The first hand clap rhyme is a version of "There's A Place On Mars".

The second rhyme is a version of "The Simpsons". That rhyme begins at .025 in that video. My transcription of that rhyme is given as Example #1 below.

INFORMATION ABOUT THE SIMPSONS ANIMATED TELEVISION SERIES
Excerpt #1
From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Simpsons
"The Simpsons is an American animated sitcom created by Matt Groening for the Fox Broadcasting Company. The series is a satirical parody of a middle class American lifestyle epitomized by its family of the same name, which consists of Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, and Maggie. The show is set in the fictional town of Springfield and parodies American culture, society, television, and many aspects of the human condition.

The family was conceived by Groening shortly before a solicitation for a series of animated shorts with the producer James L. Brooks. Groening created a dysfunctional family and named the characters after members of his own family, substituting Bart for his own name. The shorts became a part of The Tracey Ullman Show on April 19, 1987. After a three-season run, the sketch was developed into a half-hour prime time show and was an early hit for Fox, becoming the network's first series to land in the Top 30 ratings in a season (1989–1990).

Since its debut on December 17, 1989, the show has broadcast 530 episodes and the twenty-fourth season ended on May 19, 2013. The Simpsons is the longest-running American sitcom, the longest-running American animated program, and in 2009 it surpassed Gunsmoke as the longest-running American primetime, scripted television series. The Simpsons Movie, a feature-length film, was released in theaters worldwide on July 26 and July 27, 2007, and grossed over $527 million.

The Simpsons is widely considered to be one of the greatest television series of all time."...

Excerpt #2
From https://simpsons.fandom.com/wiki/Bart_Simpson
...."Bartholomew JoJo "Bart" Simpson (born Sunday, April 1, 1979) is the deuteragonist of The Simpsons.

Bart is the mischievous, rebellious, misunderstood, disruptive and "potentially dangerous" eldest child. He is the only son of Homer and Marge Simpson, and the older brother of Lisa and Maggie.”…
-snip-
Here's the meaning of the word "deuteragonist" from 
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deuteragonist
"In literature, the deuteragonist or secondary main character (from Ancient Greek: δευτεραγωνιστής, deuteragōnistḗs, second actor) is the second most important character, after the protagonist and before the tritagonist.[1] The deuteragonist may switch between supporting and opposing the protagonist, depending on the deuteragonist's own conflict or plot."...

PANCOCOJAMS EDITOR'S NOTE ABOUT THESE RHYMES
To my knowledge, The Simpsons hand clap rhymes that are included in this post weren't created by anyone associated with The Simpsons television series or movie.

However,  because of the close similarities between the four examples it's likely that there was one source for this rhyme. One version was collected from an in person source in Maryland and shared with me. I happened upon the other three sources (plus one not in English which I haven't transcribed) on the internet.

With regard to the similarities, except for the example given as #1 below, each of the examples list all of or most of the names of the Simpsons family. Examples #1 and #3 include the "double trouble" phrase, the "pump up the volume" phrase, and the "criss cross applesauce" phrase.  Example #2 includes the "pump up the volume" and "criss cross applesauce" phrases and may also include the "double trouble phrase", but unfortunately, I couldn't decipher all of the words that were spoken in that video. Example #4 includes the phrase "deep trouble" which is probably a folk processed form of "double trouble". And except for Example #4, all of these four examples that I've come across end with the word "Freeze!" 

"Double trouble" means "a lot of trouble".

"Pump of the volume" technically means "to increase the sound". But, in the context of playground rhymes, it means "raise the energy level", "be more enthusiastic". "Pump up the volume" is often found in children's cheerleader cheers.

Criss cross applesauce is a rhyming phrase that is used in schools and community centers as a command for children to sit on the floor with their legs crossed. In these hand games, "criss cross applesauce" just serves as a rhyming phrase that combines one part of a rhyme with another part.   

**
Please share any information and/or examples of this rhyme that you know in the comment section for this pancocojams post. Remember to add demographics (where-city & state you live/d in when you first heard this rhyme and when (year or decade) you first heard this rhyme.

-snip-
Additions and corrections are welcome. 
"Sin sin sin" is probably a folk processed form of the phrase "shame shame shame". Those words are  used as an introductory line for certain children's hand clap rhyme, particularly those that originated among African Americans. One well known example of hand games that often begin with "shame shame shame" is "I Don't Want To Go To Mexico".

"Twist" may be the word "tricks".

Maggie is a folk processed name for the character's name "Marge" in The Simpsons series.

"Mart" is a folk processed form of the character's name "Bart" 
in The Simpsons series.

The summary of this video is "Ren, Eric, Alex, Renee doing what Renee wants to do... again"
-snip-
Unfortunately, the visuals and sound for this video are very poor quality.  However, this example documents one way that this hand game is performed.   

