Here's one we used to sing when I was a genuine "Street Urchin" in Brooklyn, N.Y. in the 1930's.
To the tune of "It Aint Gonna Rain No More, No More.
Must be sung with balled up fists, Left fist over the left knee, with weight resting on right leg whilst singing the first line . This configuration changes from one side to the other with each line of the song. May only be sung by boys in short trousers, with suspenders (braces for Britts) or knickerbockers with a belt and long socks, or by girls wearing a slightly torn pretty little pink dress and a big bow in the hair.
