Clapping Games

Karen Hobson
Brown Owl,
15th Dartmouth Brownies
Dartmouth, Nova Scotia,
Canada


In The Land of Mars

Where the Ladies Smoke Cigars
Every Puff They Take
Is Enough To Kill A Snake
When The Snake is Dead
They Put Roses in Their Heads
When The Roses Die
They Put Diamonds In Their Eyes
When The Diamonds Break
It's The End of 98 (change first number to refect an upcoming *8*, when I did this it was 78!)

Miss Mary Mack


Miss Mary Mack, Mack, Mack
All Dressed in Black, Black, Black
With Silver Buttons, Buttons, Buttons
All Down Her Back, Back, Back
She Asked her Mother Mother Mother
For Fifty Cents Cents Cents
To See the Elephants, Elephants, Elephants
Jump the Fence, Fence, Fence
They Jumped So High, High, High
They Touched the Sky, Sky, Sky
And Never Came Back, Back, Back
Till Mid-July, July, July
She went up Stairs, Stairs, Stairs
To say her Prayers, Prayers, Prayers
And Bumped her Head, Head Head
And Now shes Dead, Dead, Dead
