Adding to my earlier post, I also remember kids singing "Here we go Looby Loo", which according to the Esperance movement handbook pre WW1 had a dance to it which had a strong resemblance to the Hokey Cokey. No dance involved in my day though.
Thinking of twagging, Les, did the other little dears "sprag" on you? And if so did you retaliate with the lines:
"Tell-tale tit, yer tongue will split. All the little doggies will have a little bit" ?
