Thread Name: Lyr Req: Oh my, I want a piece of pie
Subject: Lyr Add: OH, MY! NO MORE PIE
Copied from a Korean site: http://www.cje.ac.kr/~aspira/game1.htm*There is a similar version at http://www.gp4k.com/stories/Article.asp?ID=395, with the following variants: 1. "I need a trolley car." 2. "Car's too slow."

The following variation is quoted in a short story, "Big Boy Leaves Home," from "Uncle Tom's Children" by Richard Wright (1938). The story concerns a group of black boys who entertain themselves by singing and chanting rhymes.
