Another Yiddish Nursery Rhyme #galicia


Carol Cohen <cgandhc@...>
 

Dear Galitzianers: I am next!! My grandfather who was >from Podhajce
in Galicia always recited the following rhyme to our family, and I
would love to
know what it means:

Ekeda, mekeda, sukeda, mah (maybe zuge de ma - said the mother?)
Ahbul, Fahbul, dubul, dah
Ex, mex, trix, a roce
Upiana, pushikana
Erek shmata
Em grem, yushik, nem
Kaneece, kanoose, kanoss


I have found one other person >from the Tarnopol Gibernia who knew
this rhyme, but she doesn't know what it means either. Any help
translating this would be appreciated. Thanks, Carol Cohen
