Derrymacash, what you need it access to a copy of " The Lore and Language of Schoolchildren" By Iona and Peter Opie (ISBN 0-19-282059-1) a lesser extent, its companion volume by the same authors "The singing game" (ISBN 0-19-284019-3) both deal with British Isles stuff and are unequalled fro their scholarship and thoroughness, including dealing with regional variations

When I was wee we used to recite the following nursery rhyme (Christ knows how these things wash up on the shores of memory, but it just did!).

Ah-choo, ah-choo, me mother has gone to church
She told me not to play with you because you're in the dirt
It's not because you're dirty
It's not because you're clean
It's because you've got the whooping cough and eat margarine

Other 'catters will surely remember rhymes which they used to chant in the playground, nasty or not. It'll be interesting to see whether these rhymes are regional or universal ...
