Quee thee, quay thee, spittery spot,
Is it right or is it not?
Eeny, meeny, hickory hump,
What a funny way they come.
Injun sinjun zikery zin,
You may say it if you can.
It’s because I know so many
That I can’t remember any.

( Dr. Wolf: “Now, go ahead and explain. See, I rubbed that out too . . . your explanation.”

Mrs. Apple: “This is an old song that we sang at school in singing games, or when we were counting out.”)
