Subject: RE: Lyr Add: Down Down Baby-Race in Children's Rhymes
I grew up in Canada in the 80's and there was never mention of black or white in the rhymes I heard. I did hear "two Chinese sitting on a bench though" A rhyme that was brought to mind as I read this was also "so-so suck your toe all the way to Mexico. When you're there, cut your hair and shove it down your underwear." I looked this up and found other versions but none that said shove it down your underwear. It was definitely shove it down your underwear on own playground. lol
