Did you ever play clapping games?
When I was young, we always played those clapping games. For some reason, it came up the other night and I was able to tell my son all the words to Miss Mary Mack. The stuff we remember can be so weird!
Miss Mary Mack, Mack, Mack
All dressed in black, black, black
With silver buttons, buttons, buttons
All down her back, back, back
She asked her mother, mother, mother
For fifty cents, cents, cents
To see the elephants, elephants, elephants
Jump over the fence, fence, fence
They jumped so high, high, high
They touched the sky, sky, sky
And didn’t come back, back, back
Till the fourth of July, July, July
My older sister played it when she came from the Philippines?! So I sorta figure it's "universal". Her game was:
(first one said it, then the other repeated)
Cummala cummala cummala fiesta
On and on and on a fiesta
Ennie meenie decameanie do what-you-whatcha-wanna-meanie
Hotchie kotchie cumalatchie do what you want...
Do you have one you want to share?