Here's a description of this video:
A Black man, two young Black boys and a young Black girl form a circle and clap each others hands in the beginning portion of this rhyme to a syncopated beat. The participants then perform body motions which correspond to the words that are said. For instance, on the words "criss cross", the participants cross their arms on their chest. And on the word "Freeze!", the participants "freeze in place" (make a funny or dramatic pose and remain perfectly still for a very short amount of time.)

The words to this rhyme are difficult to hear, but I believe that the words that the participants recited are the same as or very similar to the words given in Version #3 below.

The Name "Frankenstein" In Examples Of Children's Jump Rope & Handclap Rhymes

Edited by Azizi Powell

This is pancocojams post presents some information about the 19th century novel Frankenstein and documents a few examples of children's jump rope and handclap rhymes that include the name "Frankenstein". 

The content of this post is presented for cultural and recreational purposes.

I'm particularly interested in how Frankenstein is characterized in these rhyme examples.

Thanks to Mary Shelley for writing the Frankenstein novel and thanks to all those who are quoted in this post.


****
INFORMATION ABOUT THE FRANKENSTEIN NOVEL
From https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frankenstein#Frankenstein_and_the_Monster
"Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus is an 1818 novel written by English author Mary Shelley (1797–1851) that tells the story of Victor Frankenstein, a young scientist who creates a sapient creature in an unorthodox scientific experiment. Shelley started writing the story when she was 18, and the first edition was published anonymously in London on 1 January 1818, when she was 20.[2] Her name first appeared in the second edition published in Paris in 1821.

[...]

It has had a considerable influence in literature and popular culture and spawned a complete genre of horror stories, films and plays.

Since the publication of the novel, the name "Frankenstein" has often been used to refer to the monster itself.[8][9][10]

[…]

Frankenstein and the Monster

Part of Frankenstein's rejection of his creation is the fact that he does not give it a name, which causes a lack of identity. Instead it is referred to by words such as "wretch", "monster", "creature", "demon", "devil", "fiend", and "it"."...

Notice all the politically and socially incorrectness of the original words! You won't be hearing THAT on a schoolyard anywhere. Of course, I doubt if kids jump rope anymore, either.

Sometimes I wonder where I've been

Who I am

Do I fit in?

Make believing is hard alone

Out here on my own

 

[Verse 2]

We're always proving who we are

Always reaching for that rising star

To guide me far

And shine me home

Out here on my own

 

[Chorus]

When I'm down and feeling blue

I close my eyes so I can be with you

Oh, baby, be strong for me

Baby, belong to me

Help me through

Help me need you

 

[Verse 3]

Until the morning sun appears

Making light of all my fears

I dry the tears

I've never shown

Out here on my own

 

[Chorus]

But when I'm down and feeling blue

I close my eyes so I can be with you

Oh, baby, be strong for me

Baby, belong to me

Help me through

Help me need you

 

[Verse 1]

Sometimes I wonder

Where I've been

Who I am

Do I fit in?

I may not win

But I can't be thrown

Out here on my own

[Outro]

Out here on my own

 

Out Here On My Own was sung by Irene Cara, who portrayed Coco Hernandez in “Fame.”

Archiving Some Comments From The 2007 YouTube Video Of A Virginia High School Stomp & Shake Cheerleading Squad



woowooworkit, Feb 3, 2007

SASSY does a new cheer!

****
Edited by Azizi Powell

This pancocojams post archives a number of comments from the discussion thread of a 2007 YouTube video of the Sassy cheerleaders performing the cheer "Roll All Over".

The content of this post is presented for historical, linguistic, and socio-cultural purposes. 
All copyrights remain with their owners.

Thanks to all those who are featured in this video and thanks to all those who are quoted in this post. Thanks also to the publisher of this video on YouTube.
 
****
PANCOCOJAMS EDITOR'S NOTE
I decided to archive these selected comments from this embedded YouTube video because I noticed that some YouTube videos that had been embedded in this pancocojams post that compiled text (word only) examples of stomp and shake cheerleading cheers: https://pancocojams.blogspot.com/2017/06/examples-of-stomp-shake-cheerleading_29.html were no longer available. Since those videos are no longer available on YouTube, their discussion threads are also lost forever unless those comments are quoted elsewhere.  

I consider some YouTube comments to be worthy of archiving, study, and sharing because of their historical, linguistic, and other socio-cultural content. The selected comments in the  discussion thread for this embedded video include some examples of African American vernacular English (such as "thick") and also include some comments about stomp and shake cheerleading and how high school stomp and shake squads' routines can come from various sources such as historically Black Greek letter organizations and a Spike Lee's School Daze movie.   

****
VIDEO DESCRIPTION OFPART OF THIS ROUTINE
"Sassy" is the name of the cheerleading squad from Prince Edward County High School in Farmville, Virginia, USA. 

