Never heard the Miss Sue one......but I have heard the steamboat one.

There is one with Miss Mary Mack, but I can't think of the whole thing. 

Miss mary mack, mack, mack

all dressed in black, black, black

with silver buttons, buttons, buttons

all down her back, back, back......

And that's as far as I can get......

Stella Ella Ola 

Stella Ella Ola

The Song:

Stella ella ola, clap clap clap
Say yes, chicko chicko, chicko chicko chak!
Say yes, chicko, chicko, allo, allo
Allo allo allo!
Say one, two three four, FIVE!

The Game:

Have everyone stand in a circle. Everyone stands with both palms up; your left palm on TOP of your neighbour's right palm. At the beginning of the song, the leader slaps her left palm down on her right-hand neighbour's left palm. This second person then repeats the action with her right-hand neighbour, etc., all around the circle.

The goal is to NOT get your palm slapped at the end of the verse. When the countdown gets to "FIVE", if the girl who would get her left hand slapped by her neighbour at "FIVE" moves her hand out of the way in time, the girl doing the slapping is out. If on the other hand the girl doesn't get her hand out of the way, she is out. Whoever is out moves to stand in the middle of the circle. Once several rounds have been played and you have three or four people standing in the middle of the circle, they can begin their own smaller circle and keep playing! The more players you have, the more concentric circles you can get.

Cross down when billy was 4....he learned to shut the door...door de a dah, door de a dah....half past 4
