do your kids sing this song? Me and my son were singing it and he was like how you know that. I was like boy we had this song when I was a kid. I did not know even as I was growing up there were so many versions of it.


Here is the version I learned:

Down by the river of the Hanky Panky
Where the bull frogs jumped from bank to banky
He said "E-I-O-U
your mamma stinks and so do you"
ping-pong dingdong
Your breath smells like King Kong


Here is the version my son learned

Down by the river of the Hanky Panky
Where the bull frogs jumped from bank to banky

I remember that song and actually sing it sometimes. I haven't heard my kids sing any of those old hand clapping rhymes though.

I learned it Down by the banks of the hanky panky where the bullfrogs jumped from bank to bnky with a leap, hop, overstop and the little bullfrog goes Ker-Plop!

 

But I have heard many different ways. My kids love it!!
