Does anyone remember the rest of this poem??

I only remember this much of it: ''.......had a piece of Turkey on a plate of China, dipped in Greece............Italy kicked Sicily right in the middle of the Meditaranean Sea.'' Please can you help me fill in the gaps, I forgot how it begins.

    I think this was mostly a little poem to help with Geography. It's so old, though, that there's not much info out there and I found several variations of it.

    Here's one:

    Long legged Italy

    Kicked poor Sicily

    Into the middle of the

    Mediterranean Sea

    Austria was Hungary

    Took a bit of Turkey

    Dipped it in Greece

    Fried it in Japan

    And ate it off China

    Another reads:

    'Austria was Hungary, Very Very Hungary, Ate a bit of Turkey, Dipped in Greece. Long-legged Italy, kicked poor Sicily, Into the Mediterranean Sea.'

    Yet another version:

    Austria was Hungary and ate a bit of Turkey,

    Slipped on Greece and broke a bit of China.

    And yet another version:

    Germany was Hungary, ate a bit of Turkey, on a bit of China, dipped in Greece. Greece was slippery, slipped into Italy, kicked a bit of Sicily right into the middle of the Mediterranean Sea!

    Hope this helps!

    Austria was hungry so had a bit of Turkey dipped into Greece, Greece being slippery slipped into Italy and long legged Italy kicked poor Sicily into the Mediterranean sea.

    I remember it as the following:-

    Naughty Italy

    Kicked poor Sicily

    Into the Mediterranean sea

    Up popped Austria

    Was a little Hungary

    Had a bit Turkey

    Dipped it in Greece

    Fried it in Japan

    And ate off of China

    Big boot Italy

    Kicked poor Sicily

    into the Mediterranean Sea

    up jumped Austria

    said she was Hungary

    so had a bit of Turkey

    dipped in Greece

    fried in Japan

    and eaten off China.
