The clapping song - Belle Stars

'The clapping song' is a song originally recorded by Shirley Ellis in 1965. The lyrics of 'The clapping song' are reminiscent of a nursery rhyme or jump-rope rhyme, and also feature instructions for a clapping game.

The Belle Stars covered the song in 1982 and it provided them with their first top 20 hit. This picture disc was a great item, one I couldn't resist buying even though I wasn't really impressed with the song.
