Down Down Baby

Down Down Baby is a popular rhyme and has been in use since the middle of the twentieth century. It is also known as Roller Coaster and is designed to get people up and moving as it is a clapping game. We do not know who originally wrote the song, but it became famous when Little Anthony released it in the 1960s.

To play it properly, the rhyme is recited by the group as the children all clap in time with the rhyme until it has been completed, and it is designed for two players to actively participate while others look on to see if they are able to remember the appropriate clapping routine.

As the game has grown in popularity, many new variations have come to the fore, with plenty of them being suitable for young people to access. The song has also been highlighted by a number of famous people or grounds including Country Grammar, The Drums, Hot Dog, and OMG by Usher.
