A children's song permanently etched into my brain. Lyrics are as follows:
Three six nine,
The goose drank wine
The monkey did the shimmy on the streetcar line
But the streetcar broke
And the monkey went croak1
And they all went to heaven on an old billygoat
My mother told me
If I was good, she
Well, she would buy me a rubber ducky2
My auntie told her
I kissed a soldier
Now she won't buy me that rubber ducky.
repeat first verse
1Instead of saying the word croak, you may wish to make a slit-throat noise.
2At this point, play a kazoo or make quacking noises until somebody forces you to stop.
This song also has hand motions that go along with it:
Fingers Up! (bring your hands up to your chest.)
Three six nine (count three, six, nine on your fingers)
The goose drank wine (stick your neck out like a goose, then drink as if you had a glass in your hand.)
The monkey did the shimmy on the streetcar line (immitate a monkey doing the "shimmy".)
But the streetcar broke (Touch fingertips with both arms horizontal and form into inverted V on the word "broke".)
And the monkey went went croak (choke yourself or draw a finger across your neck.)
And they all went to heaven on an old billy-goat (praying hands, i think. or maybe this line has no actions... I can't remember!)
This song was possibly written by Kim & Jerry Brodey. /msg me if you can confirm this.
