Based on tune of "Hokey Cokey"


Carebear Tactics

You fly your best ship in,
You fly your best ship out,
In, out, in, out, batter it all about.
You do the Carebear Tactics
And you lose your ship.
That’s what it’s all about!

Chorus:
Oh, oh, the carebear Tactics
Oh, oh the carebear Tactics
Oh, oh, the carebear tactics
Stabs on, weapons off, ra! ra!ra!

You fly your fleet leader in,
You fly your fleet leader out,
In, out, in, out, mess him all about.
You do the carebear Tactics
And you lose your Commander.
That’s what it’s all about!

Chorus:
Oh, oh, the carebear Tactics
Oh, oh the carebear Tactics
Oh, oh, the carebear tactics
Stabs on, weapons off, ra! ra!ra!

You fly your mining ships in,
You fly your mining ships out,
In, out, in, out, mining it all about.
You do the carebear Tactics
And you fail to mine.
That’s what it’s all about!

Chorus:
Oh, oh, the carebear Tactics
Oh, oh the carebear Tactics
Oh, oh, the carebear tactics
Stabs on, weapons off, ra! ra!ra!

You fly your merc fleet in,
You fly your merc fleet out,
In, out, in, out, you leave them all to die.

Oh, oh the carebear Tactics
Oh, oh, the carebear tactics
Stabs on, weapons off, ra! ra!ra!

You do the carebear Tactics
And you don't kill the frig.
That’s what it’s all about!

15,500 google results for Cokey
161,000 results for Pokey

My adult life has been shattered knowing that I have been singing the wrong words for the last 20 years.

I shall however continue to sing cokey in defiance of the pokey people.

Can't believe I have spent 5 minutes looking this up, but Cokey is right.... (from some website)(Pokey is for Americans. Canadians also sing Cokey)

Why do we sing the Hokey-Cokey?

Hmm...... well ....back in 17th century Puritan England anything 'popish'
or Roman Catholic was viewed with great suspicion and open to, at best,
ridicule. The Hokey-Cokey, with its song and actions, is a mimicry of the
Roman Catholic Mass. In those days the priest faced the altar (not the
people) and performed several actions as he consecrated the bread and wine
at Holy Communion. The words of the service were in Latin. You put your
left arm in ......etc was ridiculing the priest as he lifted his arms
heavenward during the rite. You do the Hokey- Cokey and you turn
around............ was when the priest turned to face the congregation with
the host (consecrated bread) to offer it to them.

Ooooh, the Hokey-Cokey......... hokey-cokey is a corruption of the Latin
words of consecration - Hoc est corpus: 'This is my body' (Note: many of
the strange words and phrases of our language are corruptions of other
languages introduced to our country over the years and few were educated
enough to speak or understand Latin). Knees bend, arm stretch,
ra-ra-ra....... knees bend is a ridicule of the genuflection (a kind of
religious curtsey to the altar) of the priest, arm stretch is when he holds
up his hands at the point of consecration in the service, and ra-ra-ra is
just a mimicry of the Latin words and prayers they didn't understand.

Today, many people do not know the origin of the song/dance and just do it
for fun, especially to teach children co-ordination (and their right from
their left). Today, in England, the Roman Catholic Mass is said in English
and is so similar to the Holy Communion of the Church of England that,
sometimes, if you didn't know what church you were in.........

LMAO

Next time I see some teacher showing little kids how to do the Hokey Cokey I'm gunna tell him that he's ridiculing Catholicism. I love it. Brilliant. I must educate myself further on things that have corrupted themselves into kid games.

Did you guys know that "Ring around the Rosey" is about the Black Plague?... Think about that next time you see your little girl singing "ashes ashes, we all fall down!" It's quite disturbing.

you are indeed correct..

Whenever children join hands in a circle, they sing this song of posies. The origin of this rose-colored ditty is something far more sinister — the Great Plague that swept through Europe in the 1600s. A rosy rash is the first symptom of the plague. The posies are herbs and spices carried to sweeten the air. The “a-tishoo” sneezing is another fatal symptom. (Later versions replace the sneezing with “ashes” from the cleansing bonfires.) When children fall down on the last line of this rhyme, they are unknowingly acting out their ancestors’ disease.

Ring around the rosies,
A pocket full of posies,

A-tishoo!

A-tishoo!

We all fall down. Laughing
