Skate tongue: under or over the shin pads?

I leave the tongues out over the shin guards, but I cover them up with my socks.
I don't know what the "advantage" to leaving the tongue out is, but I can tell you that it feels a little different. I learned to skate without hockey shin pads, so I'm just used to having the tongue that way. I don't think there's a real difference between the two.
My shin guards always slide down a little bit, so I like having the skate tongue serve as a stopper to keep them in place. I should probably just get new shin guards.
