So, mine goes
Up above,
down below,
In the middle,
you're too slow.

DH's goes
Up above,
at the side,
down below,
You're too slow.

Clearly mine rhymes and scans and his doesn't.
DH is of the deluded firm belief that mine doesn't rhyme and his is the right version.

So who is right, MrIlythia or me?

you are, silly MrIlythia wink

DancingThroughLife Sun 07-Nov-10 17:36:36

The version I know goes

Gimme 5
On the side
Up above
Down below
You're too slow

So neither of you, sorry grin

MrsDeanWinchester Sun 07-Nov-10 17:37:32

Mine goes
Up above,
Down below
At the side,
You're too slow

Just to be difficult. grin

Dancing, that doesnt rhyme properly

MrsDW, yours is fine, as every other line rhymes.

Ilythia Sun 07-Nov-10 17:39:35

bbls, he is, isn't he, bless him.

dearprudence Sun 07-Nov-10 17:50:36

Sorry, but yet another version here:

High five
To the side
Down low
Too slow!

WhyHavePets Sun 07-Nov-10 17:50:42

Dancing through life is right IMO!

dearprudence Sun 07-Nov-10 17:51:18

So I should have said it's closer to your DH's so I'm afraid I'll have to take his side.

mumbybumby Sun 07-Nov-10 18:02:13

I'm with Dancingthroughlife, I'm afraid!

Sorry, you're too slow

flowerybeanbag Sun 07-Nov-10 18:10:02

Gimme five
To the side
Up above
Down below - too slow!

stubbornhubby Sun 07-Nov-10 18:11:37

up above
down below
on the side
you're too slow!

DancingThroughLife Sun 07-Nov-10 18:12:21

Ilythia, how about if it was written

Gimme 5
On the side
Up above, down below
You're too slow

The rhyme would look better, but in a 5 line rhyme, there can't be rhyming couplets.

I can't believe how many versions of this are out there!

BertieBotts Sun 07-Nov-10 18:18:47

No, it's

Gimme 5
To the side
Up above
You're in love
Down below
You're too slow

<rhymes superiously>

MrsDeanWinchester Sun 07-Nov-10 18:48:45

<smirks at DeanWinchestersBitch> grin

I only namechanged to this a few days ago and couldn't believe it wasn't already taken!

DeanWinchestersBitch Sun 07-Nov-10 18:51:59

I actually don't usually use this name, had thought about it though. You can keep the name.. but Dean's mine grin

MrsDeanWinchester Sun 07-Nov-10 18:54:59

No no no, he is MINE. I loooove him. <goes all teenagery>

I haven't had a crush like this in YEARS. blush

DeanWinchestersBitch Sun 07-Nov-10 20:37:00

I know, he is lovely. Seeing as we seem to have killed the thread anyway blush, who are you usually?

MrsDeanWinchester Sun 07-Nov-10 22:10:52

Oops. blush
I'm usually SacharissaCripslock. Who? I hear you cry! wink
Who are you? Clearly a woman of great taste, whoever you are. grin