In several other pancocojams posts including this one http://pancocojams.blogspot.com/2012/01/stomp-shake-cheerleading-who-cheers.html,
 I wrote that members of the Sassy cheerleader squad learned cheers (including their performance routines) from cheer camps that were hosted by Virginia State University's Woo Woo cheerleaders. I got this information various comments that were found in discussion threads of various Sassy YouTube videos.

In this 2007 video the cheerleading squad is all female and predominately African American (There is one White cheerleader).

The squad performs this stomp and shake cheer in the middle of the gymnasium floor during what a commenter guessed was a pep rally (comment #11). I believe this comment refers to a basketball pep rally.  

This video's visual quality at this time is poor and, as is the case with many stomp and shake cheers, the words that are chanted are mostly indistinguishable. However, a member of that squad posted the words to that cheer (given as comment #17 below).

Particular attention in these comments is given to the routine that is done beginning at .26 to around .35 of this video. This movement, referred to as a "log roll" in these comments, occurs when all of the cheerleaders lay in a vertical line on their stomachs in a push up position. The first person rolls toward the other girls and continues to roll to the end of the line. As she approaches each girl, they quickly push their body off of the floor so that she can pass underneath them. This simultaneous leaping, rolling movement creates a ripple effect.* 

This "roll over" or "log roll" routine has been performed as part of the steppin routines of at least one historically Black Greek letter fraternity. My adult daughter and I recall seeing this floor ripple movement performed by members of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. However, I can't identify any video with that movement. Furthermore, we remember seeing that floor ripple routine performed during a dance show in the mid 2000s in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania fby a Hip/Hop/acrobatic group from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Unfortunately, I can't remember the name of the group. 

Spike Lee's movie School Daze features a similar floor ripple ("log roll'). Here's  a Wikipedia summary of that movie https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/School_Daze
"School Daze is a 1988 American musical comedy-drama film, written and directed by Spike Lee, and starring Larry Fishburne, Giancarlo Esposito, and Tisha Campbell-Martin. Based in part on Spike Lee's experiences as a Morehouse student in the Atlanta University Center during the 1970s, it is a story about undergraduates in a fraternity and sorority clashing with some of their classmates at a historically black college during homecoming weekend."

Here's a link to the YouTube video of that floor ripple that is performed by the fictitious Black fraternity Gamma Phi Gamma (GPhiG):  
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O5xp1GrQV2k&ab_channel=imwithstupidx2.


Here are two comments from that video's discussion thread.
"
Mehrunissah93, 2013
"
So many real fraternities aren't this creative. This is my favorite scene of the whole movie."
-snip-
Note that the movie School Daze also featured some real fraternities and sororities such as Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. (APhiA) and Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. (AKA) I think that GPhiG's name and floor ripple ("log roll") routine is largely based on APhiA Fraternity.

Read the comments below that refer to the Sassy stomp and shake cheerleaders performing this "fraternity" routine.

*Please help improve this description by re-wording it in the comment section of this post below. Thanks.).   

Some of these comments also present opinions about Virginia State University's WooWoo cheerleading squad. (Notice that the publisher of this video includes the name "Woo Woo" in their name.)

"That was so VSU. No disrespect to my Woo Woo's, because again, they taught me what I know. But they should REALLY leave the step shows to the Greeks & Step Teams. Like the whole clapping under an upstomp thing... I mean, that's the only reason people don't take them seriously as a squad.

But the girls did what they did beautifully. I loved the execution, but I hated the cheer."

"OK that was cute (the lil fraternity move) but Seriously... check the motions of the ladies!! Their arm motions... Not good! What has cheerleading gone to these days!!! Who can drop it like its hot?? SAD!!"

"The lil fraternity move" is the aforementioned "log roll".

"Well in my opinion , this style of cheering is unique and original.  It might not be the "traditional style of cheering" , but who cares?  It's nice to shake somethings up and this by far is one the best cheer squads I've seen.  My squad also does this type of cheer and I'm not being cocky but ANY cheerleader could careless what you think about our style of cheer and what we do. I give this a HUGE thumbs up, GOOD JOB!"

"I know it has been a while since this came out but I was looking through the cheers and dances and found this.  I am an elementary coach and I am always looking for something that is different.  I love this and thought it would be good for my girls to learn it if it is okay by the owner of the cheer.  Could anyone please help me out and let me know the cheer and words?"

"Hi @Karen Midgett , I was a cheerleader on this squad (I'm actually in the video). The words are" Let's get physical, get down get funky get mean, watch those mighty Eagles, roll right over you team.... It's time to get physical it's time to get mean, watch those mighty Eagles roll right over your team". We had a lot of fun doing these cheers! Good luck with your cheer squad!!"
