Subject: RE: Origins: Down by the Banks of the Hanky Panky
I am from Cincinnati Ohio and did not realize the differences between the states and lyrics to this song! We say sat in a circle palms up and someone starts with slapping the next person's hand as it goes in a circle whoever's hand is it when you get to 10 they are out. We sang...

Down, down down in the valley with a hanky panky.
Fe fi fo your mamma stanky
Fe fi fo fum
Chilli willy doing dong
Your mamma smells like king kong
Let's play a game of ping pong
1, 2 etc until you get to 10 whoever gets slapped at 10 is out
