COUNTING OUT RHYME

MY MOTHER AND YOUR MOTHER WERE HANGING OUT CLOTHES,
MY MOTHER SOCKED YOUR MOTHER RIGHT IN THE NOSE.
WHAT COLOR BLOOD CAME OUT?
(SPELL COLOR CHOSEN) AND YOU ARE NOT IT.
THIS IS USED TO DETERMINE WHO'S "IT" IN A GAME. ALL THE
PLAYERS PUT ONE FOOT IN. WITH EACH SYLLABLE OR WORD
SAID A DIFFERENT FOOT IS TOUCHED. THE PLAYER WHO'S
FOOT IS TOUCHED ON THE WORD OUT GETS TO PICK THE COLOR
OF THE BLOOD. THE PERSON'S FOOT IS TOUCHED ON THE WORD
"IT" IS NOT IT.

Where learned: MICHIGAN ; DEARBORN HEIGHTS
