    Lyrics

    3, 6, 9
    The goose drank wine
    The monkey chew tobacco on the streetcar line
    The line broke, the monkey got choked
    And they all went to heaven in a little rowboat

    Clap pat - clap pat - clap pat - clap slap
    Clap pat! clap your hand...
    Pat it on your partner hand... right hand
    Clap pat! clap your hand...
    Cross it with your left arm
    Pat your partner left palm
    Clap pat! clap your hand...
    Pat your partner right palm
    And a right palm again
    Clap slap! clap your hand...
    Slap your thigh and sing a little song go...

    My Mother told me
    If I was goody
    That she would buy me
    A rubber dolly
    My Auntie told her
    I'd kissed a soldier
    Now she won't buy me
    A rubber dolly

    3, 6, 9
    The goose drank wine
    The monkey chew tobacco on the streetcar line
    The line broke, the monkey got choked
    And they all went to heaven in a little rowboat

    Clap clap!
    Clap your hands and prepare to pat
    Clap!
    Take your right arm
    Pat your partner palm with your right palm

    Clap!
    Take your hand back and clap
    Clap!
    Take your right arm
    Cross your right arm with your left arm
    Pat your partner left palm with your left palm
    Clap!
    Now back with a clap
    Take your hand to your palm and slap your thigh
    And watch the fun materialize
    As you sing this little song:

    My Mother told me
    If I was goody
    That she would buy me
    A rubber dolly
    My Auntie told her
    I'd kissed a soldier
    Now she won't buy me
    A rubber dolly

    Clap!

    Clap pat - clap pat - clap slap
    Clap pat!
    Clap pat - clap pat - clap slap
