African-American Children's hand clapping game

This game is played as hands are clapped together in time to
the words in the game.
Popsicle sticks will make you sick
with a wiggle and a wobble
and a giggle and a flip
If you say (any number the caller chooses to call from 0-9)
you're out of the game.

Submitter comment: If the number two (2) is called then the children proceed to
count skipping over the number two i.e.
1,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,13, etc. never calling any number
containing a two (2). If someone does call a number
containing two (2) he/she is out of the game. Rhythm is very
important to the game; it is played keeping time with a
consistent hand clapped rhythm.
