Barbara shared this rhyme with this note: "My husband Louis and I got married in 1958. His mother was born in 1907 in Oklahoma before it was a state. She and her husband taught this rhyme to their children as they were growing up. Louis and his six siblings naturally taught it to their children as they came along. Our three children still remember it to this day. I have no idea of its origin just remember that our children delighted in it. We live in St. Louis, Missouri. My name is Mrs. Barbara Holland. My husband Louis passed away in 2016."
