Albanian kid rhyme

Do you recall the kid rhyme “Eeny meeny miny moe”? There’s one for Albanian!

“Kujt ti bjeri dhjeta është e verteta, nëqoftëse nuk besoni, filloni numuroni deri në …1,2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10!”

This makes no sense but it’s translated “To whom you did the tenth is true, if you don’t believe, start counting up to … 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10!”

“ngriva, shkriva gjalpin e lepiva , e lepiu miu , macja me ariun! …mami tha per portokalle, portokalle skishte fare, mami doli ge-nje-shta-re.”

Another roughly translated “I raised, melted butter and leprosy, clasped the rat, the cat with the bear! … mom said about oranges, oranges that he had, mom got out of the way.”
