DESCRIPTION: "Hurrah for Bobby Bumble, He never minds a tumble, But up he jumps and rubs his bumps and doesn't even grumble."
EARLIEST DATE: 1950 (Arnold)

NOTES [45 words]: Arnold's informant Josie Miller said that this was a song she used with her kindergarten students. But I can't help but note how different the meaning would be if the word "bumps" were replaced by "rump" or "rumps." It just feels like it is a cleaned up item, somehow. - RBW
