Thread Name: What did you sing as a kid?
Subject: RE: BS: What did you sing as a kid?
Souter, those are called variants--people get Phd's in Folklore by collecting all the different ones that they can find--I remember something like : Kindergarten baby,
Born in the gravy
Wipe your ass
With applesauce
And sell it to the Navy

(For UK readers, "ass" was the Midwestern equivalent of "arse")
