The good sister's Kerry connections may not be totally coincidental. There are lots of snatches of such doggerel that fit the rhythm of Kerry polkas - a form of heavily accented dance tune played mostly on squeeze boxes of various types. They're often used as mnemonics to remember the tune - or as dandling songs for children.
