Thread Name: Children's singing games
Subject: RE: Help: Children's singing games
Some years ago, Scott Hastings, of Taftsville, Vt., published a small book called, Mary Mack/Mac all Dressed in Black, singing games and counting out rhymes of the Northeast Kingdom, the north east part of Vermont that juts out over NH. It may well be out of print by now, but you might find a copy on one of the old book sites on the Internet, or in a library.

One that we used in Scouts went;
  Oh Chester have you heard about Harry
  Just got out of the Army
  I heard he knows how to touch his toes
  Hip, Hip, Hurray for the Army
Touching, Chest, Hair, Arms, Nose, Toes, Hips, & Arms in turn.
