      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 50 cents, cents, cents
      To see the elephants, elephants, elephants
      Jump over the fence, fence, fence.

      They jumped so high, high, high
      They reached the sky, sky, sky
      And they didn't come back, back, back
      'Til the 4th of July, ly, ly!

      All kids do that all around the world, same hand game !
      well... a nursery rhyme... lets see :))))

      Dododo ich-mwen dodo
      Dododo ich-mwen dodo
      Si ich-mwen pa ka dòmi
      Gro djab-la ké vini pran'y

      That's the first that came to my head.... I guess they wanted to be sure that the kid would sleep as it says : Sleep my child, sleep, if you don't, the devil will come and get you !!!!
      Terrible song !
      Most of the song I knew as a kid were traditional french nursery rhymes like Frêre Jacques... as at home we were not allowed to speak creole. Now I fight for the language that is part of my culture :)

      to jendayee: thanks for sharing with us this Creole nursery rhyme, writing to you of course I was thinking about your national language.

      Miss Polly had a dolly who was sick, sick sick,
      so she called for the Dr. to come quick, quick, quick,
      the Dr. came with his bag and his hat
      and he knocked on the door with a rap, tap, tap.
      He looked at the dolly and he shook his head,
      he said miss Polly put her straight to bed
      he took out his pad for some pills, pills, pills
      I'll be back in the morning if she's still ill, ill.

      We also said....
      SEE SEE oh playmate,
      comeout and play with me
      and bring your dollys 3
      climb up my apple tree
      slide down my rainbow
      into my cellar door
      and we'll be jolly friends forever more, more, more more more!

      One of ours is:
      Sing a song of sixpence, a pocket full of rye
      four and twenty blackbirds baked in a pie
      when the pie was opened the birds began to sing....
      Wasn't that a pretty dish to set before a king?

      The king was in his counting-house, counting all his money
      the queen was in the parlor, eating bread and honey
      The maid was in the garden, hanging out the clothes....
      When along came a blackbird and nipped off her nose!
