Here's a counting-out rhyme that's recited in England…




Other Versions:

Eeeny, meeny, miney, mo.
Put the baby on the po.
When he's done,
Wipe his bum.
And tell his mother what he's done.

A version from Yorkshire is:

Eeeny, meeny, miney, mo.
Put the baby on the po
When it's done, wipe its bum
With a piece of chewing gum!

In England they also recite almost the same version of Eeeny, Meenie, Miney, Mo that's known in the US.

Frances wrote, "The latest I've heard in schools was:

Eenie meenie miney moe,
Catch a tiger by the toe,
If he hollers let him go,
Eenie meenie miney mo,
My mother says that you are it!"
