What verses are considered the most common. I’ve heard a zillion of them, but don’t know which ones are the “defaults.”
There’s a fun version on Buckwheat Zydeco’s kids’ CD, Choo Choo Boogaloo, including such verses as:
My li’l boy and your li’l boy
Playing catch with a tomato.
Your boy missed mine’s very best throw,
Made ketchup on a gator!
My grandmaw and your grandmaw,
Sittin’ on the Bayou.
My grandmaw said to your grandmaw,
Let’s make some jambalay-oo.
and of course:
Make up the words to this silly song,
And sing it to your sister.
Rhyme any time, and you can’t go wrong,
Give your sister a real tongue twister!
