You may be thinking of the Anthony Newley version (a hit in the 60's) which was a bit more rocky than the twee nursery rhyme. He also had a hit with "pop goes the weasel".
I remember him most for the TV series "The Strange World of Gurney Slade"
Not sure where you'll find the words though. It's on a best of AN CD at Amazon for £5.97
