English term or phrase: Jesus, Maria, y Jose
Sometims instead of saying "Jesus, Mary, and Joseph!" I say Jesus, Maria, y Jose. My friend's mother is from Mexico and she said this little ryhme that comes after "Jesuse, Maria, y Jose" she told me that it ment "who will I marry?" but it ryhmes.... So I was wondering if anyone knew this little ryhme/saying and could they tell me, or if you know how to say "who will I marry?" and it rhymes (in Spanish).

Thank you very much I.A. (in anticipation)

Explanation:
I just made that up, for what it's worth! I asked my Mexican sister-in-law and she's never heard anything like it.
