Subject: RE: Children's rhymes and playground songs
Help!!! Does anyone remember playing this ball game in the 70's? We used a red, white and blue rubber ball, bounced it against the wall and had to catch it before it hit the ground, and sang a ditty that was accompanied with the appropriate actions. Problem is I can't remember the whole song that went with it. I know part of the song went something like this, "clap front, clap back, front to back, back to front, tweedles, twaddles, curtsies, bowsies, 1-2-3, touch my knee, touch my toe, touch my heel, touch the ground, turn around." I think this is possibly the middle-end of the song and for the life of me I can't remember the beginning of the song. As kids, we spent a lot of outside time playing this game and a lot of skipping games too. I would really like to teach it to my 2 girls.   Thanks for anyone being able to help! I really appreciate it. Goachgirl
