Mum's rhyme 1920's Yorkshire was

Rah Rah chicker rah
Chicker rah rhoney
pony ping pang piney
ala kala witchwood
ching chang choo

We used one potato and eeny meeny, with the N word (not knowing what it meant).

My kids did lots of clapping rhymes

A sailor went to sea sea sea
to see what he could see see see
but all thet he could see see see
was the bottom of the deep blue sea sea sea....

There are lots of other verses to this, each having different actions

You've got me thinking now....
