The 'Hey ho says Roly' version has also changed very little over the centuries. I'd say a lot of the variety experienced in the whole family is mainly down to rewriting and publishing. The strain with the most variety in oral tradition seems to be the 'Rigdum' one with the long tongue-twister chorus.
