Downtown Baby

Last night, the very patient Jane taught me some of the clapping rhymes currently popular in Ottawa elementary schools. Here is my favourite. [If you mouse over the words, you should see the actions that go with them. Unless it's a phrase that just gets the basic clapping.]

Downtown Baby

Downtown Baby

Down by the roller coaster No place to go

Caught you with your boyfriend Naughty! Naughty!

Didn't do the dishes. Lazy! Lazy!

Stole a box of candies. Greedy! Greedy!

Jumped out the window Super Sonic Crazy!

Home sweet home, home sweet home, this is how it goes

Eeny meeny popsakeeny Ooo ah la wanna beanie

Education Liberation

I Love You

And here is Jane patiently teaching me... [Video by Marcie]
