I grew up with the Eeny, Meeny, Miny, Moe version you did too, but I also had this childhood rhyme we sang.  I don’t think it is any different, personally, than his:

Great green globs of greasy, grimy gopher guts / Mutilated monkey feet / Chopped up baby parakeet  / Great green globs of greasy, grimy gopher guts / And me without my spoon

I still love it. =)

“Eeny meeny miney mo, catch a tiger by it’s toe. If he hollers make him pay 50 dollars every day.  My mother told me to pick the very best one and you are not it!”

I grew up with the eeny, meeny, miny mo….but at the end, we added, “and my mother punched your mother right in the nose – what color was the blood?” and then you went through colors, “red, blue…”  It really is odd – where did all this violence come from?  WEIRD!

We had the “catch a tiger” bit followed by “My mother told me to pick the very best one and you are not it.”

The British version is waaaay too dirty for my tastes.

We did eeny meeny.  You guys might be interested to know that it was not until the last 4 decades that it was a “tiger” that you caught by the toe. It used to be the n-word. Which in a way is considerably more violent than the British version, which just uses curse words. That version, thankfully, died out almost entirely after the Civil Rights Movement.
