Little Sally Walker
Walking down the street
She didn't know what to do so she stopped
in front of me
She said
Hey Girl Do Your Thing
Do Your Thing Do Your Thing
Hey Girl Do your thing and
Switch!

(this game is played, when the kids gather in a circle a "Sally Walker" is chosen and she walks in a circle then she stops in front of someone and starts dancing and the other girl mimicks her, then by the end of the song, they switch places, and the girl is now sally walker the game repeats until the girls get tired and they all quit)

I said a Boom Chicka Boom
I said a Boom Chicka Chicka Boom
I said a Boom Chicka Rocka Chicka Rocka Boom
Alright Okay Now were gonna do it

(yeah not a clapping game but still something popular in Michigan)
