Subject: Lyr Req: Chorus: rickety rackety roo roo roo
I remember a song my mother used to sing to us. It's possibly Pete Seeger or Oscar Brand or Jean Ritchie, but I don't remember now, just that she sang it about the same time she sang the songs from Golden Slumbers: Lullabies from Far and Near, so in the mid-late 50s. The whole chorus is

Hey don dalicky rilicky ralicky rickety rackety roo roo roo

and I feel like it's a song about "As I was going to [someplace for something] rickety rackety roo roo roo I met an old woman who [something something[ hey done dalicky rilicky ralicky rickety rackety roo roo roo" but I can't remember the verses for the life of me.

Anyone? I'd love to find it if I can.
