    i have just seen a post by jacqui and she has the clap hands song as her signature, it tickled me cos i always laugh at paul about the scouse version of my darlington clap hands song

    so how does your clap hands song go?

    mine is ... ''clap her hands a daddy coming down the wagon way! a pocket full of money and a cart load of hay!''

    pauls is ... ''clap hands! daddys coming home! to bring little leyla a cake and a bun! an apple to eat and a nut to crack! a big bow wow and a pussy cat!''

    i cant remember jacquis but it was very similar, i love how there is regional versions of the same clap hands song lmao

    so what is yours?

    Oh wait! Come to think of it my mum sings to Leo ... "Clap hands, Leo come, with a penny and a bun, all for Leooo!"

    Is that the same song? x

    I think mine is "Clap handies, Daddy will come and bring little *insert name here* a cake and a bun". I may be wrong though, as my sister used to sing this to her kids and she could have made it up...

    Daddie's comin' hame,
    Hame till his bonny wee bit laddie
    Clap, clap handies,
    My wee, wee ain.
