The Monkey Got Choked

YouTube Tuesday presents:

Shirley Ellis and "The Clapping Song"

Three, Six, Nine
The Goose Drank Wine
The Monkey Chewed Tobacco on the Streetcar Line
The Line Broke
The Monkey Got Choked
And They All Went to Heaven in a Little Row Boat

My Mama told me
If I was goody
That she would buy me
A rubber dolly
My Auntie told her
I kissed a soldier
Now she won't buy me
A rubber dolly


  1. Bizarre as it sounds, I actually prefer Pia Zadora's wonky take on this tune.

  2. Oh, TJB just has to be that way!

  3. I have the CD that has Pia Zadora's version and have been listening to it all week. That is actually what led me to post Shirley's clip.
