Childhood Jingle

Mina mina
Daam... Doom...
Duss... Puss...
Koin... (n is nasal)

I heard this jingle today after a long, long time since my childhood. Whenever someone farted, we kids used to sing this to embarrass them. We used to pinch close our nose and I think we were also dancing in a particular way while singing so that it sounded and looked awkward.

The jingle does not mean anything because except two nouns (Avalaki and Kaanchana) all other words are gibberish. This jingle brought a flood of memories of those years.

Kids the world over find wonderful ways to have fun with the simplest things--especially farting!
