    Something like this, right?

    Eeny, meeny, miny, moe,
    Catch a tiger by the toe.
    If he hollers, let him go,
    Eeny, meeny, miny, moe.​

    But... did you know?

    "Eenie-Meenie-Minie-Mo,
    Catch a ****** by his toe,
    If he hollers make him pay,
    fifty dollars every day."​
