Chorus
3, 6, 9
The goose drank wine
The monkey chew tobacco on the streetcar line
The line broke, the monkey got choked
And they all went to heaven in a little rowboat

Clap Pat - Clap Pat - Clap Pat - Clap Slap
Clap Pat! Clap your hand...
Pat it on your partner hand... right hand
Clap Pat! Clap your hand...
Cross it with your left arm
Pat your partner left palm
Clap Pat! Clap your hand...
Pat your partner right palm
Clap Slap! Clap your hand...
Slap your thigh and sing a little song

My mama told me if I was lucky
That she would treat me
If I was goody
My Aunty told her, I shoulda told her
No I'm not kidding
That's what she told her

3, 6, 9
The goose drank wine
The monkey chew tobacco on the streetcar line
The line broke, the monkey got choked
And they all went to heaven in a little rowboat

Clap Clap!
Clap your hands and prepare to Pat
Take your right arm
Pat your partnerЈr palm with your right palm

Clap!
Take your hand back and clap
Clap!
Take your right arm
Cross your right arm with your left arm
Pat your partnerЈr left palm with your left palm
Clap!
Now back with a clap
Take your hand to your palm and slap your thigh
And watch the fun materialize
As you sing this little song:

My mama told me if I was lucky
That she would treat me
If I was goody
My Aunty told her, I shoulda told her
No I'm not kidding
That's what she told her

(Whisper)

Chorus

My mama told me if I was lucky
That she would treat me
If I was goody
My Aunty told her, I shoulda told her
No I'm not kidding
That's what she told her

My mama told me if I was lucky
That she would treat me
If I was goody
My Aunty told her, I shoulda told her
No I'm not kidding
That's what she told her

That's what she told her
I don't believe It
Yeah right
Can you believe it?

Chorus
