I brought this out of the deep recesses of my memory. My assistant scoutmaster
would do this with a Scout at a campfire.
ASM: Repeat after me. One hen.
Scout: One hen.
ASM: One hen, two ducks.
Scout: One hen, two ducks.
ASM: One hen, two ducks, three squacking geese.
Scout: One hen, two ducks, three squacking geese.
Etcetera. He would go up the line, but the Scout would usually loose it at
Seven or Eight.
Does this sound like what you are looking for?
Here are all the words (as best I rememeber them):
Three squacking geese.
Four limerick oysters.
Five corpulant porposes.
Six pairs of Don Alverso's tweezers.
Seven thousand men in full battle array.
Eight brass monkeys from the ancient, sacred crypts of Egypt.
Nine apathetic, sympathic, diabetic old men with a marked propensity for
procrastination and sloth.
Ten lyrical, spherical, diabolical denezens of the deep who hall, stall
around the corner of the quay of the quivy of the quaff all at the same time.
