Subject: RE: Lyr Add: Down Down Baby-Race in Children's Rhymes
Very cool to finally find a historical resource of the musically interesting trauma I experienced in 1st grade 1971 North East Houston Texas. I’ve asked everybody all my life and they’d never heard the song sung to me after I was beat up by the neighbor children. I was an easy to beat up white kid (actually Hispanic) so they did it as often as possible until I stopped walking to and from school.
Me with a bloody nose crying on the ground would hear:
White patty white patty you don’t shine
You got bumps on your booty like Frankenstein.
There were 2 or 3 other verses that I can’t recall but that one would make me laugh. I tried to laugh with them in hopes I could be friends.
Thanks for this cathartic resource!
