Let's start with a English language variant.

This is from Mudcat user Haruo. Text below retrieved from here: http://mudcat.org/detail_pf.cfm?messages__Message_ID=927085


Quee Quay money-money-money-money dusty,
Quee Quay Quo, Quee Quay Quum,
Quee Quay money-money-money-money dusty,
Quee Quay Quo, Quee Quay Quum,
O Nicodemo! O jolly-olly-umbo!
O Nicodemo! O jolly-olly oompah! oompah! oompah!
Sarasponda, sarasponda, sarasponda, ret set set,
Sarasponda, sarasponda, sarasponda, ret set set!
A-dore-ee-oh! A-dore-ee-boom-day-oh!
A-dore-ay-boom-day-ret-set-set!
Hossay possay oh!



Recording of Haruo singing the 1st half of the song here: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/54546514/QueeQuaaQuooAkaSarasponda.mp3

If you will, please listen to or view the recordings. I think that the tune is the same and the words are variants.

Thanks!
