Can Someone Help with a Czech Rhyme?

Jennifer wrote:

My husband’s aunt always does a little hand rhyme/song with my children that goes something like, “smudgala mischka krukeelaka….” I know I’m butchering the spelling and I’m trying to find the correct words and the meaning of this Czech rhyme in English. My daughter wants to share it with her class for a cultural sharing day.

Please help! Thank you.

    Jennifer, where are you from?
    Can you add some more words, please?
    Can you look at

  2. Hana Says:

    Maybe it is this one:

    Czech Republic – Vařila myši?ka kaši?ku

    Hi Hana.
    Is this where I email you back? My aunt tried to write out the words as best she knew them, but she is not sure. She has written down, “smazila miska krupky hrach na…na kamnach…tomudala tomudala…” It is a rhyme about some mice I believe. Does this help at all??
    Thank you.

    Would it be this one?

    Smažila myška krupky, hrách,
    smažila je na kamnách.
    Tomu dala, tomu nic,
    tomu málo, tomu víc.

    Ten plakal, ten skákal
    a ten maličký
    do komůrečky chvátal
    tam se napapal.
