Could be American, but it was in common usage in my Buckinghamshire playground in the 1970s.

I'll guess it was set to a tune...

"This Old Man" perchance?

Just a chant really, not a tune as such.

You brought back memories, unfortunately I was also a bit uncoordinated as a kid

I call in
My best friend
Suzie! (or whoever!)
Suzie loves coffee
Suzie loves tea
Suzie loves sitting on her boyfriend's knee

We weren't allowed to sing the last line if our parents were around. The days of innocence

Ah ok, thanks.

There was a reason for asking, but it's more to do with dissuading children from using 'naughty words' in French and something I only learned from younger SD about twenty years back.

I'll maybe ask in the French place.

We also had one that started "I'm a little bumper car..." but memory is failing me for any more

This one?

I'm a little bumper car number 48, I went round the cooooooooorner (jump out of the rope, go around the person holding the rope and jump back in)
and jammed on the brakes. (at the end you are supposed to end up with the rope between your feet)


Dear lord, I can't believe I'm Googling skipping rhymes at this time of night!

Yes, that sounds about right.

Google is your friend, never asks "What time did you come to bed/turn out the light last night?" BTW that is what night mode/red filter is for on the phone/tablet

That was one of my fundraising schemes for a sponsored bike ride. I got £12 a go.
