Alternate ending:

You didn't muck it up so you're my best friend.

Sashenka sent us the version below...

Apple on a stick that makes me sick
That makes my heart beat 2-4-6
Not because I'm crazy, not because I'm weird,
Not because I kissed the boy behind the magazine
Girls, boys having fun here comes a lady with a big fat bum
She can do the wibble, wobble
She can do the splits
I betcha, I betcha she can't do this
Now close your eyes and count to ten
If you muck it up you're not my friend
*Closes eyes*
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10!

(If not mucked up) you didn't muck it up so you're not my friend
(If mucked up) you mucked it up so you're not my friend
And that's the end of chapter ten!

Apples on a stick
Make me sick
Makes my heart go 246 246
Not because I'm ugly
Not because I'm clean
Not because I kissed a boy behind a magazine
So come on girls let's have so fun
Here comes "whoevers name" with her/his pants undone
They can wiggle they can wabble
They can do the splits
Bet you five dollars you can't do this
Close your eyes and count to 10
If you dont you have to kiss your boyfriend
1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9
"We never said ten because if so we had to kiss our boyfriend", 11.

Here's another version we received:

Apple on a stick that makes me sick
and makes my heart go 2-4-6.
Not because I'm dirty not because you're clean,
just because you kissed a boy behind the magazine.
Girls, boys have a lot of fun,
and here comes a lady with a big fat bum,
she can wiggle, she can woggle,
she can even do the splits but I bet she can't do this....
Close your eyes and count to ten,
if you didn't mess it up, your my best friend.

(Close eyes and say) 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10

Fail-- you messed it up so you're not my friend and this is the end of chapter ten!

Did properly-- you didn't mess it up so you're my best friend and this is the end of chapter ten!

THE END!

Apple on a stick, makes me sick
Makes my heart go 246
Not because I'm dirty, not because I'm clean
Not because I kissed a boy behind a magazine.

Boys, boys, having lots of fun
Here comes Bob with his (tie/fly) undone
He can wiggle, he can waggle, he can even do the splits
But I betcha, I betcha, he can't do this.

Close your eyes and count to ten
If you muck it all up then that's the end.

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10

(if messed up) You mucked it all up so that's the end.
(if not messed up) You didn't muck it up but here's the end!
