hi all, does anyone know the hindi equivalent to rhymes such as eeni meenie miny mo catch a tiger by the toe if he crys let him go.
or
ipd dip sky blue ip dip i choose you.. something like that

basically the rhymes we'd sing as kids when we were trying to make a choice. a choice of a team-mate, choice of a candy.

akad bakad bambay bo May 1, 2007

It goes like this:

akad bakad bambay bo,
assi nabbey poorai sau
eka kalota teetar mota
chal madari paisa khota
khote ki khatai kisi kaam bhi naa aayee.

I remember this from my childhood... and there are other variants of this but this is undoubtedly the most popular one (or used to be).

Another version:

Akad bakad bambay bo,
assi nabbey poorai sau,
sau mein lagaa dhaagaa,
chor nikal ke bhaagaa,
rel aai chuk chuk
hamney khaai biskut,
biskut mein kaanTey
mummy nai maarey chaanTey
aaloo choley sastey
papa ji namastey

What's the translation? And the context of it? Is it like a song?
