Subject: RE: Folklore: Crocodile crocodile ..kids game.
When we played "may I" you had to remember to say "may i?" after you'd been given your steps. If you forgot I think you went back to the start.

Cluins rhyme reminds me of a song I heard at Litchfield 10 years ago, being taught to children at a Hobby Horse club at the Folk Festival.

Chorus
I'm being easten by a Boa constrictor and I don't like it one bit (x2)

Oh no he's up to my toe (x2)
Chorus

Oh gee he's up to my knee

...my...thigh

...fiddle...middle

...heck...neck

...fred...head

scream!!!
