Thread Name: kids' game: I'm goin' down town to smoke my pipe
Subject: BS: 'I'm goin' down town to smoke my pipe,
We played a game in our neighborhood which began with a rhyme: I'm going' down town to smoke my pipe. I won't be back till broad daylight. If you let one of my children go, I'll spank you with my rubber shoe". Just happened to recall it.... it was in Michigan, probably around 1950. Anyone recall anything like this? I don't recall the details of it. We neighborhood kids played it out in the yard..........
