Thread Name: eena meena mackeracka (children's rhymes)
Subject: RE: eena meena mackeracka
In Lois Choksy's book, "The Kodaly Method", I found a similar 'counting out' rhyme:

Icka backa soda cracka Icka backa boo Icka backa soda cracka Out goes you

I also learned "eeny meany" with 'tiger'. My neighbor sang it with the n-word. One of many things we couldn't agree on as kids!
