The Clapping Song (Little Rubber Dolly/Maple Sugar) - The Light Crust Doughboys/Ned Landry/Al Cherny/Shirley Ellis/The Belle Stars/Pia Zadola/Gary Glitter/The Makoma

The Clapping Song

The goose drank wine 
The monkey chew tobacco on the street car line 
The line broke, the monkey got choked 
And they all went to heaven in a little row boat

Clap pat, clap pat, clap pat, clap slap 
Clap pat, clap your hand
Pat it on your partner hand, right hand 
Clap pat, clap your hand
Cross it with your left arm 
Pat your partner left palm 
Clap pat, clap your hand
Pat your partner right palm 
And a right palm again 
Clap slap, clap your hand 
Slap your thigh and sing a little song, go

My mother told me 
If I was goody 
That she would buy me 
A rubber dolly 
My Auntie told her 
I'd kissed a soldier 
Now she won't buy me 
A rubber dolly 

The goose drank wine 
The monkey chew tobacco on the street car line 
The line broke, the monkey got choked 
And they all went to heaven in a little row boat

Clap, clap
Clap your hands and prepare to pat 
Clap 
Take your right arm 
Pat your partner palm with your right palm 

Clap
Take your hand back and clap 
Clap
Take your right arm 
Cross your right arm with your left arm 
Pat your partner left palm with your left palm 
Clap
Now back with a clap 
Take your hand to your palm and slap your thigh 
And watch the fun materialize 
As you sing this little song

My mother told me 
If I was goody 
That she would buy me 
A rubber dolly 
My Auntie told her 
I'd kissed a soldier 
Now she won't buy me 
A rubber dolly 

Clap
Clap pat, clap pat, clap slap 
Clap pat
Clap pat, clap pat, clap slap
