I think Ram sam sam is a Girl Guide camp fire song, that's where I learnt the Pizza hut version.
And I'm amazed the Azizzi doesn't know what every English 2 year old does (or did in my day)
Hey diddle diddle, the cat and the fiddle,
The cow jumped over the moon.
The little dog laughed to see such fun*
And the dish ran away with the spoon

*"sport" in some written versions

Hi tiddly i ti
Eat brown bread
I saw a sausage fall down dead
Along came a savaloy and hit him on the head
I tiddly i ti eat brown bread

Something like that anyway, from my sister's London childhood (c1960), I'd never heard in at primary school, so like Chinese skipping it must have got here 1956-1961. No tune, just a rhythmic chant.
