The James T. Callow Folklore Archive
My younger brother and I would say this to each other
if one could get the other to look at something that
really wasn't there:
"Made you look, you dirty crook,
You stole your mother's pocket book.
You turned it in, you turned it out,
You turned it into sauerkraut."
Then the one who made the other look would say,
"You one'd it."
The other would say,
"You two'd it."
We would go back and forth saying
"You three'd it."
"You four'd it."
"You five'd it."
"You six'd it."
"You seven'd it."
Finally, the one to get in the last word says'
"You eight (ate) it."
