Here's a modern American take on the British rhyme "What's Your Name Mary Jane?" I learnt a new version from a young American schoolgirl.

The funny thing about this one is that it refers to Michael Jackson, but she has know idea who he is! I wonder how many generations of elementary kids this version has gone through. How long ago has it been since Michael Jackson's been "In"? I'd imagine about 15-20 years (since the late '80's).


The last line gets a big giggle from the kids. Not because it's Michael Jackson – but because it's underwear! I guess any mention of that subject with elementary school children will get a laugh!

Another Version:

What's your name?
Pudding Tame
Ask me again and
I'll tell you the same!
