i'm rubber and you're glue.

When someone calls you names, you respond by reciting in an infuriating sing-song manner:

I'm rubber and you're glue,
Whatever you say,
Bounces off me
And sticks to you!"

This seems to be pretty much universal. This contribution came from Malaysia, where English is second language to many, yet this rhyme has widespread use.
