Here's my version of this little ditty when I was back at camp about 40 years ago:

Flea (this word as well as each line is repeated)
Flea fly
Flea fly flow
Vista

Coomalata Coomalata Coomalata Vista
Oh, no no no no no vista

Eenie meenie deci meenie
Oo watch a walla meanie
Exa meanie solla meanie
Oo watch a wha

Big billy oten doten
Bo bo ba deeten dotten
Shhhhhhhhh (and you'd put your hands together and make a fish motion)

40 years later, I still say it every once in a while. It brings a smile to my face.
