Learned this in California early 80's in kindergarten.

I woke up Sunday morning I looked up on the wall,
The beetles and the bedbugs were having a game of ball,
The score was 6 to nothing, the beetles were ahead
The bedbugs got a homerun, they knocked me outta bed,

I'm singin' eenie meenie and a miny moe, moe, moe, moe
Catch a wiffer waffer by the toe and if he hollers, hollers, hollers
Let him go I'm singing, eenie meenie and a miny moe.

I woke up Sunday morning and ordered ham and eggs,
I ate so many eggs, they all ran down my legs.

I'm singin' eenie meenie and a miny moe, moe, moe, moe,
Catch a wiffer waffer by the toe and if he hollers, hollers, hollers,
Let him go I'm singin' eenie meenie and a miny moe.

My father is butcher,
My mother is a spy,
And if you don't believe me just call the FBI.


I'm singin' eenie meenie and a miny moe, moe, moe, moe,
Catch a wiffer waffer by the toe and if he hollers, hollers, hollers,
Let him go I'm singin' eenie meenie and a miny moe.

games, riddles, or tests don't work on me
scratch the ticks scratch the fleas.
had too much of miss sandys dogs you see.
love the one they called michelle.
but the rest can go to hell.
and if they think they've seen the last of me...
they're as fool as fool can be.
I'll yell it from the roof tops hollers hills and lakes
to have her heart for goodness sakes
would be sublime would set me free
from this prison of loneliness wait and see.
alomost had her a time ago
but darkness and that devil tricked her sole
It was up to her you if I should let her go.
but that devil was a friend of mine and didn't k-know
if I was or fake you were true.
about the time we spent us two
maybe god would show his favor.
before the devil did enslave her.
before I do give up up that lass
I'd drill that devil in his

While growing up in south Louisiana, we used to sing this little "ditty," while sitting knee to knee, and doing hand claps with each other. If you missed a beat, or did the wrong sequence of claps, you had to start over. These words are a little different to most of the others. We did this in the fifties when I was growing up.

I waked up Sundaymorning,
And looked upon the wall,
The roaches and the bedbugs were having them a ball,
The score was ten to nothing,
The bedbugs were ahead,
The roaches hit a homerun,
And knockedme out of bed.
