Does Anyone Know a Danish Rhyme That Starts with “Reever Rosper…”

Don Larson wrote asking for help with a Danish rhyme…


My grandmother was Danish (married to a Norwegian) and taught us the finger names rhyme – thanks so much for bringing back that memory. She also would say, after a big meal, something that sounded phonetically like ‘reever rosper, k’noger k’nogger.’ The context was that my stomach is full (or upset) from eating too much. There was more to the rhyme, but I only remember the first four words. Can you shed some light on this?


If anyone can help with this rhyme, please comment below.
