"Standing on the Corner"
This is a children's hand clapping game. The song is sung,"
Standing on the corner, chewing a piece of gum,
Along came a boy saying give me some.
I said, "no, dirty boy does your momma know you're out,
With your hands in your pocket and your shirt tail out.
Einy beeny a baline, a ba hebalini-me and my brother George.
A peach, a plum, have a stick of chewing gum,
This is what he said,"Ilias dilias, assis, assis, tell me this.
Cafeteria, ra, ra, ra."
