My boyfriend;s name is Fatty
HE comes from Cincinnati;
With a curled up nose
And twenty-eight toes
And that's the way my story goes!!

(The tune probably has a more dignified origin, but that's the playground lyric I learned to it.)

Just occurred to me I've heard that recently in a completely different context - Emilie Autumn's brilliant and twisted "Miss Lucy Had Some Leeches" (it's on YouTube).

I agree with Amos. I got this song from my mother-in-law. Her lyrics are something like:

I am a pretty little Dutch girl,
as pretty as can be.
And all the boys in my hometown
go wickedy-wack for me!
My boyfriend's name is [fill in name]
he comes from [fill in boyfriend's childhood home]
with [something, something] nose
and [something, something] toes
and that's the way my story goes!

Sorry I couldn't remember all of the lyrics.

Here's a blue clicky:

We used this tune in a jump-rope rhyme (near Chicago, 1950's.)

Sorry, I don't know its true origin. It sounds like the kind of music one hears at the circus.

After listening to Jack Campin's link to "Miss Lucy had some leeches", I realized that I have also heard this tune used for the song that I know as "Lulu had a steamboat" ("Lulu had a steamboat, the steamboat had a bell, Lulu went to heaven, ..."), but which I have also heard as "Miss Lucy had a steamboat". I firmly maintain that this tune is **not** the correct tune for "Lulu had a steamboat". Opinions vary.
