Does anyone know any of the "nonsense songs" which people used to sing when they were dancing to well known dance tunes. They often seem to have given the tune its name. My mother used to sing "Chase me Charlie, Chase me Charlie / Lost the leg of my drawers" to "Cock of the North" (locally called "Chase me Charlie") and my in-laws used to use "Auntie Mary had a Canary / Up the leg ...".
I know one or two more but not very well. Might start a small project on these if I get enough info.
