When I was in elementary school, we would sing "Annabelle, Where are you Going?". The words have stuck with me as some of my friends at the time called me Annabelle, so I heard the song a lot. As a tall, skinny kid, the lyrics fit well.
The other night, I sang it to Brooks and Adlyn before bed. They thought it was funny, and have asked me to sing in 10+ times before they go to bed. They are learning many of the words and hopefully they will be able to sing a song before long.
I did a quick Google search to find the actual lyrics before I posted this. To my surprise, I found many variations, none of which are a perfect match to the ones that I know. Oddly, the name is different as well! Instead of Annabelle, I came across Alice, Gladys, Ellie Mae, and many others.
Annabelle, Where are You Going?
Annabelle, where are you going?
Upstairs, to take a bath.
Your legs, are like two toothpicks.
Your neck, like a giraffe.
Annabelle, stepped in the water,
To pull, the stopper out.
Oh my goodness, oh my soul,
There goes Annabelle down that hole.
