Subject: Old Ditty Mother Used to Sing

When brothers would argue at times or tension between small children in our household, Mother would sing a ditty that went something like this: "E-I-Ike us, Nobody like us, (Everything's going our Way?).....having a great day or have a great day

In later years, all she could remember were the first few words, nothing in between and something about having a great day (she thought)

Does anyone know of a ditty like this that may have been sung to soothe the soul?

Are these related?

(1) A version from here:

THE HIRAM HOUSE CAMP SONG

I de I de ike us, nobody like us
We are the kids (& staff) from Hiram House Camp
Always a-winnin', always a-grinnin'
Always a-feelin' fine. I-I-I-I-I-I-I-I

(2) From here (Fight Songs: A), and here too.

Appalachian State

Hi-Hi-y-ike-us
Nobody like us,
We are the mountaineers, mountaineers, mountaineers,
Always a-winning,
Always a-grinning,
Always a-feeling fine
You bet, hey!

(3) From here:

THE KIDS FROM CISV

Aj aj I like us.
Nobody's like us.
We are the kids from CISV.
Always a winning,
always a grinning,
always a having fun ... aj aj aj.

(4) From here:

The Kids from CISV

Ayay yayakas
Nobody's like us.
We are the kids from CISV.
Always a sharing
always a daring
always a having fun ... ayayay.
