Thread Name: Lyr Req: Children's rhymes in dance songs
Subject: RE: Children's rhymes in dance song lyrics
I seem to recall there were a few of them from the early 60's. One which comes to mind was Chubby Checker's Hooka Tooka

Hooka tooka my soda cracker
Does your mother chaw tobacca

If I remember correctly that was a kid's rhyme

Also, not a dance song but Lonnie Donnegan included

"ABCD XYZ Cat's in the cupboard and he can't see me", in Rock Island Line.
