Thanks, Bernadette. Happy visiting!

And also thanks to others who have posted and hopefully will post to this thread!

Please note, This thread can be about any type of food, or drink, or fruit, or dessert found in kid's rhymes. The rhyme doesn't have to be about "fast food".

See this handclap rhyme for example:

EANIE MEANIE JUSTA LEANIE
Eenie Meanie Justa Leanie
Ooca Acla Trackalacka, I love you.
Take a peach, Take a plum
Take a piece of bubble gum.
Teacher, Teacher, Dummy Dum
Gimme back my bubble gum.
Saw you with your boyfriend last night.
How do you know?
I was peekin' through the keyhold.
NOSY
Wash them dishes
LAZY
Jump out the window
CRAZY
Peaches on the tree, Bananas on the floor
Jump back baby. I DON'T LOVE YOU NO MORE!

There are multiple versions of this rhyme. I collected this version in 1998 from Donetta A., Pittsburgh, PA.. Donetta is an African American woman who recalls learning this in 1984 from another African American girl who was visiting Pittsburgh from Alabama.
