Hand clapping rhyme played by African-American girls

Zing Zing Zing like a washing machine
I like coffee, I like tea.
I like the colored boy
and he likes me.
So step back white boy
you don't shine,
I'll get the colored boy
to beat your behind.
Last night, night before
I met my boyfriend at the candy store.
He bought me ice cream,
he bought me cake,
he brought me home with a belly ache.
Mama, Mama I feel sick.
Call the doctor quick quick quick.
Doctor Doctor shall I die?
Close your eyes and count to five.
One, Two, Three, Four Five. I'M ALIVE!
