Saying, ‘O my true-love, fare you well?Ó
Out she comes as white as snow,
Rings on her fingers, bells on her toes.
Ould Johnny Murry says she’ll die
If she doesn’t get the fellow with the roving eye.

Let the wind and the rain and the hail blow high,
And the snow come dropping from the sky,
She’s as nice as apple pie,
And she’ll get her own lad by and by.
When she gets a lad of her own,
She won’t turn around when she comes home.
Let them call as they will,
It’s Albert Mooney she loves still.

cowboy joe from mexico hands up stick them up drop your guns and pick them up and out you go – Sat Mar 11 2006

 

I think this is an awesome site. I also like the one with the red car in it. If it’s the same one that I’m thinking of, I belive it has the line in it – Policeman caught me and put me in jail. All I had was gingerale. How many gallons did I drink (this is the last line). Then you count until the person goes out. There is also the rhyme – Cowboy Joe from Mexico. Hands up (you put your hands up), stick’em up (put both hands like a gun), don’t forget to pick’em up, cowboy Joe. Same rhyme can be done subsituting cowgirl Sue from Ten Buck Two. I also believe that Spanish Dancer’s starts off with – not last night, but the night before, 24 robbers came knocking on my door. I asked them what they wanted and this is what they said “Spanish dancer’s do the splits, splits (do like a V), Spanish Dancers turn around, around (turn around while still jumping). Spanish Dancers touch the ground, ground (bend down and touch the ground, while still jumping). Spanish Dancers get out of this T O W N town. Then you jump out while rope still turning. – Mon Mar 20 2006

This really goes back to my childhood. I recognize many of them and I am sure the various versions are pertinent to the area you are from. Ducky, Ducky Dancer, do the splits. Ducky, Ducky Dancer, give a hard kick. Ducky, Ducky Dancer, show your shoe. Ducky, Ducky Dancer, Skidoo, Skidoo. – Tue Mar 28 2006
