Subject: RE: eena meena mackeracka (children's rhymes)
This is what I remember from early childhood.

I went into a China shop to buy a loaf of bread
he put me in a pillowcase and this is what he said,
"Eanie meanie macker racker
rare eye dominacka
chicka racka lollipoppa
om pom push!"

The rhyme was used when playing "Spuds" to decide who went first/last, in whichever game we were about to play.
