Jake Thakray the late folk singer remembered it as a shepherd's sheep-counting rhyme:
Yan, Chan, Tether, Mether, Pip
Aysar, Saysar, Acker, Conder, Dick,
Yanadick, Chanadick, Tetheradick, Metheradick, Bumfit
Yanabum, Chanabum, Tetherabum, Metherabum, Jiggit.
The shepherd would then drop a pebble in a tin and start over.

Here's an item of interest: Cocteau Twins recorded a song called "Donimo" on their 1984 album, Treasure. In the chorus of the song, Elizabeth Fraser distinctly sings "Eena meena eye rye mackaracka. Eeena meena eye rye dominacka." Check it out on YouTube.

Interesting how the versions vary, though you could surmise that much of it is just nuance/imperfect memory/hard-to-write-down words. But there is a definite dichotomy between those with "lollipop" or similar and those without.

Those of a certain age may remember a series called "The Comedians" which was broadcast on UK TV from the late 60s and into the 70s. It featured a collection of old-fashioned stand-up comics and launched a number of them into long and successful careers. The comedians included Mike Reid, Les Dawson, Frank Carson and others. In the popular northern club-circuit style of the time, the humour was not something many people would applaud these days - racial jokes were popular, and were even told with glee by Charlie Williams, the only black comedian on the show and a rarity in the profession at the time. Frank Carson, a northern Irishman, told Irish jokes. Bernard Manning was abusive towards everyone, which made him very popular at the time.

Anyway, the point of all this is that one of the Comedians - I think it was Frank Carson, but I'm open to correction - released a single based on that rhyme around 1970, which received some airplay on BBC Radio 1 - then the coolest station to listen to, despite employing Tony Blackburn. The lyrics went:

Eenie meenie mackeraka, om pom packeraka
Eenie meenie mackeraka, om pom push (x2)

Ip dip, chibberdy dip, you clap your hands and begin to skip
Ip dip, chibberdy dip, you can't wait around all day.

... and that was pretty much it. The "ip dip" bit suggests the lyrics (so to speak) were written around childish methods of deciding who was "it". I can't find any reference to the song (so to speak) but I know that I could never imagine anything quite like it, so it must be real. Anyone else remember this odd cultural item?

When my Grandmother got upset because we were about to do something that might hurt us she would blurt out "eeka meeka meeka makka mukka" although I am not sure because I sometimes remember it as smucka mu bucca ma boo. When she was not upset she could not remember it and said she did not know what it meant.

I was brought up in Stokesley, north yorkshire and we were taught the following and it keeps popping back in my head every so often.

Eenie meeny makarakka hum pum pakkarakka, eenie meenie makkarakka hum pum push!

Not quite sure what game we played to it but it may have been an elimination game with push being the one that got "pushed" out.

I never realised there were so many different versions or the chant.
I've forgotten the last part but we said...

Eeny meeny, maka raka
rare raa dumaraka
chicka barley lollipop
a red, white or blue?

Then the person being pointed at would choose between red, white or blue and the chant would continue..

e.g
blue=
blue is for sky,sky,sky
blue is for sky, so out goes you!

I think white was for cloud, but I can't remember what red stood for!!

Well, let's keep this thread going for ever! Mine (South Staffordshire, around 1950) was:

Eeny meeny mackeracka
Rare rye dumeracka
Chickabocker lollipopper
Rum pum PUSH

And if you didn't like the answer when someone was rejected at push you ignored it and went on with:

O U T spells out so out you GO.

And yes, we also used the normal eeny, meeny minie mo (with "if" he hollers, not "when").

"Ink Pink Pepper and Ink Stooby Stawby Stybey Stink"

For us it was always, and will always be

Eeney meeney macaraca
Air-eye dominaca
Chickaraca boomaraca
Bom bom French

This chorus was usually skipped to. We never gave a thought to the meaning of course, and never saw it written down. If it had been written, there would naturally have been fewer variations around the country.

Don't you love this kind of reminiscence? Mind you, I wouldn't want a whole morning of it.............off to work!
