Subject: RE: Origins: Down by the Banks of the Hanky Panky
Thanks for posting those versions. I appreciate it.
This may be a good time to once again say thanks to everyone who has posted the versions of "Down By The Banks Of The Hanky Panky" on this thread. And thanks to those who also posted performance instructions, demographical information, and other comments about this rhyme.
When I started this discussion, I certainly didn't think that "Down By The Banks of The Hanky Panky" was this widely known and some many different versions. But so far, more people have posted to this thread than any other thread on a specific children's rhyme.
Not that this is a contest or anything. I'm just sayin.
