Transcription of the Gwen’s Girls’ Tones

Cinderella Jump Rope Tone:

Cinderella, dressed in yellow / went upstairs to kiss a fellow / made a mistake and kissed a snake / how many doctors will it take / one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, [etc.]

Down By the Bank (hand-clapping) Ringtone:

Down by the bank with the hanky pank / where the bullfrog jump from bank to bank / say E-Fi-E-Fi-Fo, skittle diddle kernel pop / I pledge allegiance to the flag, Michael Jackson makes me glad / Coca Cola has caffeine, now we’re talking jelly bean / Jelly beans are out of site, now we’re back to / Down by the bank with the hanky pank…
