Ip Dip

Everyone stands in a line or circle and as each word is said you point to the next person.

Ip dip dog shit you are not it

"Ip dip sky blue, 
who's it not you"

The person you are pointing to when you say "you" is out.

Keep going until only one remains and that person is 'IT'.

There are many more rhymes including some very naughty versions like; one of my favourites

"Ip dip dog shit, 
dirty bastard, 
silly git, 
you are not IT"

Ipper Dipper Dation, my operation, how many people at the station

The person you are pointing at on the last syllable of station shouts a number, ie. five and then you continue round the circle. The person who is number five is out. The last person in, is it.

(As each syllable is sounded, the next person in the circle will be pointed at)

This is a counting game to decide who is the first person to be 'it'.

I grew up on the island of St Helena in the South Atlantic in the early 1970s.  We used to say something similar - "Ip dip alabadar dutch cheese sentimar, sentimar alabadar O-U-T spells OUT!

On a similar subject does anyone remember "The King asked the Queen, the Queen asked the dairymaid, "Could we have some butter for the Royal Slice of Bread" o something like that?

Ip dip dog's shit,
You are not it,
Not because you're dirty,
Not because you're clean,
My mum says you're a fairy queen,
So pack your bags,
And say GOODBYE!

Ha! We used;

Ip dip, dog shit,
fucking bastard, silly git,
You are not it.

Got us into a lot of trouble when we learnt it in year 3, in 1995.

This is how I learnt this rhyme in primary (junior) school in London in the early 70's:

"Ip dip dog shit you are not it"
"Not because you're dirty, not because you're clean"
"My mum says you're a fairy queen"
O-U-T spells 'out' and 'out' you must go"

Ip dip alapadar dutch cheese santamar, santamar alapadar shan.
Brought up in Battersea after the war we didn't use words like 'shit' did wonder if maybe the words came from North Africa.  Didnt know anything about Dutch cheese it was all a mystery.
Has anyone else mentioned this version
