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?
Ahahaha. I haven’t heard that phase is years! 🙂 Great looking tee-shirt, Bearman!;-)

That is funny! I had never heard that phrase before. Your wife has a sense of humor similar to yours. 😀
This couldn’t be a regional thing. And yes…that is why I married her.
One thing’s for sure, I’m not buying any food from your shop!
Funny I was just thinking about giving away some food. haha
This is the first time I’ve ever heard this phrase. Where have I been? Living in a cave perhaps.
Have a terrific day. 🙂
Where are you people living?? hahah
It is new to me too and it took me a while to get it. I ain’t never heard it and I’m older than dirt.
I thought you were the one that came up with it
New to me, too.
Nope…don’t know how I missed it though if it has been around that long.
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)
haha…I like any of those chants with a good ol fart in it.
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.
Well I guess one good thing about England taking over Scotland is that I can now understand you all better..haha
Yeah, but you can’t shut them up!!!! 🙂
Oi, I heard that – Ggrrrrr !
I was using my outside voice
Nicely added Duncan R
I enjoyed reading that 🙂
all class 🙂
We like to stay on the high road here.
Where’s that Skype puking emoticon when I need it?
So what’s on the back of the shirt?
Two sided shirts are more expensive so I put it all on the front.
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).
We always said Hercules and showed our muscles instead of Dirty Knees
Wasn’t this one of the ‘puzzles’ on Wheel of Fortune other day?
I don’t know….only grandmas still watch Wheel of Fortune
That is still on the air?
RJ/SpilledInk obviously is watching.
I would have to say that’s a new one to me also. Who knew it was such an educational site!
I did…I could have told you.
You put my childhood on a shirt! I love you!
Finally…I thought I was going crazy with no one knowing what this was.
I can’t wear that!!!!! LOL.
You could wear it more than I could.
True. What do manboobs contain????
I’d never heard that chant. How did I miss that one?
All that overseas traveling…lost in translation.
Hey I have already added a comment on this one
over on ze Google place, and guess what I still
haven’t thought of anything worthy enough to add
sooooooooooooooo I will have to keep thinking 🙂
Have a great rest of
evening Bearman and watch
out for those Zombies 🙂
Thanks AG….keep thinking
New one for me. But I know lemonade and milk don’t go together well.
Only in a cement mixer
ha ha ha loved the chant..and that T-shirt
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.
haha…this was NOT part of Wheel of Fortune.
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…

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
I can’t laugh because I have no idea what this is..
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…
So it is well known in Tazmania and Ohio….interesting.
The only difference was that we said “around the corner chocolate is made” instead of fudge
And then the finalé to the riddle. “Stick your finger up the hole, out will pop a tootsie roll.”
haha…never heard that one but I will be sure to start using it.
I like it!!!
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. :+)
Have you seen the number of bed bugs out there??? They will protest in my bed.
Thankfully I have not seen any bed bugs. I do worry about the little critters yuck.
You don’t see them…they sneak up on you
Ah, a shirt for the 50 Shades of Grey fans just getting into kink…
I made a comic in 2010 that refers to this childhood chant. And I never heard the tootsie roll part before.
