Put your finger in Foxy's hole

Melody -

Put your finger in Foxy's hole,
Foxy's not at home;
Foxy's at the back door,
Picking at a bone.

A trick rhyme for the young. The two first fingers of one hand are crossed over the two first fingers of the other, leaving a small opening between, and the invitation is extended to 'Put your finger in Foxy's hole'. If the child complies, he gets a sharp nip from the thumbnail underneath, for the foxy has come back again.
