I remember my grandmother singing this song to my children when they were very young. -Mama Lisa

Game Instructions

Clap baby's hands to the beat until you get to "none!" on the last line. Then put the baby's hands up in the air.


Here's the version my grandmother sang to my kids:

Clap hands, clap hands
till Daddy gets home,
'cause Daddy has money,
and Mommy has none!


Recording by Mama Lisa
