I only know:

Eeny, meeny, miney, mo
Put the baby on the po.
When it's done,
Wipe it's bum.
Eeny, meeny, miney, mo.

I daren't even say the version that was popular when I was a child. It was racist.

Same as mummydriot.

Now i seems to be "baby" round here.

That's why I'm asking mummydoit, I didn't think we still caught black people by their toes and waited for them to wriggle!

I don't know what they use these days - everytime I hear it though I always have to stop myself from saying the racist one as it was what I must have said a 1000 times when I was little

Mummy's on the toilet
Out goes you

Is that one common?
