Information About I Don't Want to Go to Mexico

I Don't Want to Go to Mexico is a really fun and humorous kids' nursery rhyme. It was first recorded in a Hispanic neighborhood of Chicago in 1987. This shows that nursery rhymes are not just for fun but they reflect on histories past events and people. This song, with the hand clapping game, is fit for kids in kindergarten and up.

I Don't Want to Go to Mexico which is also referred to as "Shame, Shame, Shame", is a hand clapping game. All hand clapping games have specific hand movements that go with it to make it even more fun for kids to learn. Like in all games, there must be a winner, so at the end of the rhyme the first person to tap the other player wins.

To learn how to do these hand movements, you can watch videos like this one on youtube or just listen to the song on video here.

I'm not sure if this is the best song to teach children. Similar to other other popular children's songs I was told this one has a negative political meaning. Basically the policeman is suppose to be a deportation officer and the young child is trying to avoid him because he will either deport her or bribe her family. I could be wrong just something I read somewhere.

This is a KIDS song and game, they don't think about the lyrics, they just know it's fun to play. People need to RELAX! When I was little, EVERYONE played this game and sang this song, yes, even those of Hispanic race.
