My informant remembers chanting this with her friends in elementary school. She believes that it was around third grade that girls began singing this to each other in line-up before school began.
Oh, my gosh! I think I need a manicure! (looks at nails)
The sun, I swear, (presses hand to forehead) is greasing up my well-done hair! (touches hair)
Go! Go! Fight! Fight! (bobs head back and forth), Gee I hope I look alright! (points to herself)
Forty-three, fifty four, I don’t know the stupid score! (Makes confused face)
I remember this chant from elementary school. It was used to mock the “girly-girls” by singing it in a high-pitch tone and using dramatic eye-rolls for emphasis. There was no purpose to the chant, other than to show your friends that you knew it. I believe that it is important because it reflects upon the American societal image of a “girly-girl” and the fact that girls themselves recognize how ridiculous it is.
