Cool Old School Hand Games

Who remembers:
SLIDE?
Twill lil lee (or HOWever it was pronounced)

Any SLIDE champs on the block?

3. Down By The River (with a hanky-panky, while the bullfrogs jump from bank to bank... )
4. Bo-Bo-Skee-Wotten-Totten (please tell me somebody remembers this)

I think I'm with you for your #1-3! And CT's Twill lil lee!
Man I used to love me some Down By the River....speaking of which, I was trying to teach a friend (in college ) how to play the game, and one of the girls on my hall came to play and we ended up arguing for almost an hour cause she wanted to say that the song said..."while the BULLDOGS jumped from bank to bank" I'm like, WhenTH did Bulldogs start jumping from bank to bank? ...We decided to call in someone else off the hall and this girl said that she thought it said "Bulldogs" too! I was like, I don't know who taught them that version, but they needed to be slapped! Now I'm glad that I know someone else, other than the people I grew up with, that knows the correct version of the song!

Cool POST THE LYRICS

How about you all post the lyrics so we can see because some of them sound familiar but if I had the words they might confirm for me if I really do know them.

I just played Slide with my little cousins when I was back in Illinois for Christmas. My sister and I could play Slide very fast for a long time. And now they got me doing "Miss Sue". They are so cute when they do it. Even my little two-year-old cousin can do all of "Miss Sue".

Others...

1. Down Down Baby
2. Have you ever, ever, ever...
3. Miss Susie (different from Miss Sue)
4. One about McDonald's (can't remember all of it)
5. Three sailors
6. See see my playmate
7. Rockin Robin

That's all I can remember for now.

See now, I was the West Philadelphia Champion of "Have a Coke and a Smile." That was my game! I loved Slide and Miss Mary Mack too!

We also used to play two other games that really don't have names. I don't know if anyone else would remember them.

1. We played with the song that started "down by the river in the hanky panky, and the bullfrogs jump from bank to bank"

2. The other we played with four people and we called it "Mamma-said-a-he'd-a-said-a"

Did anyone else play these ones?

How could I 4get...

Ms. Lucy. Man, this one was my favorite. Is this the same as Miss Susie? I've never heard that one.

Anyway, here's the lyrics to Ms. Lucy:

Ms. Lucy had a baby, she named him Tiny Tim
She put him in the bathtub to see if he could swim
He drunk up all the water, he ate up all the soap
He tried to eat the bathtub, but it wouldn't go down his throat
Ms. Lucy called the doctor, the doctor called the nurse
Ms. Lucy called the doctor with the the alligator purse

I also remember the McDonald's one too.

Talking ummm yeah... back on topic

HOT HANDS!!!

You all remember that?

And THUMP!!!

You've got all of us reminiscing...
Chinese Jump rope... double dutch... Roller skating...
I was a young tom-boy... Tackle football in the streets... Climbing trees and the like.

The winters, they seemed, warmer,
The summers brighter... ahhh
Caaaaannn it be that it was aaaaaaallll so simple then?
Has time rewritten every linnnnneee
And if we had the chance to do it all again
Tell me,
Would we?
Could we?
Meeeeeemmmmoooorrries, light the corners of my mind...

I love that song
