Milk Milk Lemonade Shirt

Milk, Milk, Lemonade, Round the Corner Fudge is Made

Two years ago my wife taught my then 9 year old nephew the famous Milk, Milk, Lemonade, Round the Corner Fudge is Made chant along with the associated movements.  Sadly for him, he couldn’t make it through it without cracking himself and everyone else up.  So this one is for him.  Available now on my store.

What were some of your favorite childhood chants?

    That is funny! I had never heard that phrase before. Your wife has a sense of humor similar to yours. :D

  4. Binky says:

    One thing’s for sure, I’m not buying any food from your shop!

    This is the first time I’ve ever heard this phrase. Where have I been? Living in a cave perhaps.

    Have a terrific day. :)

    Common chant popular in Scotland when I was a child . . .

    Skinny Malinky lang legs, umbrella feet,
    Went tae the pictures an’ couldnae find a seat.
    Got the bus hame an’ widnae pey the fare,
    So the rotten auld conductor kicked her doon the stair

    Alternative version –

    Skinny Malinky lang legs, umbrella feet
    Went to the pictures (cinema) and couldnae find a seat
    When the picture (film) started
    Skinny Malinky farted
    When the picture ended
    Skinny Malinky fented (fainted)

    Then there’s this yin telt tae bairns tae get them tae go aff tae bed

    Wee Willie Winkie rins through the toon,
    Up stairs an’ doon stairs in his nicht-gown,
    Tirlin’ at the window, crying at the lock,
    “Are the weans in their bed, for it’s now ten o’clock?”

    “Hey, Willie Winkie, are ye comin’ ben?
    The cat’s singin grey thrums to the sleepin hen,
    The dog’s speldert on the floor and disna gie a cheep,
    But here’s a waukrife laddie, that wunna fa’ asleep.”

    Onything but sleep, you rogue, glow’ring like the moon,
    Rattling in an airn jug wi’ an airn spoon,
    Rumblin’, tumblin’ roon about, crawin’ like a cock,
    Skirlin like a kenna-what, waukenin’ sleepin’ fock.

    “Hey Willie Winkie, the wean’s in a creel,
    Wamblin’ aff a bodie’s knee like a verra eel,
    Ruggin’ at the cat’s lug and raveling a’ her thrums-
    Hey Willie Winkie – see there he comes.”

    Wearit is the mither that has a stoorie wean,
    A wee, stumpie, stousie, that canna rin his lane,
    That has a battle aye wi’ sleep afore he’ll close an e’e-
    But a kiss frae aff his rosy lips gies strength anew to me

    ******

    For those that dinnae unnerstaun the guid Scot’s tongue, the same in English

    Wee Willie Winkie runs through the town,
    Up stairs and down stairs in his night-gown,
    Tapping at the window, crying at the lock,
    Are the children in their bed, for it’s past ten o’clock?

    Hey, Willie Winkie, are you coming in?
    The cat is singing purring sounds to the sleeping hen,
    The dog’s spread out on the floor, and doesn’t give a cheep,
    But here’s a wakeful little boy who will not fall asleep!

    Anything but sleep, you rogue! glowering like the moon,’
    Rattling in an iron jug with an iron spoon,
    Rumbling, tumbling round about, crowing like a cock,
    Shrieking like I don’t know what, waking sleeping folk.

    Hey, Willie Winkie – the child’s in a creel!
    Wriggling from everyone’s knee like an eel,
    Tugging at the cat’s ear, and confusing all her thrums
    Hey, Willie Winkie – see, there he comes!”

    Weary is the mother who has a dusty child,
    A small short little child, who can’t run on his own,
    Who always has a battle with sleep before he’ll close an eye
    But a kiss from his rosy lips gives strength anew to me.

    all class :)

    love it!

  9. Where’s that Skype puking emoticon when I need it?

  10. writerdood says:

    So what’s on the back of the shirt?

  11. DadaHyena says:

    I would say the “Chinese, Japanese, Dirty Knees, Look at these” chant, but I never really thought it was clever (go watch “The Devil’s Rejects” to get a really weird look at that rhyme).

  12. Wasn’t this one of the ‘puzzles’ on Wheel of Fortune other day?
    :)

  13. Gruhn says:

    I would have to say that’s a new one to me also. Who knew it was such an educational site!

  14. James says:

    You put my childhood on a shirt! I love you!

  15. Friggin Loon says:

    I can’t wear that!!!!! LOL.

  16. I’d never heard that chant. How did I miss that one?

  17. Androgoth says:

    evening Bearman and watch

  18. lisleman says:

    New one for me. But I know lemonade and milk don’t go together well.

  19. ha ha ha loved the chant..and that T-shirt

  20. starla says:

    My grandmother use to watch wheel of fortune. I some how missed this saying as a child. I will get it some thought as to childhood chants.

  21. My boys love to sing Milk Milk Lemonade…especially during dinner. :(

    As a kid, Miss Lucy was my favorite. It was a catchy little clapping game and just a tad bit naughty to make it even more fun. I still catch myself singing it sometimes!

    Miss Lucy had a steam boat
    The steamboat had a bell,
    Miss Lucy went to heaven and the
    Steamboat went to…

    Hello operator
    Please give me number nine
    And if you disconnect me
    I will chop off your…

    Behind the ‘fridgerator
    There was a piece of glass
    Miss Lucy sat upon it
    And she cut her big fat…

    Ask me no more questions
    I’ll tell you no more lies
    The boys are in the bathroom
    Pulling down their…

    Flies are in the kitchen
    The bees are in the park
    The boys and girls
    Are kissing in the…

    Dark is like a movie
    A movie’s like a show
    A show is like a tv set
    And that is all I know.

      Lucy was busy. I remember this one

      Miss Lucy had a baby
      She named him Tiny Tim
      She put him in the bath tub
      To see if he could swim
      He drank up all the water
      He ate up all the soap
      He tried to eat the bath tub
      But it wouldn’t go down his throat

      Miss Lucy called the Docter
      Miss Lucy called the Nurse
      Miss Lucy called the Lady
      With the Alligator Purse

      Mumps said the Doctor
      Measles said the Nurse
      Nothing said the Lady
      With the Alligator Purse

      Out came the water,
      Out came the soup,
      Out came the bathtub
      that wouldn’t go down his throat

    lol i remember singing that and a most distasteful one lol ching chang china man kick him in the goolies and off they ran hmm xxjen

  23. Tony McGurk says:

    I don’t think I’ve heard that since I was in school. It was always a playground classic. Great shirt & I can just picture a whole class of Kindergarten kids wearing them…

  24. And then the finalé to the riddle. “Stick your finger up the hole, out will pop a tootsie roll.”

  25. starla says:

    As I was drifing off to sleep last night the childhood song came to my mind. How about a night shirt that says Nite Nite sleep tight don’t let the bed bugs bite. :+)

  26. Christina says:

    Ah, a shirt for the 50 Shades of Grey fans just getting into kink…

  27. I made a comic in 2010 that refers to this childhood chant. And I never heard the tootsie roll part before.
