Here's another example of 'What's the Time, Mr Wolf?'

"One person stands with his back to the group who are about 10 yards away. They all call out "What's the time Mr Wolf?"
The 'Wolf' responds with a time say "10 o'clock" and quickly tuns. If he catches anyone still moving they are out. He can call 'Dinner Time' any time and then grab as many as he or she can until all caught."

In addition to his collection of children's rhymes, has numerous other examples of Australian folklore posted online. It's an important collection that imo, Mudcatters should be aware of and should be delighted to support.
