    Melody Play (help·info)

    "Mary Mack" ("Miss Mary Mack") is a clapping game played by children in English-speaking countries. It is first attested in the book The by Henry Carrington Bolton (1888), whose version was collected in West Chester, Pennsylvania. It is well known in various parts of the United States, Australia, Canada, United Kingdom and in New Zealand and has been called "the most common hand-clapping game in the English-speaking world".[1]

    In the game, two children stand or sit opposite to each other, and clap hands in time to a rhyming song.

    The same song is also used as a jumprope rhyme,[2] although rarely so according to one source.[3]

    Rhyme[edit]

    Various versions of the song exist; a common version goes;

    Miss Mary Mack, Mack, Mack

    All dressed in black, black, black

    With silver buttons, buttons, buttons

    All down her back, back, back (or "Up and down her back, back, back")

    She asked her mother, mother, mother

    For 50 cents, cents, cents

    To see the elephants, elephants, elephants

    Jump over the fence, fence, fence

    They jumped so high, high, high

    They reached the sky, sky, sky

    And didn't (or never) come back, back, back (or come down, down, down)

    Till the 4th of July ly ly

    An alternate version, sung in Canada, includes the words:

    She could not read, read, read

    She could not write, write, write

    But she could smoke, smoke, smoke

    Her father’s pipe, pipe, pipe

    An alternate version, sung in the American South:

    Mary Mack, Dressed in black,

    Silver buttons all down her back.

    She combed her hair And broke the comb

    She's gonna get a whoopin' when her Momma comes home

    Gonna get a whoopin' when her Momma comes home

    Clap[edit]

    A common version of the accompanying clap is as follows:

    pat arms across chest: Arms across chest

    pat thighs: Pat thighs

    clap hands: Clap hands

    clap right hands together: Clap right palms with partner

    clap left hands together: Clap left palms with partner

    clap both hand together

    Clap both palms with partner

    Another version:[4]

    &: One palm up, one palm down

    4: Clap both partners hands

    &: Clap own hands

    1: Cross arms to chest

    2: Slap thighs 3: Clap own hands Another Version: 4: Pat thighs &: Clap hands

    1: Clap partners right hand

    &: Clap hands

    &: Clap partners left hand

    &: Clap hands

    2: Clap both partners hands

    &: Clap hands Another Version:

    &: One palm up, one palm down

    1: Clap both partners hands

    &: Reverse hands

    2: Clap both partners hands

    &: Clap own hands

    4: clap partners right hand

    &: clap hands

    5: clap partners left hand

    &: clap hands

    6: clap partners right hand

    &: clap hands repeat

    Possible origins[edit]

    Miss Mary Mack was a performer in Ephraim Williams’ circus in the 1880s, and the song may be reference to her and the elephants in the show. [1]

    The first verse, the repetition, is also a riddle with the answer "coffin".[5]

    Early mentions of the part about the elephant do not include the part about Mary Mack.[6][7]

    Merrimack[edit]

    The origin of the name is obscure, and various theories have been proposed. According to one theory, originally referred to the USS Merrimack, a United States warship of the mid-1800s named after the Merrimack River, that would have been black, with silvery rivets. This may suggest that the first verse refers to the Battle of Hampton Roads during the American Civil War.[]
