0 - "Another version of this rhyme served to count out who would be 'it' in the 'Hide & Seek' games of my own childhood. Mrs. Jones's version, chanted to a strong rhythm, precedes the playing of a game (essentially a series of conversational scenes) that is known throughout the South." --Step It Down [Source: Step It Down book]
