GUEST,Bob Coltman Origins: Rig-a-jig-jig (16) RE: Origins: Rig-a-jig-jig 03 Sep 17

Though this is off the questioner's intention, but Rig-a-jig-a-jig appears in the chorus of another bawdy song, The One-Balled Riley, commonly bowdlerized as The One-Eyed Riley.

It seems to be used in bawdry for the onomatopoeic effect.

It would be interesting to list other songs that use it. I wouldn't be surprised if some were Mother Goose rhymes.
