oops! The short form example that I gave may indeed have been played as a partner hand clap rhyme.
Here's another example of the short, competitive form of this rhyme:
Down by the banks of hte Hanky panky
where the bull frogs jump from bank to banky
singing uuh oopp bop bop
eeeh oopp bop bop
ooh oopp bop bop
( all in a circle your right hand on top of the person to the rghts left hand and your left hand under the persons beside you, works in a chain one person claps and it goes around fast slapping each persons hand the one slapped or in the process of slapping if no one is slappe don the POW is out.)
