Did you just say "Later, gator?" Because that would not trigger the response from me. Now if someone says, "See you later, alligator" Then, yup

Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me.

Psych, psych, psychological (I don't know where that came from or why, but we said it all the time)

Curiosity killed the cat! And satisfaction brought it back!

I see said the blind man...
... as he picked up his hammer and saw...
... as he spoke to this deaf daughter...

I know you are, but what am I?

I'm rubber your glue. what ever you say bounces off of me and sticks to you.

I don't shut up I grow up and when i look at you i throw up.
And then your mom comes around the corner and licks it up!

Happy birthday to you. you live in a zoo. you smell like a monkey. you dress like one too.

And many more. On channel 4. And scooby doo on channel 2. And hbo on channel oh.

"I am rubber you are glue, it bounces off me and sticks to you" when someone teased lol.

"Ready Freddy?" when time to go.

"Okey Dokey Smokey"

"Yum yum, piggies bum" when something was tasty.

"Pardon misses Arden there's a chicken in my garden" instead of "pardon me."
"Life is full of beauty. Notice it. Notice the bumble bee, the small child, and the smiling faces. Smell the rain, and feel the wind. Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams.
My very own idiom: butterfoot, instead of barefoot.

Mmmm, butter.
I still love to use "your mom" and "your face" as comebacks. It just cracks me up.

"I don't think that's appropriate."

"Well, I don't think your FACE is appropriate."

Similarly, it's really funny to do the mocking voice + jibberish when someone is really serious. I sometimes imagine actors just mocking what the other person said instead of their real line, when I'm watching a serious drama on tv. Crack myself up.

I still say "your Face"

Pinky swear

My coworker decided to be each other's exercise accountability partner. We said what we were going to do this am for exercise and pinky swore on it.

Jinx! Buy me a Coke!
Liar liar pants on fire

My son and I do the "eenie meenie miney mo" and "bubble gum , bubble gum in a dish.."

Another one that had me 80 as a kid ( and too violent & visual) was the "my mother & your mother were out hanging clothes ..."
Don't let your heart be broken. Let it love.
This is (a new??) one my kids say:
Girls go to college to get more knowledge and boys go to Jupiter to get more stupider.

The second half sounds familiar to me.

This thread reminded me of the clapping game. Do kids still play that? I remember only the start of one of the songs, See See my playmate, come out and play with me. . .

We had a bunch of songs that went along with chinese jump rope but for the life of me I can't remember any of them.

And there was that string game too, where you'd make patterns by wrapping string around your fingers and hands then you pass it on to someone who'd make something else and so on.
Of course I hit submit and I instantly remember some!

One potato, two potato, three potato four
5 potato, six potato, seven potato, more



Trick or treat, smell my feet
give me something good to eat
if you don't, I don't care
I'll pull down your underwear

And this is what they say:

Boys are rotten
Made out of cotton

Girl are handy
made out of candy

Boys go to Jupiter
to get more stupider

Girls go to Mars
to get more candy bars

Boys drink beer
to get more wierd

Girls drink Pepsi
to get more sexy

I don't remember the college part. I like it, but it doesn't go with boys in Jupiter as much as girls in Mars.
