The first lines are certainly similar.

The waxies' Dargle dates from the mid-19th century, and I imagine the song does too. Iko Iko was written in 1953 about the parades in New Orleans.

My grandma and your grandma
Were sittin' by the fire.
My grandma told your grandma
"I'm gonna set your flag on fire"

Hey now! Hey now!
Iko, Iko, unday
Jockamo feeno ai nan?
Jockamo fee nan?
