to get sexy" line appears to be rather popular {in my area anyway}. And I bet that verse has increased Pepsi's sales.

Here's a true story about that:
Two years ago, a group of six 10-13 year old girls did a presentation with me & my daughter on African American children's rhymes. Before the presentation, I took them and two of the girls' 5 year old brother to Pizza Hut. In addition to their pizza, every one of these children ordered "Pepsi". When I commented about that, one of the girls said "It's because of that rhyme". I said "What rhyme?" and she started recited {and the other girls joined in} that "girls drink pepsi/to get sexy" rhyme. That's the first time I had heard that rhyme.

I guess the five year old boy ordered pepsi in imitation of his older sisters and the other girls. Or maybe-even at that young age-he wanted girls to be sexy.
