I Am a Pretty Little Dutch Girl

I Am a Pretty Little Dutch Girl

I am a pretty little Dutch girl
As pretty as pretty can be
And all the boys around my way
Go crazy over me

My boyfriend's name was fatty
He comes from Cincinnati
With a pimple on his nose
And three black toes
And this is how my story goes


This was a clapping game in Brooklyn in the '50s
The motions were as follows:
   two girls sat facing each other within clapping distance
   clap self, clap right hands, clap self, clap left hands,
   clap both hands with other, hands on own shoulders,
   clap on own knees, repeat.
