Childhood Rhymes

Everyone knows:
"Trick or Treat! Smell my feet! Give me something good to eat!"

but does anyone remember the next line?
"If you don't... I don't care! I'll pull down your underwear!"
Im trying to find out if this was just a California thing growing up... Or if it was nation-spread.

I think it's a hot rhyme. :o)
It always excited me as a little kid. ;oP

It wasn't just a California thing! I used to say that as a kid when I was growing up in Maryland. ^_^

And yeah, it is a pretty hot rhyme! ;)

Got me all the way over in Missouri, and followed me out to Nevada as a kid.  I think it's pretty widespread.  :3

Not even just an American thing. We said it up here in Canadia, too!

That, and
"In the land of Oz, all the women wear no bras/and the men don't care 'cause they wear no underwear."
(Sung to the tune of https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2rmoymvID0c )

I heard, "There's a place in France where the ladies wear no pants."

Isn't there "A place in France where the naked women dance, There's a hole in the wall where the men can see it all" ?

Wow, it used to bother me so much when kids would sing, "...where the men always stall," because it DIDN'T SCAN! And now at last I know what the line should be!

But it's totally "naked ladies."

I heard as:
"But the men don't care because they chew their underwear.
And the underwear they chew, costs a dollar ninety-two."
Why I remember this... I dont know. ;)

Yup, I remember that.

Speaking of geography-based colloquialisms, do people wherever you are say 'wicked' as a synonym for 'very/extremely'? Because I always thought it was specific to New England, where I'm from.

I'm pretty sure wicked belongs just to us New Englanders.

California tried it out for a year when I was a pre-teen. It didn't catch on. Kinda like 'def'. :o)

We definitely had that in Michigan! Does(or rather 'did') California have Devil's Night every Oct 30th? It was basically a night where kids would literally run amok in the streets and do bad things.

I remember the rhyme from Catdog:
"Trick or treat, smell my butt, shovel sugar into my gut, if you don't I don't care, I'll just pull down MY underwear!"
it was a pretty perverted thing to say for a kid's show

i said it as a kid in missouri, though it never really meant anything sexual to me as a kid :P

I remember the second verse being recited/sang in Florida, Alaska, and Indiana.

And considering I was raised in a Catholic military family, the though of eroticism never occurred to me.

In my part of Canada we had "Not to big, not to small, just the size of Montreal"

I remember the second verse but I'm from CA so n/a :-/

Also liked "great big gobs of greasy grimy gopher guts, mutilated monkey meat, chopped-up bits of parakeet, floating eyeballs swimming in a pool of blood, and that's what girls are made of".  Just found out the original tune source recently, "Old Gray Mare", some old Americana tune... oh childhood memories, when that was the most twisted thing we could imagine (before we found the furry fandom >:-)

"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!"
"Once your privates are exposed, you are going to get hosed!"

:P How'd you like my new addtion? ^^

American TV shows running in Austria as well as shops smelling profit, importet halloween to us as well. <.< I am not sure if I am happy about it. We have our own "Halloweenish" traditions.
Anyway in German the ryhme turned into: "Süsses sonst gibt's Saures." which roughly means "Sweets or you'll get it!"

:O I grew up in Kitsap County, moving from Port Orchard to Bremerton between 6th and 7th grade. Then I went to PLU and transferred to UW where I got my degree, and now have lived and worked in Seattle for nine years: nearly continuously lived, not-so-continuously worked :P.

In North Carolina it was
trick or treat
smell my feet
give me something good to eat
if you don't
I'll call the cops

PeachClover

Yes, that was a line we used, and I think the variant "I'll pull down my underwear" was also used.  My mother didn't want us saying that part of it though and it became a secret.  Looking back, it does make me smile a mischievous smile.  ^-^

I definitely heard it in Idaho. I think it was "I'll pull down my underwear" for us.
