My 7 year old came home from school the other day and shared this little ditty with us (it’s used to determine who is ‘it’ in a game of tips etc, like eeny meeny miny mo):
Michey Mouse had a house underneath the movies, when the movie started, Mickey Mouse farted, what colour was his gas? (Someone then says a colour, and you spell out the colour.)
Anyway, this sent me back to a rhyme we used to sing way back when I was a kid:
Jingle Bells, Batman smells, Robin flew away. Wonder Woman lost her bosoms flying TAA.
I’m wondering how localised these little songs are – do they belong to individual schools, or do they spread across cities? Does anyone else have kids using the Mickey Mouse one? And does anyone else remember singing about Wonder Woman somehow misplacing her breasts on a Trans Australian Airlines flight?
Not very deep and meaningful questions, I know, but thought I’d put them out there anyways.
