In the morris community and generally in those sections of the folk community in the USA I've been privy to, it is customary when singing "On Ilkla Moor Baht 'Aht" to shout "Up the ducks1" after singing "Then we shall go eat up the ducks..."

Does anyone know when/where this started? Is it just a U.S. thing? Is it just a regional thing in the U.S.? Curious minds want to know.

On a related note, how far has "Free the Toast!" spread in response to the line "...and let the toast go free" in John Tams' "Round Goes the Wheel of Fortune/Rolling Home"?
