Playground/recess songs.....

My daughter came home singing this song today.... Once someone told me the world was macaroni so I took a bite out of a tree, it tasted kinda funkey so I spit it at a monkey and the monkey started cussing at me. (remix of smashmouths allstars song) So what songs are your kids learnig on the playground. Are they old time favorites, were they changed, are they remixs of real songs? Any one who can provide lyrics would be great....Thanks.

I sang it once for some 5th graders....not sure it was appropriate for that age, but they found it hillarios. And I remember it from grade school. They hear worse at home, I'm sure.
